ADABOX 016 mount display

Does anyone have a good way to mount the display in a window?

The screw thread standoffs accept M3 screws from both the front and back, so you could potentially mount the magnet feet facing forward and place them inside a house facing the glass with additional magnets on the outside. This would allow the display to be seen from the outside, otherwise, flip the feet to display inside.

Were you thinking of Adabox 017? I was referring to 016, the matrix portal, which didn't come with magnetic feet.
(Those magnetic feet in 017 were pretty darn fabulous, though!)

Oops! Yes I was thinking MagTag, sorry about that. If you want to mount the MatrixPortal display inside of glass I would use the same U-Glu squares we included in the AdaBox for affixing the LED acrylic.
