Electri-City Tables Built With Old Computer Hardware

Benjamin Miall Yates’ Electri-City tables use recycled computer hardware and LEDs to form beautiful illuminated coffee tables.

I try to reuse as much of the wasted components as possible—screws taken out of computers are sometimes used to secure the city’s buildings down to the ‘ground’, and I use the plastic or metal outer casings in forming the structures of the buildings or bridges. Working pieces of equipment have also been used in some cities, including a CD player and speaker system, digital photo frames, and a windows PC, pictured below.
