Sad child comes to me with his stuffed Gekko, one eye has broken off. We can rebuild him, we have the technology,...
Step 1: Make the Eye
We took the broken eye and a wood screw. We drilled a hole in the eye and another smaller hole into the plastic stump on the head.
As we were drilling the hole into the back of the eye we realized that if we drilled deep enough we would clear through the black "pupil" plastic and down to the clear cornea.
We used a solvent to clarify the inside of the drill hole, and after that the wood screw was visible through the eye (cooool, says the son).
Step 2: Cyborg Gekko
So then we screwed the new eye into the ocular stump.
Now the boy wants to know if there are other computer parts that we can attach to make it MORE BORG.
Yes, yes there are.
