Motherboard walls

[Chris Harrison] and a friend created these motherboard walls for Carnegie Mellon professor [Scott Hudson]. According to [Harrison], he amassed over 150 pounds of motherboards, most of them off of eBay, to create this surreal project. Nearly every inch of the lab is covered with motherboards, of different lengths and varying shades of green, silver, and black. We think it’s pretty festive.

  1. This is realy cool, would consider creating something like this for my self. Though i would do one thing diferently, i would have to make them run, as a cluster maybe that would be realy cool.

  2. while this hack may not be of the electrical variety, it is indeed a hack. They took parts destined for a landfill and turned them into something functional (sort of) and attractive.

    And at $1.35/lb including shipping, this project is cheaper than gas ;)

  3. I’ve wanted to do something like this, but alas wherever I’ve lived I’ve not been allowed, by parents, school, roomates, etc.

    I’ve got an alternate idea floating around between my ears though. I’ll let ya’ll know if it happens.

  4. >>8. look at the new dust trap!

    Since it’s a lab, they’ll almost certainly have a decent HVAC system that filters out stuff like dust.
