Tech blogger Kalovski Itim’s latest computer recycling Mac G3 wallclock, motherboard and a desk clock created from an old hard drive.
Avant-garde wall decoration – beautiful wall clock created from a discarded Mac G3 computer motherboard by Kalovski Itim.
My good friend, the blogger Kalovski Itim, recently introduced an interesting computer recycling idea on Facebook – a beautiful, fully-functional wall clock recycled from a Mac G3 computer motherboard. If you’re a geek looking for a creative piece to decorate your wall or if you’re looking for something to give to a geek friend for a special occasion, this might just be your lucky day.
This isn’t exactly cradle to cradle recycling, but it’s a unique and creative computer recycling idea, nonetheless. Talk about creating something unique and useful from a piece of electronic junk, this recycled wall clock is an excellent wall decoration and if anything else, a great conversation starter.
Measuring 11.5″W by 17″H, the time piece comes with the original motherboard, complete with RAM and processor, for carriage, while a used Mac mouse functions as the pendulum bob. The clock itself, running on 2 AA batteries, is set on a discarded DVD with some keyboard keys glued on, to show the hours.
A second time piece, also from Kalovski, is a desk clock made from a used 3 1/2in computer hard drive. Measuring 4″w x 6″h and running on a single AA battery, this desk clock is actually my personal favorite.
Arguably, it looks like a close relative to Dr. Brown’s flux capacitor (for those of you old or geeky enough to know what I’m talking about) but I think it’s elegant without being loud, and would fit quite nicely even on a technophobe’s desk.
The Apple G3 recycled motherboard clock can be ordered from PixelThis on Etsy for $75. If you’re a friend of Kalovski on Facebook, I seem to recall him giving a good discount on this item for FB friends, so I would advice to order and message him directly from within the social network site. He’s also open to the idea of doing special orders or customized projects, if you send him your own piece of used or discarded computer hardware.
Great computer recycling idea, Kalov. Looking forward to your next creations.
