Weekend Project: A DIY Home Theater For About $5

OK, I know the picture of a cardboard box and the $5 price tag suggest this project is some shoddy workaround along the lines of this DIY hot tub, but I swear it’s actually a really cool tech hack that lets you turn your laptop into a projector. It’s marketed as a fun way to amp up your March Madness parties, but it would be just as cool to have some friends over, kill the lights, and host an epic movie night in your living room. [YouTube]
