    I wish we could find a better way to recycle old technology. Probably tons of probably working chips still out there. -- Anyway, very cool pendant necklace. You should see if you can find a way to make a stand for it with a circuit that will spin the rotor.while it's on the stand.

    using a smaller rotor and parts from the electric motor casing, on the back half of the pendant , plus a couple of button cells as well, you can make it spin.

    with a back stainless plate, from an old timex or a size compatible wrist watch, protecting the moving parts, batt. and most important, YOUR SKIN.

    thats awesome... sigh... that was my first GPU too... so many memories

    Thanks Dan!
