Computer hacking takes on a whole new meaning when youre going at it with a screwdriver and hammer: Announcing the most wildly inventive, eco-friendly craft book on repurposing everyday objects since Generation T. Except in this case the raw material isnt a T-shirt, but the stuff we all have lying around and have no idea what to do with, or even how to get rid of properly--your old cell phone, a broken printer, irredeemable iPod, busted digital camera, mysterious thatches of cables and wires, orphaned keyboards, and of course, those dead PCs and laptops. Created by a Parsons design graduate whos obsessed with navigating the intersection of art and technology, here are 62 ingenious projects that are irresistibly geek-chic. An iMac Terrrarium--how cool is that? A laptop Digital Photo Frame. The impresively green Scanner Compost Bin. Plus a power strip Bird Feeder, Walkman Soap Dish, My First Squiggle Bot, Qwerty Hair Tie, Flat-screen Ant Farm. Each project has complete, step-by-step instructions, is rated by difficulty--in a thorough first chapter the author covers all the tools and skills needed to take apart electonics safely--and is arranged by use, from stuff for the house, to fashion, toys, arts and crafts, items for pets, and more. With a full-color insert showing the finished projects.nbsp; nbsp
