What will happen if I drill small holes in a flatscreen monitor?

I like this guy heh.

It’s 2019.
You should read this thread.

And the one about chewing on his hand.


#205

Thank you.


#206

linky?

Why anyone would want to drill more than 10 small holes into a lcd is beyond me, diminishing returns sets in very quickly.


#209

Well for one thing, if you can’t find your brightness controls, this will let far more light out of your monitor. Ideally, one hole per pixel, but not many have the patience required for such a project.

However, remember that if you observe where the light from the holes hits you will collapse the waveform.


#211

I hear they’re doing this to smartphones now.


#212

A hole in the exact center of my monitor instead of a normal webcam would make Skyping better.


#213

It would also let you aim better in those ironsights FPSs.


#214

Yea, my college roommate used that trick to “hack” in counter strike. Used a pocket knife to puncture a little tiny hole right where the crosshairs would be.


#215

Did he major in stupid? A little piece of wet paper would do the trick non-permanently.


#216

He’s running an ad agency now, but yeah, he’s a doofus too.


#217

How is it that this monitor thread gets kicked up every year but not the hand one? That one is even more baffling than drilling holes in monitors.


#218

What hand one? I just remember the non-lethal nets used to intercept enemy jet fighters.

You know what… Shit, that would actually work to take down US drones now.


#219

Well… Guess you missed @Richvr’s post a bit further up?


#220

Sorry, if you go to the post I replied to, Rich links it there.


#221

I had read this monitor thread before, but not the hand one.

Holy shit I haven’t laughed like that in forever.

I especially liked ElGuapo’s comments calling out the humor.
