because he never used the laptops keyboard? So he took a normal laptop, and just put the screen on backwards? I still don't get it. Obviously I'm not understanding something here. which picture is the "finished" picture? or are all of them "finished"? (finished in quotes because he said he's not actually finished yet)
Like a wise man once said, "I am a very wise man."

he stated he always plugs in an external keyboard and mouse, as seen in the first picture. he did this to save room on his desk. desks at college are tiny. so, now, instead of taking up the normal space of the laptop (keyboard exposed), he can just lean it up against the wall for using just the screen.
Ok, thats what I thought at first, but the order of the pictures is what confused me. I thought the pictures of the normal laptop where the finished pictures lol. Now I got it.
I put them in that order on my blog, so I just did the same here, the first picture is it completed. I did it this way for my blog so that when it was linked to facebook and all that, it would have the "completed" product as the picture.

i got really tired of not being heard whenever i stream xbox one games with DT, since microsoft decided it was a good idea to only alow for mic support through player 1 controller while live streaming with the twitch app (cuz, ya know, nobody ever wants to stream while playing with someone *eye roll*) so, i made essentially a 1/8" 4 pole splitter. using parts i simply had laying around, hence it having rca jacks on it.
so, how it works. i have a 1/8" 4 pole to rca cord (for a/v out on the HandyGen). you plug that into the xbox one controller adapter, and the other end to my home made splitter. from there, we have 4 "headphone" jacks. 2 that split the headphone lines (the outter ones on the top) and 2 that split the microphone lines (the inner ones on the underside). this allows both of us to hear the game through our headphones, and both of us to be heard through our mics. FINALLY people will be able to hear me.
since this was just a quick mod with what i had laying around, no real casing as made. just wrapped it good in electric tape to prevent any shorts happening.
can't wait to get to use this tonight! we're gonna stream diablo iii! woop!
using parts i simply had laying around, hence it having rca jacks on it.
Otherwise you would have used a 3 pole headset jack, yeah? That's the only way I could think of to make it simpler.
yes, i'd have used 2 4 pole 1/8" jacks instead of 4 3 pole 1/8" jacks. also, i'd have not had the rca jacks at all, just cut the 4 pole 1/8" cord and wire it directly to the board. but, all 4 pole male jacks i have, are kinda meant for something else. and i didn't wanna sacrifice any of those cords (be that they are on our headphones we use or on this cable i am using for this, which is meant for a/v out for the HandyGear).
luckily, both our pc headsets came with the option to either use it as the single 4 pole 1/8" jack, or to hook on a separator adapter thing that splits it into individual 3 pole 1/8" jacks for both headphone and microphone.
i would like, one day, to house it better. but it's not gonna be anytime soon.
