If your electronics have seen better days, but you're not quite ready to part with them — repurposing them is a great option to explore. You'd really be surprised at just how many things our old tech can be used for in modern times.

Look! Joysticks Repurposed as Coat Hangers is one of the coolest examples we've seen of repurposing old tech. This once useful item has been repurposed into an even more useful body — we want one of our own!

Computer Key Jewelry Sure you might need to have a lot of creativity and know-how to create your own computer key jewelry, but does that matter? With tutorials online, and plenty of skilled professionals on Etsy — it'll be no time before you turn that old keyboard into some funky jewelry.

How To Transform an 8-track Player into an iPod Speaker Our very own Colleen Quinn transformed her vintage 8-track player into an iPod speaker. It was actually quite simple and didn't require much time at all. So think twice before you throw that throw back away.

WiFi HD Turns Your iPhone and iPod Touch into a Wireless Hard Drive So whether you're no longer using it for music on the go, you can use it to store files! Once a newer and better iPod comes out that you must have, you can still use it as a hard drive (even without the wireless capabilities.)

Another Mac CRT Monitor Hamster House is a great option for lovers of rodents. What a great and unique playhouse for your small creatures. We've also seen old monitors turned into iPad docks and fish tanks!

How have you repurposed your old tech?
