What if the pixels from your screen escaped and found themselves wandering around the real world? They’d look like these aptly named Bloxels!
Designer Jinha Lee came up with this concept while he thought about his monitor.
This incredibly designed dress will react to the air quality and pollution levels by pulsating hundreds of LED lights.

While integrating a computer into a desk isn’t exactly an original idea, Will Urbina’s “The Desk” casemod is (literally) flashy and makes no effort whatsoever to hide the fact that the desk itself is the computer.
Okay, honestly this is the best item for sale on ThinkGeek to date. The Levitron Revolution World Stage comes with a globe that hovers with the power of MAGNETS! Aren’t magnets cool?

The evil & mad scientists at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories built upon the idea of a certain David Friedman for a digital sundial. A normal sundial relies on the sun and only displays the hour.

Some mods look deceptively simple, like this customized PSP 3000. Sure, you see a few lights, and if you check out the in-progress pictures, you can even see more of the upgrades and fitting progress. But the end result is a disco inferno of lights and sounds that you’d never expect from looking at this picture.
If there’s one thing us geeks know how to do is turn the everyday into something fantastically dorky. Our latest invention? LED flowers, trees and shrubs.
