I have a really old slim PS2, which I’ve not been using for a long time and I don’t want to play games on it anymore. What are the other things that I could use it for or turn it into?
Something a little more geeky you could do with it is set it up as a local server to store all of your music and videos so you can play them on any computer connected. Its quite a bit more difficult than selling it or taking the parts but if your in the mood for a project it can be quite useful.
Take out the USB Female ports, solder them together to make a useful Male to Male for using your phone to browse a usb stick by plugging the data cable into one end of the DIY adapter, and the data stick in the other.
Take out the magnets in the optical assembly, they are really powerful, I used two in a project on Instructables.
I took the fan out, cut open a USB cable and soldered the red and black wires to the fan, and put it into a wooden laptop stand I made, custom laptop cooling exactly where it is needed. Under load I got the CPU to 45C max and at idle down to 23C!
Ooops, misread, mine was a phat one. Sorry.
I will take of you then if you are giving it away I will pay postage pm me.
Okay then,giving it away i will be.
Well, you can give it to me...? (^_~)
Try to fit a media pc in there.
Someone would definitely buy it I'm sure, or take the time find old PS2 titles you didn't own. Or build a death laser lol
Set it up as a Linux Server?
Make an unfortunate kid happy. :)
sell it on ebay through bidding
Try to donate it at the gadget museum.
If I were you, I would open it, get every single Goddamn machinery inside it, and create a master piece by sticking them together on a big wall hanging.
Never mind, 'cause thats what I'd do, I did that to my HDD
And it rox!!!
A paper weight. Or you could give it away to a kid who's family can't afford such things.
Or just get Smackdown vs. Raw and play it :P
You can watch movies...
Or you can sell it, collect some money, and buy a PS3! :D
You could use it to watch movies.
Use the parts that are inside.
