Xbox WVI Progress

Post by WTB360LABTOP » Mon Jul 04, 2011 8:22 pm

I am starting to build an Xbox WVI, I will be using this thread to keep everyone informed.

Day 1 - Device Planning
Spoiler:
I will be using this open frame 7" lcd
http://aeicomp.com/Detail.asp?Product_I ... 15_LCD7XLE" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

This Transmitter RFLink AVS-5811 5.8ghz (so no interference)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0002EXJ8 ... S3BS1DBQ92" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

This RCA Male to 3.5mm female converter
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000I23TT ... D0VY2RAMB4" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Battery
5000mah 12v Nimh battery
http://www.batteryspace.com/nimhbattery ... baetc.aspx" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

12v 2.5mm Barrel Splitter
DIY

Current Price: $250
Day 2 - Design
Spoiler:
I want this WVI to be universal, not only for Xbox. Because of this I am not going to put a controller inside the case. For a material, I plan on using brushed black aluminum front and back, and for the sides I will use non-brushed aluminum. It will look like an iPhone 4, or at least in some ways. I am still thinking of the design.

Bought the battery and screen. I can work on the battery wiring while saving up for the transmitter.
