If you were a consumer in the ’80s or ’90s, you probably have a large collection of software/music CD cases that you’ve been planning to get rid of. Instead of adding yet another layer of plastic to your local landfill, why not do something positive for the environment and build a green house instead?
The DSLR LCD screen once served as little more than a means to view photos you had already taken in the comfort of indoor lighting. Now you can use it as a live monitor and capture photos and video, but it still doesn’t work too well outside. With some old hotel key cards, however, you can fix that problem.
Dear Lifehacker, My Asus U36sg is a nice, light notebook with good features, but the screen is 1366 by 768 and nothing to write home about. Assuming I could afford the $150 hardware cost, I would like to try putting something like a B133HAN03 1600 by 900 screen in its place. How far out of my depth am I? Is this a non-starter and I’m totally deluded? Thanks, Screen Queen
