Mac + Magnadoodle = Macnadoodle

by Paul Strauss

What do you do when you drop your old laptop on the ground and break it? If you said “bring it to the Geek Squad” or “throw it in the dumpster”, you’re dead wrong. At least that’s the case if you’re the guy who took his recently trashed iBook G3, and turned it into a Magnadoodle (sorta).

When modder leadoffdouble dropped his old iBook G3 on the floor and busted its CD-ROM drive, he decided to take his freshly squozen Apple and make himself some tangy Apple-ade.

While he did manage to cram the iBook’s circuitry and LCD screen into the Magnadoodle’s case, there was no room for a keyboard or trackball, so an external one needs to be connected to actually use the computer. What this thing really needs is a touchscreen, which would eliminate the need for such pesky appendages. Plus, you could actually use it just like a Magnadoodle, complete with stylus.

Wanna take a stab at building your own Macnadoodle? Head on over to MacMod and check out the full worklog.

Of course, if you don’t feel like busting your laptop open, you could just go for an Etch-a-Sketch laptop sleeve instead.
