New Notepaad

So I got hold of the motherboard circuit from an old keyboard and used it to modify a spiral writing pad last night.

Looks decent eh?
writing pad again
Yes, that is indeed a mother board / circuit. The yellow bit of paper is a dry-cleaners bill which I have kept tucked in that instead of in my bulging wallet - it also shows off the pocket better on camera. This also makes the notepad waterproof.

The second snap shows the notepad resting on my keyboard with a pen inside. The actual pages are a nice bright blue, on which blue ink looks almost-black.

I will soon try to make more versions now that this experiment has turned out decent. After all, lack of a smartphone means I'm back to paper and pen - but not without a little circuitry!

Should'nt the cover be stiff?
Looks like a regular paper cover..perhaps you should back it with stiff cardboard (old visiting cards would do).

Re: Should'nt the cover be stiff?
no, its plastic, and malleable. so not gonna back it with cardboard. plus its already stuck on the notepad - and acts as a pocket for bits of paper.
I guess the snaps make it look like paper, but physically its got small holes in it too (for the screws) - which u cant see in the snap.

things flauntable!
now that looks like a notepad which was conceived with raison d'atre of " FLAUNT". Like Achiles was born to kill. :D
nice way to flaunt on the keyboard ;)
Do u have pin up boards on the partitions of your desk? then u can make another hangup pouch of pcb to keep ur notepad in full view ;)

Re: things flauntable!
A PCB hold-it-all-pouch sounds amazing! ^____^

Pretty neat.
I would never have guessed the origins of the sheet :D But the circuit imagery gives it a very “techie” look.

Re: Pretty neat.
:D yeah - geeky look was aspired at!
