Finding clever new uses for old techno-junk is part of what hacking is all about, and that doesn’t just mean internal components—old cases and enclosures can be salvaged, too. Here, mouth- and ear-pieces from a legacy telephone handset have been elegantly repurposed as a clamshell case for a voice memo device.

  1. Love that brass enclosure.

  2. I’ve done a couple of enclosures I’m proud of. First was my wooden logic probe (http://www.galacticstudios.org/wooden-super-probe/) and second was my Windows PC inside a miniature case resembling and Altair 8800 (http://www.galacticstudios.org/mini-altair-8800-pc/)

  3. Nice! We just made an enclosure from a drum module enclosure out of an NES Advantage controller…. http://weareaudiobody.com/this-is-not-what-you-think-it-is
