Introduction: H@CK Your T-Shirt!

Picture of H@CK Your T-Shirt!

YES! FINALLY! A REAL T-Shirt - H4CKZ0R style!

Slap on your motherboard, upgrade the RAM, throw a few random doo-dads on, and you're good to go to the geek convention! ;-)

Step 1: Materials!

Picture of Materials!
  • A t-shirt
  • A needle and thread
  • A motherboard (I salvaged mine from an old PC)
  • Random internal PC parts (optional; salvaged)

  • A drill & 1/16 drill bit
  • Scissors
  • Permanent marker (optional)

Step 2: Mr. DRILL!

Time to get out our friend, MR. DRILL!!!

Using the drill and a 1/16 drill bit, drill holes in the motherboard. I drilled mine roughly an inch apart, about 3 cm. Make sure to avoid anything that could be in your path of destruction; either weave around or adapt to any obstacles somehow ;]

Step 3: Sew!

Sew what??

*sigh*... sorry...

Sew the motherboard to your shirt. That's what the holes are for, not just some random reason.

This is a bit trickier than it sounds, though. You'll need to make sure you don't sew the shirt together! Also, it's a bit tricky keeping the motherboard and shirt all aligned. I found this out the hard way, I had to go back and re-do a section! Fortunately, I realized it pretty quickly and did not have to much work to make up for it.

Step 4: H@CK Time!

Now it's time to add random PC parts! All I did was throw on a few random parts and some IDE cables, but you can go all out and throw in the whole thing, complete with HDD and a monitor! Just make sure to boot the T-Shirt edition of Linux ;]

And who says you can't hack the aesthetics of your new geek-wear?? Go crazy with that marker, d00d! Write, draw, whatever - just make itUBER FLIPPIN' PWN-ALICIOUS!!!

With that all said, go out there and do this, d00d!!!

Good luck and have fun!(And vote for me if you liked it!)

if you wear this shirt to an airport they give u a free ride to a police station.

Doesn't computer parts have lead and parts that contain mercury? That could be very bad for the wearer of this shirt o_O

Wash separately - do not tumble dry...

Derin (author)Patrik2008-06-27

do not machine wash-30oC optimal temperature-do not dunk in water-do not tumble dry-do not iron

Labot2001 (author)randofo2008-03-29


Oh, you're apt to get some weird looks if you go walking around wearing this as it is, but in Boston...
