Got a bunch of keyboards lying around? Repurpose them to make this: The Throne of Nerds! It was made by artist Mike DeWolfe, wrapping some 20 different keyboards to create the nerd version of George R.R. Martin's most saught after prize in the seven kingdoms.
The keyboard throne is actually for sale too, you can grab it from DeWolfe for $500. DeWolfe explains:
The Throne of Nerds is made in honor of the Throne of Swords from the Game of Thrones TV series and fantasy series. It is constructed from 20+ computer keyboard mounted to a chair. The keyboards and have been shaped and melted to follow the form of the chair, the shape of the user, and to meld together into a combined whole.
The underlying message is one of suffering. The keyboards have been melted and warped. They’re made to twist to fit, but at the same time that renders them unuseable because they cannot fulfill their intended purpose. The keyboards are black and silver, and the underlying chair is white, but those colours have been replaced with black, in whole or in random splotches. [Mike DeWolfe via Laughing Squid]
