Psycho Hack: Mac Mini Becomes Custom Newspaper Vending Machine



Scott Walker, the assistant managing editor of the Birmingham (Ala.) News, has made a hack for the ages. Taking an old newspaper vending machine, as a base, he fitted a 17″ LCD screen to the front of the box and then rigged a Mac mini running PhotoPresenter to constantly stream the front pages of newspapers from the Newseum. As well as anything from his iTunes library.

It’s a wonder to behold. And all of this on deadline, too!
