Usb Hacked Fan
Originally uploaded by rstrohmh.
Got lots of questions about this one at work today. I ripped a 120mm fan out of a desktop and wired it up to an old usb cable. At 5v instead of the 12v it would run on normally it's no vornado; but it's helping since the AC is out here today.

Also, first uploaded photo off my Android phone. unedited except for a small crop, not bad quality...


Edit: Hmm, except that it seems to have resized it on upload... unless I only shot it at vga quality. That will bear some inwestigation.

Edit2: Ah hah! Cropping in phone crops to the actual pixels show on the phone.
BAAAAAAD coding! *sigh*

did you check the current first? :P not that i'd expect most 120mm fans to pull 6W stock anyways, and assuming the current went down with voltage properly anyways...
