This is a guide to tell you how to make your own PSPONTV / PC (also really cheap)
A camera (I used a logitech 4000 pro, and quick cam express)
2x 15x25cm cardboard
2x 7x15cm cardboard
1x 8x8cm cardboard
for best result use 1mm thick cardboard
2x 6cm diameter elastic band (well around that is good, its used to hold the camera)
Front & Back
Draw very precisely these dimentions on the 15x25cm board. (Back)
The dimentions on the bottom are:
6cm 2.5cm 0.6cm 11cm
The dimentions on the right side are:
Note that the left side is 9.5cm and not 8cm. The arrow indicates thats where you connect your 9.5cm side to the 8cm side. Please read at the end on how to precisely draw the the 8cm line perfectly when connecting to the 9.5cm**.
The front part is exactly the same as the back except that you do not need the sides LEFT of the arrow. You only need the pyramid shape piece.
Please draw these dimention as precisely as possible
Both left side and right side is the same
The dimention on the bottom is
The dimention on the side is
4.5cm (right side)
5.5cm (left side)
Drawing the cross in the middle will help you make the circle hole in the middle later (hole size differs from camera)
The dimention is
4.5cm x 8cm
After drawing all the dimentions go and confirm that all the lengths and widths are right then use a exactoknive to cut out the pieces.
For Back side please DO NOT cut the lines inside the whole box as you want them to be all connected.
After cutting out the pieces, go and check the diameter of the lens area of your camera. Then cut a hole according to the size on the TOP piece.
For the BACK piece, please bend on the lines where it was indicated so that it look like this:
With all the cutting out of the way, it is time for you to make sure your dimentions are right.
After the confirmation you can go ahead and piece them together. The out come should look something like this:
Place the box with the extra Flap on top of the PSP so that it will look like this:
How to mount your camera onto the box
Well how I did it was use 2 elastic band and just hold it against the back of the box and it will stay firmly inplace unless you shake it alot. You need to cross your elastic band so that it makes a X shape and that it is hanging on the wire of the camera. Like this:
After placing the elastic band on the camera, place the lens area in the hole on the TOP piece of the box. Then use the elastic band and stretch it to the back of the PSP. Behind the extra flap that was made on the BACK side. It should now hold and look like this:
And there you go, your very own PSPONTV / PC !!!
You probably need to adjust the possitioning of the camera afterwards but that is easy enough for everyone to do, if they can get through the whole guide.
**This also applies to the left and right side drawing. First on the longer side, find the middle point of the line. Then using a protractor find the 90degree line and draw it (11cm for this guide) after you draw it. The end of the line would be the middle of your shorter line (the 4.5cm and the 8cm) so now you can also draw the line that is 90degree from that line. like this:
