@ li Tan.  I have an old PC and I have added Genesis and super nintendo emulators. I love it.  I bought a retro, supernintendo game controller.  It feels like i'm back in the 90s.

Re: DIY for Higher Functionality
This is a very good post. Not only old desktop, but also old laptop can be of some use - for example, why not use it to be an emulator for old Sega game box?

Re: DIY for Higher Functionality
the most interesting project was the DIY computer. Who doesn't have an old computer lying around that needs to be put into some good use.  I was thinking since it is Chritsmas a lighting for a nativity scene wouldn't be so bad as well.

How about projects that you'd like to see me talk about here at InformationWeek?
How about an inexpensive 120 VAC or 220VAC motor controller, ala VFD. All that is needed is adjustable speed.

DIY for Higher Functionality
The DIY Augmented Reality Laser Cutter is great for businesses that would like to brand and customize their products.

I have been thinking to utilize the Arduino to create a MPPT solar charge controller. As the market develops new sensors and charging algorithms, the Arduino would enable upgradability to existing hardware. And, if the sensors already exist but, its price is too high for its functionality for instance, digital specific gravity sensors have a higher price than an Arduino at the moment then, the user could wait for economics to push the price down of the sensors before including it into their environment.
