Artist Gaku carves exquisite patterns on a variety of fruits and vegetables. Food carving is called mukimono in Japan, and apparently, carved food is often served as a side dish.

With all the meters and switches dotting its face, this computer case could very well be an intriguing contraption. My imagination makes me think of Steampunk similarities, while the case clearly isn’t that, the retro-computer look is quite fascinating.
