Fan Modifications!


Hi there fellow makers,

I’ve recently been clearing my garage out and came across this old desk fan from the 60s. I’ve butchered the internals to use for a dust extractor, and now I’m left with this lovely old-style plastic casing;

Granted, it’s a little yellowed over time, needs a wash and a new wooden base, but the general aesthetics are still nice.

I’d like to make it a bit smarter by adding some modern Pi-nology to it, but I’ve been a bit indecisive as to what I want to make out of it. I was wondering if you people might have some ideas?

  • Another fan?
  • A Pan-Tilt Hat inspired robotic assistant?
  • An awesome looking desk lamp?
  • A desk mounted clock?

I really haven’t got many ideas, so if you have any more than this feel free to enlighten me!
