Seattle: we built this city, we built this city in Ram'n'Rom

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Old circuit boards clutter up landfill across the world, but with creativity and a little time on your hands, you could turn discarded computer parts into miniature cities instead. Check out this Ram-packed replica of Seattle's skyline.

Seattle cityscape made from computer parts

Network engineer Ali Difaez grabbed his glue gun and with a bunch of DDR 2 Dimms, RJ45 to RS232 serial converters, heat-sinks and such, created the Seattle circuit board replica, which is now up for sale on Craigslist.

Three bent computer case slot covers combined with a fan form the Space Needle tower. How innovative.

If you fancy owning Difaez's work of art, then it is still available for $99 (£64) or nearest offer. Failing that, why not create your own version of London's cityscape? Good luck with that one. ®
