The two projects in the book that I thought were most interesting were the Flat-screen Ant Farm and the iMac Terrarium. While I am probably far from the target audience of the book (targeted at teens, I would guess), I don’t think I can recommend the book. I’m all for recycling and saving energy but the final products just don’t look that great. It’s not surprising that using trash results in things that look like junk. Except in this case the raw material isn't a T-shirt, but the stuff we all have.

Computer hacking takes on a whole new meaning when you're 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 isn't 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 who’s obsessed with navigating the intersection of art and technology, here are 62 ingenious projects that are irresistibly geek-chic. An iMac Terrarium―how cool is that? A laptop Digital Photo Frame. The impressively 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 electronics safely―and is arranged by use, from stuff for the house, to fashion, toys, arts and crafts, items for pets, and more.

I picked this up hoping it would offer some type of "Hack" Electronic Project ideas, or even something like the old Radio Shack Science Fair projects from the electrical components - nothing of the sort. Instead it's a collection of useless projects like how to make coasters out of cables, compost bins from old scanners, or an ant farm from an old monitor. On the positive side the Author IS trying to get the reader thinking of ways to reuse "trash" and keep it from ending up in a landfill (hat's off for that), I just wish there was something of more value in the ideas.

This book is like a Martha Stewart type of book. But it may not be for everyone. It more of a craft type thing you can do with old computers and electronics. Like building a lamp table from an old scanner. Its cool if your decorating your room with "geek" appeal or a whiz kids room, but that style may not be for most people. Overall the book is nice and I like how its an imaginative book on what to do with old equipment. If you were thinking that the book is about reapplying old equipment/electronic/computer and "modernizing" them like taking an old pc and installing linux to make it modern, this is not the book. But if you like crafts, and want to try something different then its a nice book.

great idea book, with lots of creative useage for the old, tured out, non working. (or working and outdated) computer items layign aorund. Thanks to this book that I innitally purchased as bathroom reading, I now have a sanitary compost starter in my kitchen that has no oder, and it gave me even more ideas, I have made a wooden mouse from the guts of a broken plastic led one (I hate ball mice) and am almost finished converting a old computer power sully, and Tivo chasis, to a master power supply for all my USB accories, that not only looks good, but will be much more pwoer saving due to the lack of "wall warts" that will be used, (these items always draw power even if the item is not turned on! should save me a few bucks each month from my power bill, but I am goign to leave the chasis its origional color even though it is becommign a "green item! lol

worth buyign a copy of this, great idea starter!62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer: (And Other Discarded Electronics)

I work at a computer store, and I'm always taking home spare parts to craft with now. This book gives simple instructions to re-purpose old parts into fresh gifts and gadgets that are fun and whimsical.

The first few pages contain information useful for a "new to electronics" person--things like resistor color code and what to do with capacitors.

While there is a temptation to consider this a manual for electronic scavengers, I think it works on a couple of deeper levels.

First, it opens the door to electronics as an art form; you can take old parts and create something that doesn't use electricity at all. You can make things that are useful or just interesting. All things don't have to have a practical function--or be beautiful. Conversation pieces are good for--conversation-- (something we may have to work harder at as face to face communication is replaced by electronic gizmos).

Second, this book makes us think about all the good stuff that we throw away just because it gets erratic or outmoded.

To sum it up, this is a good book for the artist, for the electronic beginner or the person concerned about trashing things rather than finding a new purpose.

This is a good book for 'makers' who like to dismantle older technology and make something different out of it. A bit dated - practically impossible not to be in this field - but the projects are fun and well written.

Wasn't really impressed, but for others, these are good ideas
Not worth the paper it was printed on.
