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

Washington PC

Reducing security risks from open source software

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. ®
