ConsciousFlesh useless projects is a site for (mainly) retro-tech projects such as nixie tube clocks, Tesla coils, Jacob’s ladders, tabletop ballista, and steampunk casemods. Seen above are a Jacob’s ladder, a wood- and brass-cased thumbdrive, a wooden computer casemod with a vacuum tube power indicator, a USB switch with a nixie selection indicator, and a brass gyroscope built around a motor from a laser printer. Lots of other projects on the site too.
