This is a question DIY Techno-hacks

Old hard drive platters make wonderfully good drinks coasters - they look dead smart and expensive and you've stopped people reading your old data into the bargain.

Have you taped all your remotes together, peep-show-style? Have you wired your doorbell to the toilet? What enterprising DIY have you done with technology?

Extra points for using sellotape rather than solder.

I used to have a similar system
lightbulb, attached to PIR sensor at the top of the stairs, with optional buzzer for added attention-gettage.

Unfortunately, the one time it could have been useful, the buzzer wasn't on, and I was too busy concentrating on the girl with her head bobbing up and down in my lap to pay much attention to the lightbulb. My brother walked in and immediately walked out again.
