The Sony-Scopeman – turn a watchman into a vector display with an ESP32 #ESP32 @Sony @FauthNiklas
Niklas Fauth uses an analog Sony Watchman model FD-10 TV as the basis of an ESP32 WiFi/Bluetooth controlled vector display. The Watchman’s mainboard is replaced with a new one containing the ESP32 module.
There are two modes which can be selected via the power switch.
In “Audio” mode, the ESP32 acts as a bluetooth speaker. Play back audio files from your smartphone or laptop to hear and see the soundwaves. You can change the size by adjusting the playback volume
