When I worked in the corporate world, I think my time was equally split between sitting in mindless, unnecessary meetings and staring at massive spreadsheets. While I consider myself to now be an expert at manipulating PivotTables and complex Excel macros, I by no means love spreadsheets.
Since I’ve mostly been using a laptop, an iPad and an iMac, it’s been a while since I had a computer with an upgradeable graphics card. But back in the day, I was constantly gunning for the latest and greatest graphics processors to play games like Quake II and Duke Nukem 3D at the fastest frame rate possible.
Head down the rabbit hole every time you use your computer. That’s the notion behind this keycap set that features imagery inspired by the Lewis Carroll classic “Alice in Wonderland.”
Designed by keyboard enthusiast Rafal Hrynkiewicz, the UnAlice keycap set comes in a creamy Winter White color, with a skinny, easy-to-read typeface.
Are you the kind of person who eats at their desk and gets food all over their computer keyboard? Well, now you can have food on your keys 100% of the time, and without the pesky Cheetos’ dust and constant need for cleaning.
Created by artisan keycap maker Dwarf Factory, and exclusive to Drop, Foodie Keycaps look just like real food, only miniature, and in the shape of a key.
They’re three little keys that every Windows user dreads having to use, but Ctrl-Alt-Del have been part of PC life since all the way back in the 1980s. If you’ve endured your share of soft reboots and Task Manager app quits, then wear these as as a badge of honor with this awesome ring.
Joy Complex’s cast steel statement ring looks almost as badass as a set of brass knuckles, but I don’t recommend using it to punch your computer monitor or the guy at Geek Squad who told you that all your data is gone.
The Ctrl-Alt-Del ring is available in a few different steel finishes, and a variety of sizes over on JoyComplex’s Etsy shop, and prices range from $80 to $90.
Do you love chocolate? How about computers? Well if you enjoy both, I don’t recommend getting chocolate all over your keyboard, as it’s really hard to clean off. Instead, why not go for this keyboard that looks like chocolate instead?
The Ajazz Chocolate Cubes is a full-size mechanical keyboard that looks absolutely delectable.
If you’ve ever been to a data center, you know they’re ice cold rooms filled with racks upon racks of computer and networking equipment, and neatly bolted into 19″ wide server racks. Most of those servers are made from steel and/or aluminum components.
It’s been about two decades since I had to use a 3.5″ floppy disk for anything. I used to have boxes and boxes of the things packing everything from Microsoft Windows ridiculously bloated installers to various “warez” that I really shouldn’t have had in my possession.
We’ve seen some pretty amazing computer builds over the years, but this just might be the most impressive yet. The guys at Origin have created a custom gaming rig that not only is a high-end gaming PC, but has an Xbox One X, PlayStation 4 Pro, and Nintendo Switch built right in.
The 2019 Big O pays tribute to a gaming rig that Origin built back in 2009.
Designer Love Hulten has created some truly amazing pieces of retro-inspired technology, from arcade cabinets, to computers, to giant LEGO replicas. Love’s latest build is unlike any that has come before it. The EvoBoxx is a visual synthesizer that’s designed around the classic cellular simulation Game of Life.
The portable wooden box contains a small screen that displays a rudimentary, pixelated simulation of virtual lifeforms based on the classic 1970 computer program by JH Conway.
Raspberry Pi computers have been quite the revolution for makers, encouraging experimentation and creativity thanks to their low cost and compact size. And while the tiny computers are by no means high-end in their processing power, they continue to get faster with each generation.
If you want to make a cake that looks like a motherboard, you may have struggled in the past. Maybe it came out looking more like a motherboard after a fire. Well, Los Angeles baker and author Rosanna Pansino of Nerdy Nummies is here to help.
She will help you to make the coolest looking motherboard cake possible.
Fans of Eames era furniture are probably sad that they don’t have a computer setup to go with all of their other mid-century modern furniture. Well, this mouse inspired by Eames furniture would be the perfect compliment to your decor.
It’s called Lounge Mouse, and it is a concept design for a mouse created by industrial designer Shane Chen.
The Commodore PET 2001 was one of the very first personal computers I remember ever seeing. The green-screened 8-bit system wasn’t very powerful, but I always loved its iconic all-in-one design. I always wanted to own one if just to put it on display, but I don’t really have the space to spare.
I’ve seen keyboards with colorful LED backlighting, and keyboards with cool retro-style round keys. But this is the first time I’ve come across a single keyboard which combines the two ideas into one.
This colorful and distinctive keyboard from Ajazz features bright LED backlighting, which provides a brilliant backdrop to its rounded keys.
