Well, I think I shorted my iPod mini's battery. So I decided to take it apart, remove the battery, and see what could be done. Then I broke a ribbon cable. Whoops.

5 minutes later, my mini had become a coin bank. =]

If you plan on doing this to a broken mini, I found this article to be quite helpful. I decided to salvage the microdrive/hard drive, seeing as how I could still use it; and I threw the rest of the stuff into a shoe box somewhere in my closet... or is it in a drawer...? Hmm...

Anyway, the rest is pretty much self-explanatory.

Good luck and have fun!
Creative, but I hate the idea of Wrecking a something a little expensive
haha, wow, that's a really cool idea :-) Kudos to you, sir
This is cool but I found something similar to this in a Crutchfield magazine. Anyways I LOVE Pink Floyd!!!!
i like this idea, it works great. its a shame the top and bottom plastic isnt the same shape, then you could have the slit on the top!
i had a funny thought. I was about to say you could paint over the screen and use it to hide valuables, but then i realized its and ipod so it would get stolen anyways.
The bottom portion works great for sticking the cents in!
Indeed it does =]<br/>
bow chika wow wow orrrr.... blarg chicka honk honk
