I would normally stick this in my daily links but one of the comments made me smile and it’s cool, so I thought I would share.

Theodore Watson is running what sounds like a fantastic class called[ ‘The Make Class’](http://blog.wdka.nl/make/). It’s about * “making stuff! It is also about sharing the process!”. *They make everything from Helicams to sex toys*! *Brilliant.

With all the talk about teaching innovation and creativity, this sounds like the kind of course I’d love to take.

Anyway, the project that caught my eye was the portable blue screen and he shares how on his blog and on Instructables

And the comment that made me laugh? Instrcutable member sciamannikoo offers an alternative.

  1. take a second hand laptop
  2. Install any MS system
  3. Delete few system files (with Vista you don’t even need this step)
  4. Enjoy your blue screen 😉

Thanks to FreshDV for the tip off
