Trash to Treasure: Sculptures From Circuits and Transistors

transistor and circuit motorcycle sculpture

It seems almost criminal to throw away bits and pieces of old electronic devices. Parts like transistors practically beg to be repurposed into something cool. These mini motorcycle sculptures go to show that electronic parts can find new life after the gadgets they once powered have outlived their usefulness.

If you look closely, you can pick out individual parts that the sculptor used. They were carefully detached from their original homes, then soldered together to make these unique and fascinating miniature motorcycles. These sculptures manage to be cool, geeky and environmentally friendly (by keeping the components out of the landfill) all at once. We’re loving all of the tiny details on these minuscule motorbikes.
