HDD platter wallet

hdd-walletDo you need a new wallet, but are hard pressed to come up with the money as there is that video card which you have been saving up for? Why not be a little bit more resourceful and delve into the wonderful world of DIY – in this case, a wallet that is made up of a couple of hard drive platters.

“I took apart a dead hard drive that I had dumpster dived last year initially for the magnets, but I could not take my eyes off of the platters. The magnet would just be trouble with my ATM card magnetic strips as well as sticking to everything else around. Using a rivet gun I was able to quickly adhere two car keys and my AAA card to the platters.”

Pretty neat, but it won’t exude the class of fine leather, that’s for sure.
