Convert An Old Hard Drive Into A Smartphone Stand, Pen Holder And More

Happen to have an old hard drive lying around that you need a project for? WonderHowTo blogger Samimy Productions shows off a way to upcycle a dead hard drive into a mobile phone stand and charger, a LED light and a secret flash drive.
