Now that Electric Objects has discontinued their hardware business, there are likely to be people with the existing devices who are interested in doing new things with them. Also, while Giphy is supporting the EO service, we shouldn’t assume they will do so forever. Also, it would be neat!
@dariusk wrote up an article a while ago about hacking the EO1:
… which may have some relevant information. Also, he’s indicated interest in working on this feature, but I’ll let him speak for himself on that front!
I probably can’t be of much help, but consider me an interested party!
I’m not sure about the effort to port Openframe to Android, nor do I know much about the Hardware of EO. But does it come with HDMI input? If not directly accessible maybe you could unscrew the back cover and find it there. In that case, it’s probably easiest to use a Raspberry Pi with Openframe and connect it to the screen.
Good point. There isn’t an HDMI input outside the case, but I haven’t opened it up to look. I probably won’t, either, as long as it still working as is. Anyway, thanks for the idea!
