Any ideas for an inexpensive computer controller for a mad scientist? Answered


I was thinking of a "mad scientist" type of display that might include a keyboard and monitor  to control various aspects.  I was thinking maybe an old computer would do it - possibly tied to arduinos.  Any ideas for a relatively inexpensive solution?

servos moving body parts, lights, maybe a tesla coil, I'm not sure what I will have resources to build this year or next.

Hmm, a panel of various knobs and switches could be assembled out of "junk". But you'd want a specific something to control before you start.

You are describing something that a slightly irate geek would possess. For the real Mad Scientist look, you need a few items like of THIS nature.
