Used Computer Parts Become Realistic Vehicles

KiKeARTS Realistic Vehicles Recycled Computer Parts

Being a computer geek, I have tons of used hard drives, mice and other items all connected to a computer. Due to the fact the upgrades are always incorporated, the old gear gets the boot and ends up in a box down in the basement. Why I put it there, I have no idea. Maybe it’s because I am hoping that one day I will be able to use it again, or maybe it’s just because I don’t want to throw it away since it is still functional. Either way, now when I mention it, it sounds more like I am a “Collector” of garbage than practicing useful saving. My hard drives will probably never become the first Macintosh or the first incarnation of the mouse.

However, I think I have found the perfect use for them and hope there will be someone like Enrique Conde around where I live. Enrique has taken parts off computers and other devices and assembled them into unbelievably realistic vehicles that are beyond inspirational called KiKeArts. At first glance, they look totally real, or at least, toy-like. However, when you look closer, you will quickly find that they are all built up of used computer parts and other stuff.

A broken mouse becomes a formidable gas tank, and a used cell phone makes for the perfect seat. The list goes on and on, and if you spend a lot of time dissecting these vehicles, you will find that they are a myriad of awesomeness all assembled into artwork that probably will be worth as much as that first Macintosh in a few decades or so. It’s a brilliant example of recycling. That junk really can have a second hand use. Tons more images on Enriques website.
