    that will test all the weird hoover attachments when it comes to dusting.

    but i love the idea. i still have an old full length creative awe32 sound card that i can’t bring myself to throw out. i could use it as a shelf all by itself as it is so long.

    Man, would I hate to spill my coffee on that table.

    But just think of the awesome tabletop gaming you could do on that.

    It’s a decent enough proof of concept, now let’s see the bedframe.

    Eh, selac the boards, or enclose the table in plexiglass, and it will be just fine.

    A+ for concept, C- for execution. Propertions are waaaay too clunky. Also, it should blink or do something.

    It’s the kind of ‘nerd-chic’ that would appear on “The IT Crowd”.

    Don’t let the kids play there!

    Imagine knocking your shin into THAT in the middle of the night. You’d be liable to lose a leg.

    Oh man, as soon as I saw that, one frightening thought came to mind: cat hair.

    I’m from Tartu, Estonia. A bar in our town used to have some walls covered with computer electronics, but drunk people always managed to get stuck to them and rip most of the stuff off (:

    Interesting. Would love to see a ‘bootable’ version, where a fully functioning computer (maybe laptop guts?) is incorporated into the table.

      Excellent idea! And with a touchscreen display built into the tabletop!

      I’m starting to wish I had a house with a workshop instead of an apartment.

    Brilliant idea. Terrible execution.

    There’s a lot of other awesome stuff on that website. It’s not at all clear whether these things are for sale, I assume they are and yet there are no posted prices. When I’m kitting out my evil lair I’d want to buy some of this guys furniture, but without posted prices I can’t figure out what fits in my evil lair furniture budget without having to email someone for a pricelist. Fuck that, I’m going to Ikea!

    Junk. Through and through.

    Considering the materials, compressed air would be the obvious choice to dust it :)

    Sort of the anti-babyproofing.

    mmmmmmm….lead dust

    Obviously, not intended for homes with pets. The fur build-up on that thing would be horrific.

    Yuck! This kind of recycling-at-any-cost can’t possibly appeal to real tech-heads. If you can open your own computer case and swap out boards, then what’s the appeal of this junk?

  21. Baldhead says:

    I can see cats and dogs just loving someof those corners. I can also see that it weighs a possibly literal ton.

  22. Tichrimo says:

    Just like dusting the inside of a computer, compressed air is likely the way to go. (Sold by the can on an Internet near you!)

    i wouldnt like to accidentally bang my toe against that.

    I find the guts of computers about as attractive as the guts of humans. Interesting to look at on occasion for scientific/educatoinal reasons, but I certainly don’t want to stare at either of them on a wall, table, etc. as art.

    I saw this and I was all DANG, that’s cool. And then a picture of my two-year-old niece danced into my head.
    That thing could send her to the hospital.

    Idea- make another one, but coat with resin so all edges are even and smooth. Display.

    First-gen iMac logic board front and center! Also seeing at least a couple of Slot 1 procs with those godawful passive heatsinks, and at least one LCD backlight inverter board.

    Why no, I don’t have a girlfriend, why do you ask?
