Right, similar to the 'Your latest purchase' thread:http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,50154.0.htmlWhat's your latest scrounged/acquired product.Mine is a broken NEC projector (VT470). It's been hit with a stick or something... I think the bulb is ok (pretty sure where I got it from tried it with a new one before they chucked it - it's got one in it) and I'm hoping it will be an easy fix. Gonna do the zenon/halogen headlight bulb mod if I get it working fine - not gonna pay a few hundred for a new bulb.I have a second one in my sights too which I might get in a few weeks I got a hot plate a few months back for SMD soldering (just about to get some new thermal fuses to make it safe again).You guys must have got some cool stuff for free recently.
Why not try some powerful LEDs instead? I am totally going to try that when the expensive xenon bulb in mine dies
