Student Builds $125 'ipad' For Girlfriend by Slyr0x: 8:51am On Nov 30, 2011




Wei Xinlong, a college student at the Northeast Normal University in Changchun, really wanted to make his girlfriend, Sun Shasha, very happy.

He knew she would love to be in possession of the world's No. 1 passion possession, the iPad. However, he didn't have the money to effect that love. So he set about building an iPad from scratch.

Like all resourceful students, he took to the Web and learned as much as he could about the way tablets are built.

Then he bought a touch screen and a battery--online, naturally--and set to work. He reportedly cobbled together parts from an old laptop he bought, also online: the motherboard, the display, and the memory, for example. Then he finished it off with some pretty little rhinestones all the way round the outside. (A picture is here.)

"One can read, download, watch movies, play games by just touching the screen," he told China Daily News.

Oddly, though the home-made creation is Windows 7 enabled, it does seem to have an Apple logo on it-- something that might amuse a few lawyers and stimulate a few counterfeiters.

The whole cost of the homemade machine was 800 Yuan, which, at today's inflated prices seems to be $125.

Sun Shasha, for her part, couldn't have been more deliriously happy. She told China Daily News: "This is the best gift I've ever had, and I will keep it forever."

Surely, with so many vast technical brains in the U.S., some dashing gent must have tried to make his lover a personally crafted iPad.

Or has love lost its creative power over here in the West?

What a romantic guy! So nice!
I hope the girl realises she has got a man that will go the extra mile and not ditch him for an ugly bastar'd in a Mercedes with tufts of grey hair freely flowing from his nostrils.

See what love is stimulating in a Nigerian smiley People will start building different, different things for their lovers e.g. keke Napep (full option) with AC smiley

These Chinese never cease to amaze me, so creative and highly innovative despite their level of poverty (at the grassroot)

this story tells us how far we are from our colleagues (students) in advanced countries. All we know in Nigeria is theoretical, the practical aspect of our education is zero. Some of computer science student can not even operate computer, most accounting students do not know how to use Accounting Softwares, almost all economist students can not run analyses with econometric programs, etc. May God help Nigeria

I doubt this can happen in Nigeria. why? Nigerian students study to become employee of company not as a potential inventor.

He was able to achieve because of the resources available to him. I bet Nigerian's would do this if we have such resources like Power, Internet and other infrastructure. I won't be surprised that someone also sponsored his research and development.

Why is it that we can't do documentaries like u always see in NaGeo --- Nobody would put his/her money there because to them its not productive

We the youths needs to put more of our time into innovations and we'd do better than this guy.
