Introduction: Processor Hairbrush!

Picture of Processor Hairbrush!

i came up with this idea after finding a discarded computer and striping away all of its components then i came across its processor and kept it away for awhile. then after getting an old computer to modify i dug out the components again but had no use for the processor i looked at the pins the bam! i had teh idea for a processor hairbrush!

Step 1: What You Will Need...

Picture of What You Will Need...

1.a processor (mine was and intel pentium).

2.scrap metal (mine was from the slots at the back where i put in the sound card from the pc i found).

3.adhesive-anything that will bond meta to processor stuff.

Step 2: Attach the Metal to the Processor!

just glue the processor to the metal

Step 3: Wait for Glue to Dry Then Use!

you will find this brush very comfortable to use and you can brush it in any direction the teeth of the processor wont bend to much either, they are suprisingly strong

yay i'm not the only crazy person!!! i keep my "hairbrush" in my wallet...

Dude... WTF? you could give more uses to that prosesor than A HAIR BRUSH! and the teeth are resilient because they are an alloy of gold...

whats funny, is i actually tried this. it works. llol, although, make sure you remove the thermal compound first if you dont want grey hair early...

 I would be worried about the lead and other toxic chemicals brushing in to my hair and skin, plus the pins would be sharp and cut into me.

Apparently, different kinds of hairbrush suit different kinds of hair (unfortunately I am not in much of a position to comment). What kind of hair would this brush suit? It kind of reminds me of a brush for grooming short-haired pets, or combing the fleece from a sheep (although you need two for that).

It works awesomely on cats. ;)

bedbugg2 (author)Kiteman2007-10-28

i have short hair and it worked brilliantly for me, i gave it to another member of my family with long hair and they really liked it too. so i think it would work for either long or short, and because the pins are so close together it gives a realy smooth and even brush

don't push down with the brush too hard our you may become a computer controlled robot...

ReCreate (author)Modarius2009-11-05

No actually, you can use the processor to process stuff, if you are thinking too hard you can make the processor think for you ;)

twenglish1 (author)shurry2008-02-09

ReCreate (author)twenglish12009-02-07

500 DOLLARS! if it works

you couldn't get 500 dollars for a pentium 1

ReCreate (author)matstermind2009-11-05

want me to prove you wrong? *gets time machine and camera*

matstermind (author)ReCreate2009-11-05

ya i know like 50 years ago,

ReCreate (author)matstermind2009-11-05

50 years ago? it would have been useless at that time, more like 15 years ago or 20

i found a big box of 486 processors in my garage, finally something to do with em.

dark sponge (author)Yerboogieman2009-02-27

Build a supercomputer?

Yerboogieman (author)dark sponge2009-02-27

Even though 486's make great dedicated servers, no.

dark sponge (author)Yerboogieman2009-02-27

Oh I though you meant the box had 486 processors in it...

Yerboogieman (author)dark sponge2009-02-28

Yep, that's what i meant box had 486 processors in it.

ReCreate (author)Yerboogieman2009-11-05

The count 486 or the arcitecture 486?

Shane1163 (author)Yerboogieman2009-03-01

omg lucky! you can sell them on ebay! some of those you can get about a buck a piece or around $60 per pound.. depending on gold price and demand!

jonrb (author)2009-08-28

This thing would not survive my hair lol.

jonrb (author)jonrb2009-08-28

Very good idea though.

AuzzieGuy42 (author)2009-08-18

Haha, try making one with a LGA type processor instead of a PGA.

PsiGuy (author)2009-07-19

Haha :) makes a great beard comb :) been using one of these for years :)

devicemodder (author)2009-06-29

I made one with a p4 processor socket 478

baalkorn (author)2009-03-17

great idea... but long time ago. I'm tried this idea too and it hurts dude!!! XD you most be careful when use it!

carlos-felo (author)2009-03-04

It's great!

kronflux (author)2009-02-27

I'm actually impressed with this. I had an old celeron processor, and just took it out of its anti-static bag.. brushed my hair.. this would be perfect if it had more pins(in the middle) and maybe slightly longer. otherwise, it does actually feel really good, and it results in very finely brushed hair.

bedbugg2 (author)kronflux2009-03-02

it does!, and it also works as a very good brush for pets, and when you use it when you've just had a shower its even better!

ReCreate (author)2009-02-07

next time,maybe put windows 3.1 on it...and do something with it heh "gold plated hair brush"

frickelkram (author)2007-10-30

Hey! great! Now I know what to do with all the DX486 ... Thank you for that!

randofo (author)2007-10-28

The handle will cut your hand and the brush will only really be of any use if you are bald... and if you are bald, then why would you need a brush?

bedbugg2 (author)randofo2007-10-29

no...the handle was made from a slot at the back of the computer where i installed a new sound card and it wasnt sharp, and i have short hair but im not bald and it works perfectly for me

C-h-a-v-e-z (author)2007-10-28

I am glad that knew pentium processors socket lga775 have no pins, this way no body in the future will make a hair brush out of them. being said that, I guess it could be a decent brush for pets.

!Andrew_Modder! (author)2007-10-28

this has been done a couple of times b4.

bedbugg2 (author)!Andrew_Modder!2007-10-28

yeah it could have been but it wasnt on instructables

trebuchet03 (author)bedbugg22007-10-28

Yes, it is -- but that's fine :D There's nothing wrong with different instructables on the same topic :)

bedbugg2 (author)trebuchet032007-10-28

ah yeah, i found it a couple of mins ago, i entered it into the mash up competition :)

whatsisface (author)2007-10-28

Congrats! You now have a gold-plated hairbrush!

JakeTobak (author)2007-10-28

I've seen this done a couple times before, but I do think that the slot cover handle was a nice touch.
