Junkyard Jumbotron is a web-based service that performs a rather unique function. It allows you to turn any number of screens into a massive collective display for showcasing photos.

You’ll need screens of some sort (any will work: old CRT monitors, iPads, cell phones) and a way to get them online. Each screen needs to be able to access the web; Junkyard Jumbotron takes care of the rest. Check out the video above to see it in action or visit the link below to read more.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
