Took a stab a a retro '50s Tv topper for Twilight Zone.
Raspberry Pi driving a 7" screen, the enclosure is laser cut from plywood. Just a rough mock up and kitschy color scheme. Will basically play anything you put on a USB stick in an endless loop... fun exercise. Need to get a 90 degree elbow for the hdmi cable - won't currently fit the enclosure with a standard cable...
I'll probably tinker with a few other designs. Any thoughts?

Good idea but I would love to see it like a 50s style tv vs more simpsons looking one. Keep it up!

yeah, I have some of those segmented antennas on order for sure, as for the the the style - it was just a first pass. I had a few ideas, some are simply out because of the shape and working in a rectangular screen
