computer caseSo you thought that once a PC was retired from data service it just went to the junk heap to be melted down and reincarnated as a Wii controller? Well, that's not what happens all the time. Some computers and their peripherals get a full make over and go on with their lives in the form of something new. Have you ever heard of a computer mouse turned Chia pet? Well, believe it or not, I found one.

A hilarious if not artsy gallery of images resides over at , and I'll bet that you will be greatly amused with what you find there. The creations displayed are made from the parts of computers just like the one you might have sitting on your desk. The best part might be that these projects all look like just about anyone could make them if given the right tools and glue. Take a look at the video display which was converted into a hamster cage. Now there's some ingenuity for you!

I guarantee it will be worth your time to take a little look. My favorite entry in the whole group would have to be the tower case hibachi. Please feel free to tell us about PC reincarnations that you have created and tell us how you go about building these things!
