Introduction: Fancy Keychain From an Obsolete PC RAM

About: I am a just a bunch of semi useful DNA...

Fancy keychain made in 60 seconds!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, cylons, geeks and... whatever...
I'll show you how to make a Fancy keychain from an obsolete or defective PC RAM

You will need:
1. Obsolete or defective piece of PC RAM - I used 16 MB PC EDO RAM(My piece of 16 MB RAM compared to nowdays RAM is nothing else than a sclerosis :)))) );
2. Key ring;
3. Keys.

It is very easy to assemble it:

1. Break the RAM into two equal pieces(small notch is the center) with your hands or cut it with a small hack-saw.
2. Thread the keyring into the hole of the RAM.
3. Thread your keys into the keyring.

Voala! You have a fancy keyring! Congratulations!
The second piece of RAM can be made into another keyring for your roommate, girlfriend, boyfriend... robot... etc.

Disclaimer: No robots were harmed during the creation of this keychain!!!

WARNING!!!:
1. Before making this keychain make sure that the PC RAM is a lead-free RoHS compliant component! Your pocket can get warm and moist from sweat, which would get some lead transfered into your skin.
2. The PC RAM in some cases may have sharp edges (component leads, edges of the board), I'd recommend sanding/grinding the sharp points!

    You could use SO-DIMM ram too, no need to break anything as it's already the perfect size :) I like.

    I always enjoy these 'geeky' gifts. One piece of input - you might want to make sure it's a lead-free RoHS component. Your pocket can get warm and moist from sweat, which would get some lead to transfer. Also, for anyone who has worked with internal components - they can have sharp edges (component leads, edges of the board), I'd recommend sanding/grinding sharp points, maybe even adding (silver) solder. Very fancy, though.

    I don't think people are dumb enough to put non RoHS and sharp objects in their pockets... but... thank you for your input, it will be taken into consideration and I will add a warning about theese things into my instructable. :))
