How to turn an Amiga A500 into a lamp. WTF?

http://geektechnique.org/projectlab/...00-into-a-lamp

It's an old post but I'd never seen it before. Might make your heart warm.

I think that you should not destroy your Amiga like this. This i is a little bit stupid. You should buy an new Ferrari and build a dog house.
Er, quite.

That looks rather good, i might do something similar... i already have a arcade PCB as decoration on the wall (Psycho-Nics Oscar) maybe i should turn that into a lamp, too bad it's a bit dark (as most Data East PCB's).

Whahaa..

I like the lamp somehow... But it would be hard to keep it clean from dust. And my girlfriend would find it super ugly I guess.

His polaroid webcam hack is also interesting....
