After being the focus of a photo album, a cigar case, luggage tags, and even Christmas, the mild-mannered circuit board has now entered the world of couture. Gents, if you’re taking your lady friend for a night on the town (and we don’t mean to the nearest Apple Store), consider these circuit board cufflinks. Geeky-yet-classy, they have a silver-plated finish, are ¾” in diameter and even come in a gift box! And if you’re a geek-lovin-lady, we think it’s a great one-of-a-kind birthday present. Available for $75 USD.
So after we told you about the circuit board photo album and cigar, cigarette and money holders, we thought that would be it for awhile. But nooooo. Apparently the circuit board is way more hell-bent upon world domination than we originally thought, as it is now tackling Christmas. Witness this ornament set of a tree, star and bell, perfect for geek-ifying any Christmas spruce. They even come packaged in a gift box! So you know that friend you always call when your computer’s on the fritz—because you know they’re too nice to charge you for their services? Here’s a way to show him or her some love. Available for $20 USD.
Wow, who knew the mild-mannered circuit board would become so trendy? We just told you about the Circuit Board Photo Album, now we’ve stumbled upon this, the Circuit Board Cigar Case. Holds 2 cigars, and according to the website, can also store Nintendo DS cartridges (yeah!) and for ultimate geekiness, USB thumb drives. Available in green (natch), red and blue. Available for $25 USD. Not into cigars? Check out the Cigarette Case or the Money Clip instead.

So we recently told you about the diskette notepad, made of actual floppy disks and lined paper. Clearly jealous, circuit boards are now seeking their share of the limelight, as you can now buy photo albums (remember those?) with a front and back cover made of these recycled computer parts. Each album has six plastic wallets that hold twelve 2.5 x 3” photos. What techie geek or digital camera-phile wouldn’t love this? Available for $17 USD.
