The Recyclart website has this amusing gallery showcasing old computer memory chips converted into Christmas ornaments. You can buy them here.

I've been recycling computers into art for a while now and there always seems to be extra memory sticks left over. So for this, I took the prettiest looking RAM, and drilled a small hole in the bottom to hang shiny bells from then, recycled older ornament caps to the top and added ribbons and bows. We end up with a pretty ornament to hang on your Christmas tree. A perfect simple gift, for all the tech geeks I know and work that will be brought out again, year after year to hang on the tree. Memories, of the Holiday's, a time in life where technology seem to be outdated so quickly, and saved them from being sent overseas to be destroyed.
