The days of clever hacks are not gone

Introducing: The amazing Linux Duracell CPU load monitor

You probably know those onboard testers found on Energizer and Duracell batteries: press the two white dots printed on the wrapper, and magically the battery's state appears on a yellow bar. No need for a separate battery tester, everything is included on the battery itself. While not very precise, it's good enough to know if a battery is brand new, so-so, or completely dead. [...]

Here are instructions to turn such a tester into a not-so-precise analog display to monitor the CPU load on a Linux system, controlled by a serial port.

Very. Cool. (albeit very geeky ;-) (via wormulon.net)
