Yay, I started meddling with my wearable computer again, read my other blog postings if you don't know what I'm talking about. Now I know why it seemed like my display cable suicided when I was demoing this thing, it was because of two things.
First, I had lots of troubles because of my cables so it seemed like it was the obvious culprit, second, that got my attention, so I didn't get that those AA batteries could not possibly run the computer and the display for a long enough time. When I jacked them on my laptop, it worked fabulously.
Now, I've got some positive news about my display, that is it works almost flawlessly now. Pictures are a bit shaken, hard to shoot them with my camera as it doesn't fit too well... Screen is actually readable now better than in these pictures, even though it still has a bit of shadows toward right. Hard to believe I've gotten this far without needing to pay an arm and a leg.
I've also just gotten an absolutely flawless black and white picture, but not for consistently enough to get a picture of it. It's much more readable than my best achievement with colours.
This picture show how it was before, and still is before I do the magic.
And this is how it is after I've done it. The magic is to hold the display connector tightly with my fingers, and they must touch both cables, dunno why, but don't care as long as it works. I need to connect them somehow now.
This is the crude connector I'm talking about.
