I was just thinking of this while readind another instructable by fungus amungus about how to make a USB Hub Monster. <-(link to it)
While I was reading it, it sounded like a good idea at the time to put my 4-Port Usb hub into a monster can, and dress it up, well im currently working on a good way to dress it up, but i need more stability.
This is what i got so far and how to make it. I will try to update on the progress.2
Step 1: Items Needed
Tape- I recomend black eletrical, because it blends in w/ the can (not shown, im out of tape)
1-USB hub (as big as you want just not bigger then the can itself)
some kinda cutting impulment (not shown)
something to fill the can with for a snugg fit (i used paper towls)
maby some strong wire like 9 gauge
USB Accesorys( i have a guitar hero wireless remote reciever w/ 2 ports i used)
Step 2: Open and Fill
not hard right?
realy its not. its Just that you cant turn the handle to slice it open.
you got to cut a little at a time by prying it like.
(if you dont want to do it this way try scoring the rim with a exacto-blade. i didn't try but it might be easier )
then fill with paper towles, or something more legit, untill you got the basic tallness of where you want your hub.
Step 3: Cut the Port's Area and Glue
add accesorys- and tape wire to the accesorys wire so it has a nice possision to it .
Step 4: My Basic Design
And i want to see yours!!
if you decide to dress yours up, share your design with the world!
