I’m not sure why this remote control for a UFO toy needed to go inside a mint tin, but a lot of folks learn about electronics from taking them apart and putting them in new and interesting enclosures, so – why not… Wizworm writes – “I’ve hacked the 49mhz remote control of a cheap “UFO” toy, now the remote fits inside an altoids can. mmmmm wintergreen :)”Link.

    I wouldn’t call this a “Hack”, but more of a Mod. You modified something to fit into something else.

    Very clever!

    I suspect the “why” is that if you put something electronic in an Altoids tin, it gets posted on MAKE:Blog.
