DIY HACK – How to build your own laptop!

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.

DIY HACK – “Propeller Clock” Mechanically Scanned LED Clock

http://zedomax.com/image/200612/cool-pov.jpg

Cool propeller clock you can make!

How this clock works: A motor spins the “propeller”, and a small microprocessor keeps track of time and changes the pattern on seven LEDs with exact timing to simulate a 7 by 30 array of LEDs. It is an illusion, but it works nicely.

If you want to build this clock, you will need a few things, including: Skill with motors and mechanical things. Prior electronic experience. A dead VCR or floppy drive or other source of a suitable
