If you thought that DIY was just about filling mason jars with candles or flowers, think again because these DIY tricked-out technologies are something to behold.

These tech tricks are great ways to find new usages for your existing technologies or to upcycle the old ones you no longer use. By making new ways to filter images on a camera, new lighting for your home space or outdoor patio or giving your non-technological items a techie upgrade, these DIY creations are a great way to reduce, reuse and recycle.

In terms of old technologies, you can create furniture or something that may have never occurred to you before in your wildest of imaginations. The ski-created lamp, for instance, is a particularly wacky way to deck out a new lamp for a potential ski chalet.
