Here’s a cool DIY on how to build your own laptop using a microcontroller and an LCD. Well we should really call it, “MCU Laptop” but it’s a great exercise for anyone learning computer hardware.

Ever thought to yourself, “Hey, I could probably build my own computer if I really tried.” Or maybe, “Man, I really need a laptop with an embarrassingly low-resolution display, a processor that goes at 256 Instructions/sec, and I’ve only got $50 to spend!” Well, that’s how I got here! It took me about 4 months to complete, with a number of pauses when school and life intervened, but I’m now mostly finished with my first real DIY project.
