..but only if you find out!But I wanna see inside anyway!Inside Electric Stuff

Back to Mike's Electric Stuff

Ever been curious about what's inside that latest piece of high-tech electronic stuff you just bought, but been too afraid to venture inside?  Ever taken something apart but not been able to put it back together again?  Well now here's your chance to look inside stuff from the comfort of your own PC without invalidating your warranty!

I've always been fascinated by what makes things work, and I simply cannot bear not to know what's inside any high-tech gadget. Fortunately I've also got pretty good at putting stuff back together again so it works again afterwards! I thought other less fearless people would be interested, so I decided that from now on I'll take pictures of the insides of everything I dismantle and put them on the net.
More stuff will be added to this page as and when I acquire it, or get time to re-dismantle stuff I've already got.
This area is dedicated to stuff that's not meant to be taken apart - everyones seen inside a PC, that's boring!

Stuff I've taken to bits
(and managed to put back together again, honest!).

Teardown videos on Youtube - new stuff will probably be added here as it's easier....
