Geeky computer part art

We here at Pingdom clearly belong to the “geek category” of people here on Earth. We love computers and technology, and almost anything related to that. Even when the computers have been broken down and recycled, they can provide gratification, as shown by the pictures you see below.

This is a collection of art (and cool things that may or may not be art, but who are we to judge?) made with computer parts. It’s quite an eclectic mix from all around the world. We hope you’ll enjoy these 20 pictures of “computer part art.”

Some people use guard dogs, others use…

Apparently this behemoth is made almost entirely from spare computer parts.

Eggstra circuit boards

This egg is found near Stanford University in Palo Alto.

The most technology-filled lamp in the world

Literally stuffed with technology. Let us hope there isn’t too much flammable material in there.

Tech scare

This sculpure from the UK is called the ”Weee Man.” Obviously created before Nintendo made Wii a fun and happy thing.

The art of not working at work

Someone has too much time on their hands. But it IS cool.

The tech palette

Perfectly adapted for tech art, isn’t it? Forget those oil paintings. The work of sculptor Pierre I. Brunet from Canada.

A flower pot?

It’s either that (a flower pot) or a table with… eggs…? Eggs and chips? To be honest, we really, really don’t know.

CapsLock it to the fridge

This, quite frankly, is the best fridge magnet ever.

Don’t SIT on the motherboard!

Somehow this doesn’t seem like a structurally sound idea.

Is that a Borg cube?

Borg cube, or…?

Geek Harley

Considering the wheels, this one will at least have more storage capacity than a real Harley.

The geek version of Mona Lisa

From an art exhibition in Beijing, China. The name of the piece? “Technology Smiling”. (Of course.)

Mouse mecha

After being kicked out of the Transformers, this robot went into deep depression.

High-tech dinosaur

The dinosaurs were apparently more technologically advanced than previously assumed. (Found during an excavation at CeBIT ´06.)

Mac that only handles snail mail

Could this mailbox possibly be standing in front of the home of a Mac addict?

Serving hard time

Yep, it’s a hard drive desk clock.

This mouse clearly has a bug

Somehow we don’t want to use this mouse at all. Looks like it might be painful.

This server serves coffee

Normally coffee + computer is a bad idea.

When geeks get married

Ok, so it’s a bracelet, not a ring. But it could be cool with a ring like that.

Trinkets for everyone

Looks like someone’s found themselves quite a niche. Everything sold here is made from computer parts.

There! That was the last of them. We hope you liked this collection. 🙂
