Thread: Does dead monitors go to heaven or trees?

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Does dead monitors go to heaven or trees?

    In the past when LCD was still expensive I dealt a lot with CRT monitors. After accumulating a few "not economically repairable" a.k.a write-off monitors I decided to get creative with them. Rather than smashing up these poor defenseless peripherals I thought that they should RIP. Take one peppertree, a lot of rope and a couple of dead screens and this is what you get.


    Left is a Cornerstone 20" monochrome, top middle is a Mecer 14" colour VGA and right is 7" monochrome LCD


    Right is a 12" IBM amber


    Left is a Cornerstone 20" monochrome and center is a Mecer 14" colour VGA


    Top is a Mecer 14" monochrome and bottom is a Mecer 14" color VGA


    Xyst 14" colour SVGA


    Cornerstone 19" monochrome tube from a DualPage 120 monitor

    Anyone else has "weird" ways of dealing with defunct hardware ? (Like blending it )

    Does it, or does it arent. That are being the questions...

    Now just add signs to each of them saying "Shot number 1", "Shot number 2" and get a fake skeleton hanging as well. You will never be burgled. But your neighbours will know you're a geek...

    Yoh. Knock the glass out, and put candles inside for a spooky tree.
