    Hacking for fun and profit

    Hi all.

    Has anyone else figured out creative uses for off-the-shelf electronics?

    Current projects include:

    Hacking BT headsets to turn them into UARTs

    Modifying infrared thermometers, scales etc to add the missing USB output

    Hacking TVs to enable features such as selective backlight (ie stealth mode) and

    retrofitting LEDs to CCFL models, RGB backlight for high contrast/3D mode.

    Capacity testing/reconditioning of batteries using old PS4 hard disks as a dummy load
