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…

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.

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

Is that a Borg cube?
Borg cube, or…?

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.)

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

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.
