Fancy yourself an artsy fartsy type? Well, we'll see your collection of Monet replicas and raise you (lower you?) The Royal Data Throne, a geeky storage container for all your crap. And by that we mean keys, loose change, pocket lint, receipts, Tic-Tacs, and whatever else you can fit in a PCB structure that measures 12 inches by 11 inches by 5 inches.
Props to [H]ardOCP for digging up this silicon potty by PCB Creations, which is a treasure if we ever saw one. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and if you're not a fan of toilet humor, you're not going to find anything appealing about a mini commode made out of bits of electronics. As for us? We're more offended by the $500 price tag. It's worth noting PCB Creations sells a number of sculptures and artwork made mainly from recycled PCBs and electronic parts, some of which are much more affordable (and some not, like this $4,500 Post Apocalyptic Data Hunter: RONIX).
If you like this sort of thing (geeky art, not toilet art), be sure to check out our "Hardware as Art: 25 Stunning Component Powered Projects" feature.
