One of the best sites for random mods is KipKay.com. I periodically check out his site to see what that guy is up to, and many times I have put his videos here on Bauer-Power. Kip is a real life MacGyver who makes really cool things out of common household items. This particular project is no different.
In this video, Kip shows us what we need to do to take an old DVD drive, or CD drive and turn it into a really cool stash box that can hold spare cash, SD cards or as he said “spare catnip” for his cat (Yeah right). Anyway, he guts his DVD drive, then re-wires it with a batter so pushing the front button opens and closes it as it would if it were installed in a desktop PC.
Don’t take my word for it though, check it out:
Pretty neat right? Sure, maybe it isn’t all that practical, but if you wanted to try it out, it will give you something to do.
