Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
You are going to need:
* Broken IPod (preferably nano)
* Working USB Memory Stick
* Small Screwdriver
* Hot Glue Gun
Step 2: Disassemble Ipod
Pretty straight forward just get rid of all the insides....
your going to need some small screwdrivers once you get to the inside, they help with popping the side off as well.
Note: I took one of the layers out of the LCD screen to put over the plastic just for a cool mirrored effect... this is not needed but the LCD screen must be removed
Step 3: Disassemble USB Stick
This might be rather tricky depending on what kind of usb stick you have but all you want is the inside part shown in the pictures below
Step 4: Glue the USB Into the Case
Take your usb guts and glue them into the bottom of the ipod through the connector hole, under some circumstances you may need to grind away some metal off the IPod to allow the usb to stick out.
Step 5: Put the IPod Back Together
Pop it back on there and your done!
