Let creativity make OLD COMPUTER something COOL! (3rd)

After being with your computer days and nights for years, it finally reached its destiny -- being replaced by new ones. How sad that is! It had once stored all your secrets; and now, are you going to throw it away with all your secrets? Or are you going to sell it on Ebay which equals to share all your privacy with strangers? No, the smartest idea is giving your old computer/ laptop to your creativity. You may ask how, so let us give you some ideas to begin with. 

a. Screen 
If your screen wasn't the problem that made you abandoned your computer, then let's use it!
1, make it into a movie projector(just like the one in movie theater!!)Tear your computer apart and put a projector, it is just that easy. 

2. How about a digital photo frame
How many of you guys want a digital photo frame? and How many of you guys think it is too expensive?
That was pretty sick wasn't it? what about make alive with your webcam? 

 b. Hard Drive
1.It is always nice to have an extra hard drive on your new computer/laptop!"if the hard drive is still working, you can dismount it and transform it into an external and portable hard drive for your new computer. You’ll have to invest in a USB caddy, which can be acquired cheaply through eBay, Amazon or your local hardware dealer. Be sure to get the right format and connector for your hard drive. For a laptop hard drive, you’ll need a 2.5″ IDE or SATA caddy. For a regular hard drive, generally a 3.5″ IDE or SATA caddy is in order."2. Or put it on your xbox if you have one! 

C. Speaker
1. Do you play electric guitar? Need an AMP?

2. Make your own iPod Dock!!

  1. This is another example of a great integration of your design idea with the week's lecture material.


This is a class project-- it combines information technologies to art and design, but it also related to my personal interest. So i will try my best to make it fun.
Plz leave anything that come cross your mind when you see this.
