I Have Concrete Evidence These Gadgets Won’t Ever Work

Normally, electronics require circuit board, electricity, and various other parts in order to function. So I can say with 100% certainty that gadgets made from concrete will not function no matter how much you want them to. Still, I think these concrete sculptures of electronics and other devices would look pretty cool sitting on a shelf.

Denver artist Eric Sahs of Concrete Collectibles makes replicas of various objects by molding them, then casting them in concrete. He then finishes them with terra cotta glazes and masonry stains to give them added dimension and depth.

Among the many concrete objects in his Etsy shop are a computer keyboard, a vintage Fisher Price kid’s television, boomboxes, various cameras, and a completely unsolvable Rubik’s Cube.

Prices for the concrete sculptures range from about $63 up to $400, making them quite a bit more expensive than the objects upon which they are based. Still, I think they’re pretty nifty, and there’s clearly a good amount of work that goes into making these unique works of art. Personally, I’d love to have the concrete Atari 2600 joystick on my bookshelf.
