Picture of Ram/Pcboard Keychain
This is a key chain made of ram. In the thinkgeek catalog they had one for like 20 bucks. When you add shipping, its pretty steep for a keychain. And it doesn't even work. The one we are making can still work. Very cheap,easy and a perfect last minute gift.Kids are facinated by them.

Oddly enough these ram sticks are pretty good at cutting open boxes, probably could do for a sharpening then I wonder what it's capable of and how sharp it would stay.

Here is one i made for my girlfriend as a birthday gift. I drilled two holes, bent up a paper clip then soldered the paper clip ends together so they wouldn't catch or come undone.
I'm amazed people like us that would do this type of thing can actually get a girlfriend!
lmao:P <')))>{ ( i <3 code fish:P)
You do make a good point.

I gave this a go too. To be fair, I think you could make these out of pretty much any part of a motherboard. Another suggestion I keep hearing from girls is the same thing but turned into earrings which is almost exactly the same process.

I made one, but I didn't like how big it is on my keychain, so I cut my stick in half. Still looks cool and is a lot easier to handle.
good idea, SODIMM is better but we don't all have old laptops with it.

I did this a few years ago with an old stick of ram out of an old Mac Quadra. I also mount old Pentiums with a a little magnet to make fridge magnets. Geeky fun.

Put a hole in anything and put a key chain on it, and tada, a key chain.
The RAM SIMM already has a hole. So much the easier! I think this is a lot more productive than making a comb out of it. :)
