Ehh, I am new to this world, I didn't know that component harvesting was called hacking. Thanks for pointing me to the existing board.
It's not - the term "hacking" (in a broad
sense, to cover hardware and software - note that there are as many definitions of "hacking" as there are for the term "robot") could be considered "the re-purposing of a system or component towards a different, and quite possibly unrelated (and/or typically unanticipated by the designer) purpose".
Component harvesting just seems to fall best into the sub-forum of "Device Hacking" because its about (according to tag-line) "looking into existing technologies, reappropiation of devices, tricks of the trade"; the "reappropiation of devices" could in effect mean an entire electronic design, a sub-component, or an individual component...
