Calendars are great to have in your house, but no matter how appealing the pictures, you often neglect to update them with actual events in your life. Instructables user Piney wanted a smarter wall calendar, and built one with a Raspberry Pi and a LCD screen.
To actually construct this, you'll need a Raspberry Pi, a cheap LCD screen, and some mounting tools. From there, the process is actually really simple, using some software hacks to get rid of the mouse cursor and make sure your Google Calendar is always open and full screen. The end result -- an always-up-to-date calendar on your wall -- is an awesome little trick. Head over to Instructables for the full guide.
