We all have these kinds of old electronics lying in our basement accumulating dust and rust. Those Pentium laptops, Nokia phones, radios, desktop computers, etc. all lying there as useless remnants of times long gone. So what can you do with them now? They can’t be used anymore as their specs are outdated, and your smartphones are more powerful than all of them combined.
Well, we can’t tell you what to do with the lot, but we will teach you a cool DIY to create something amazing from your old laptop.You will need to have standard laptop tearing down tools like minute screwdrivers, etc. and an old overhead projector that you can get super cheap easily.
See this video and get the hang of the main procedure of this DIY. Make sure to follow each step thoroughly.
However, there are some technical difficulties that you need to overcome to make its functioning as smooth as possible. The first thing you need to do is to create a higher ground for the computer using a pile of books or a box. Moreover, the screen should always be facing the right side up.
You also need to handle the project very carefully. The screen needs to be connected to the laptop, and the whole arrangement is very fragile and the projected video will be very dim. So much that it can’t work without a dimly lit room. The best part of this is that you are using an old laptop for video projecting that is normally very expensive. So do try it at home if you have any old laptops lying around and enjoy your very own big screen experience!
