USB power

Interesting workshops continue at Machine Project (just northwest of downtown LA). Here we polish up on modifying 5-volt devices to draw their power from a USB port (as opposed to a wall outlet or batteries; and yes, that is an issue of 'Make' magazine you see there). Electricity wiring in existing USB cables, ignoring/discarding the data connections (for now). First we used a China-made toy-fan (nice and bright), and then moved on to creating a battery-driven USB micro-component.
