Computer grows tumor, hopefully benign

This mechanical tumor by Mio I-zawa is actually a visualizer that shows CPU usage. It’s meant to give an indication of the computers ‘stress level’. I love the creepy organic aesthetic, but it seems like the tumor should only be monitoring the unwanted parts of your CPU load. Perhaps it could be made to monitor spyware and botnet activity on your computer?
