Like so many people, my Xbox 360 suddenly died. The console itself was unusable (Red Ring of Death), but the power supply seemed OK. Unfortunately, it uses a proprietary connector, making it hard to reuse. To avoid putting it in the garbage with the console, I reverse engineered the connector and built a custom enclosure to reuse it as a dual voltage benchtop power supply.
I live in an old apartment where there is no fixed ventilation, not even a range hood. In the summer, when I want some fresh air, I simply open the windows. But in the middle of winter in Montreal, getting a blast of -20°C cold air each time you want some fresh doesn’t seem to be the best option… To fix the situation, this weekend I built a custom window exhaust fan.
