Circuit boards, nowadays, are used in almost everything electronic.  These tech products have become integral parts of our lives, but they remain unseen – like those people that change the scene during a play.  (I always spot those little sneaks, though.  Nothing gets past Chuck Norris or Jack Kieffer.)  Some people agree with me in believing that circuit boards should see the light of day, and have created some awesome gadgets, fashion items, and decorations from these unseen workers.

Geeky Circuit Board Creations

These circuit board creations will blow your mind – nine times.  This post is not for the light of mind or the sick of brain – Cool Gizmo Toys takes no responsibility for minds that no longer function after having read this post.  You have been warned.

Circuit Board Dragon

This geeky piece of circuit board art is pretty awesome.  The tongue and tail are made of red wire, as is the awesome mohawk thing.  (I am at a loss for the scientific term describing a dragon’s hairdo.)  This is a great manifestation of circuit board recycling, and is a great piece of geeky art.

Guitar players are often viewed as what some may describe as “hardcore rocker dudes,” but this is not always the case.  Those of us who enjoy the … “milder” side of guitar playing would love to strum with these nerdy circuit board guitar picks.  Maybe those guitarists for metal bands have a geek deep inside them?  I’ve seen stranger things …

Everyone knows that coasters are an important part of a table’s life – how would you like it if people put hot cups of coffee or freezing bottles of water all over you?  These geeky circuit board coasters are the best way to keep your tables’ morale up while still looking like a techie.  Some of these creations were crafted from real circuit boards, while others are just drawings or other types of art.

This giant egg, the outside of which is fashioned solely from circuit boards, is nowhere short of amazing.  Located in Palo Alto, CA, this piece of circuit board art is seven feet tall and weighs a lot. One of the coolest, and definitely the biggest, pieces of circuit board art I have ever seen.

Cufflinks are a must for businessmen donning fancy shirts, but the cufflinks sold with the shirts are always incredibly boring.  With these circuit board cufflinks, you can spice up your business life by bringing a little “geek” into the office.  All of the cufflinks pictured above were fashioned from recycled circuit boards, which makes them nerdy and eco-friendly.

Circuit Board Pens

The first two circuit board pens pictured above are, unfortunately, not made from recycled circuit boards.  The bottom pen, however, was created by connecting four different circuit boards.  While the idea of a pen created from recycled circuit boards is awesome, it looks like it would be relatively painful to write with that pen.  The edges of the circuit boards look really uncomfortable.  Good to look at, though.

This is an awesome painting that incorporates circuit boards.  It doesn’t really fit in with the rest of this post, but it’s the sun.  How could I pass up a picture of the sun made out of circuit boards?

This piece of circuit board art looks almost as difficult to make as the dragon, shown at the top of this post.  How do people figure out these things?  Amazing.
