hi, as you can See from the Topic name, i have bought a lot of stuff and i don’t know what to use them on...
Here is a list of what i bought:
3x old Hard Drives.
2x old phones with batteries and chargers.
One battery is 4,5V Ni-Cd and the other is a Li-Ion 7,2V
I don’t know the mAh
7x PC mice
1x baby call (1 way radio)
7x gearmotors (none of them is the same, 3 of them are from CD Rom's so they are still moving a thing up and down, see pics when they come )
1x gearmotor pair (two alike gearmotors)
1x dual gearmotor case with treads (from old toy)
2x really small pagermotors from old cell phones.
2x motors, one is from a camera and the other is from a CD player.
1x wireless doorbell
1x answering machine with a 5+ voltage regulator and a LM386, and it has a chip called ARAM 4MX4-GD
1x Toy RC car without the RC board, only the steering and the main motor (the guts serve a better purpose, a RC laser pointer!)
1x old hard drive motor (it only have 3 wires going out so i think i its the same type as brushless motors used in RC cars... correct me if I’m wrong)
1x Nintendo 64 controller.
1x Mackintosh motherboard from 1987, it has some weird chips on it.
1x Mackintosh Power supply that goes with the motherboard.
1x IR Stereo Transmitter (i don’t have the receiver)
3x OLD SiliconGraphics webcameras, i think they are from 1993-95, they have the weirdest connector I’ve ever seen. its a 70 pin thing, but when i opened one of them it was only 24 pins leading out, so maybe they ain't that hard to hack.
wow, that was a long list, glad i only paid 10 bucks for it
well, now to my problem; what should i do with all of it, i know i can like take out the components and use them, but i wanna use the stuff as they are... or hack them.
the only thing i could come up with was to make a Herbie ( photovore ) but i don’t wanna do that, so if anyone got any ideas for how can use all my stuff i will be very interested in hearing your ideas
and if you come up with an idea but i miss a part or a thing, just tell me, i just might have it in my room, or if it is a really good idea i will buy the part. your ideas don’t have to use all the parts, you might just use one or two things.
please come with ideas, i beg you.
I’ll post pics as soon as i get my camera back from the repair guy...
