Microsoft Surface RT: framed and powered

Bob Lamaster 3 months ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Windows • updated 3 months ago 1

If you happen to have an old Microsoft Surface RT around, you know it's not good for much anymore.  However, it makes a great wall panel for Action Tiles.

If you have one of these, I've created two 3D-printable files that you can use.

The first is a frame.  Printed in white (or whatever is complimentary to your wall color), it gives the project a finished look.

The second is a way to handle the charging cord, without needing to drill holes in your walls.

Pictures of the completed installation are available at the links above.  If you don't have a 3D printer, you can use the "order this printed" button to find someone in the community who will print it for you.

Although it's not shown in the pictures, you can also paint the small part of the cord that is visible with your wall paint to make it mostly disappear into the background.

Also, I should mention that the tablet is mounted to the wall using three 3M Command Strips.  I used the two-part Velcro variety so that I can remove the tablet from the wall if necessary.
