Wood Carved Computer Case I am new to case modding but thought I would give it a go. Instead of using real wood, I am using MDF which you can usually buy from your hardware store. I also want to thank Thermaltake for sponsoring me with a awesome PSU (power supply unit)Day 1 I am using the metal frame of an old case I have, and plan to fix the MDF to the frame (haven't quite worked out the details of that yet).

DIY Interactive Multitouch Display Click to view Touch screens are all the rage right now, so it's no surprise that there's a large DIY movement to accompany their popularity.
The enterprising mind of 17 year old Luis Cruz has built a low cost, eye-controlled Human-Computer Interface (HCI). Eye controlled devices are available for around $10,000, making the technology much too expensive. This version, which you can fund via Kickstarter, is just $300 which makes it far more affordable. An inexpensive pair of glasses houses electrodes which measure tiny electrical signals generated by the eyes. These signals are then converted into horizontal and vertical movements, allowing the user to select letters on a screen. Eye-Controlled Computer for $300
a semantical argument, i'm sure, but this article does not really talk about building a computer from scratch, but rather from components. when i was a kid my dad and i sort of built a tv "from scratch" but in reality all we did was collect thousands of bits and some solder. built the case from particle board and white formica too.. we built each circuit board up from the individual parts... i honestly doubt anyone here would have the patience to try that with a computer, but kudos to whomever might be so inclined... 8/08/11 3:18pm
Turn a Broken Down Laptop into a Desktop PC-inside-a-Keyboard @wild7s: I was about to say the same thing, however, I would go one step further. Take the laptop, mount it upside down under a new, cheap, desk. Remove the internal DVD drive and mount it using a cable, or if not possible, buy a cheap USB version, through the facia at the front edge of the desk. Buy extension cords and a cheap USB hub and mount the connectors to an accessible part on the back of the desk, tidy all the cables up using raceways, velcro ties, staples, or whatever to the bottom of the desk. And add a nicely sized monitor, full keyboard and mouse to the configuration. As soon as my wife's laptop hinges die (it's a Dell, and in my experience, this happens) I will have to do this project and share the pictures.

Microsoft Windows is a very easy operating system to use, and the latest versions certainly have taken security seriously. However there are still many people who don’t know enough about their computers to use them properly. Words like “CPU,” “hard drive,” and “RAM” are commonplace for tech-savvy people, but the average person isn’t as familiar with the concepts and easily falls victims to scammy gimmicks and expensive computer repairs. If you’re not so literate with computers, here’s four things you should know that might help you in the long run. In most cases, you’d probably land on a pop-up advertisement promising that your computer will run much faster after you try out their software. 4 Things Computer-illiterate Users Should Know When Running Windows
