Crafting A Clock From A Laptop Motherboard - Proof of Concept

After stripping a laptop for parts, all that was left was the non-working motherboard.  Normally this would end up in the WEEE pile ready to go off for recycling, but today I decided to try something out...

Using an old blank CD that I had lying around I (very quickly) hot-glue-gunned 12 function keys from a non-working laptop keyboard to it and then nicked the clock mechanism from another clock and hey-presto!  An upcycled motherboard clock.

The next time I have a non-working laptop I will know what to do - I'll take a bit more care the next time as this one is purely proof-of-concept so was a bit rushed hence the messy glue all over the place...
