Citizen Cube

It looks like a primitive Borg Cube, but we’re sure the Citizen Cube won’t be doing any assimilating: it’s the work of artist Brenda Guyton, who creates sculptures from found computer parts.

Wallpaper: Earth Inversed

We have dreams (nightmares?) like Eboy’s Tokyo Pixel Poster, which makes this a must-buy. Sure, the giant robots are cool, but I bet you didn’t see the naked chicks on rockets.
