“Ikea hacking” seems to be an emergent meme these days. Etsy’s The Storque did a piece on it recently, linking to last week’s New York Times article. And it came up at last night’s Dorkbot DC AfterDork, in this case, the idea of using Ikea fixtures and enclosures as handy and handsome electronics project boxes. Above is a laptop stand, made from two Ikea “slinga” brackets. It’s one of the “hacks” that can be found on the Ikea Hacker blog.
