Teddy Bear + Digital Photo Frame = DIY Project

Teddy Bear + Digital Photo Frame = DIY Project

To be honest, Unplggd reader Siobhan's DIY teddybear scares the heck out of us, perhaps because we were always bit wary about Teddy in the movie A.I.. But from a tech standpoint, it's a pretty cool DIY job using a digital photo frame to replace the stuffed animal's face, albeit one that would result in us sleeping with a baseball bat nearby...

Siobhan explains: This weekend I completed a fairly ambitious project, considering I am not very tech savvy. I received a digital photo frame for Christmas last year, which I immediately knew would get no use in our house in its original condition. As a good friend's birthday approached, I started to brainstorm how I could re-vamp this perfectly operational, but somewhat hokey device. An article on ">instructables.com inspired me to rip the face off a teddy bear and give him a digital photo screen-face instead! My friend adores the gift.

P.S. The bear wears the back end of the photo frame almost like a backpack, which has been embedded into the back and covered with a nice shiny gold fabric, with all buttons and jacks still accessible.

We commend Siobhan's DIY effort, despite our trepidation about sharing a room with Terror Teddy 3000; it would be a great idea for use with a wi-fi enabled digital frame so friends could send/upload new faces of themselves to the frame.
