Giving Life to Old Computer Hardware
The other day I was trying to come up with ideas on how to use some of the old computer hardware I have laying around at home. I searched the web over and over for computer hardware decor and similar keywords, and finally after a lot of searching I started to find some cool ideas (which I'll be showing here).
1- Floppy notes
This is actually pretty cool. Some companies actually sell this (between 2-10 US) on the net. But I think everyone has a few old floppies at home that have no use.
2- Floppy pencil holder
Another good idea for floppies. This is also being sold on the net (or you can easily make your own).
3- Hard Drive clock
No need to say much. This is a fully functional clock installed on an old HD. You can get instructions from here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Hard-drive-platter-clock./
There are many more ideas that I have not had a chance of trying, but I'm including a link with all my findings here if you want to dig a bit further.
And here are more links for my preferred ones:
- Really amazing LED clock
- Bag made with floppy disks
