Use your laptop for a tracing backlight.
Authored by: ClausD on Feb 21, '12 06:07:22PM

I have used the screen of a laptop as background light for experimental photography with great luck. I used an old IBM Thinkpad as I wouldn't risk my beloved MBP. ;o)) It is n fact a very funny idea, as You have a polarized glass in front, and if You place some plastic objects on the screen, and use a polarizing filter on your camera, you can get many funny results.
