Old Cell Phones == treasure;

I guess many people don't realize before dumping their old phones that they are also throwing away a treasure trove of micro hardware that can be extracted and used in multiple DIY projects. I don't blame them as most people don't even know how does the vibration in their phones work.

So recently while going through some old 2006< cellphones, I decided to salvage such components. I recovered some really neat gems:
  • Micromotors [Both types: External and Sealed]
  • Mics
  • Speakers
  • 2MP camera modules
  • LCDs [Color 64K & 256K 160ppi & B/W 100ppi]
  • Micro DC-in female jacks
Now to think of some things I could do with them!?? Bristlebots anyone ;-)
