Bright Lights, Old iMacs

Illustration for article titled Bright Lights, Old iMacs

Even with their outdated CRT displays, Apple's old rainbow assortment of iMacs are just too damn adorable to toss. But what do you do if you have a few still lying around taking up desk space? If you're Toronto-based travel and tour company G Adventures, you swap their heavy guts for bulbs and string them up in your offices as pendant lights.


Their plastic shells can't be any heavier than the giant chandeliers people hang over their dining room tables, so there's little risk of them falling. And re-purposing them as other appliances gives you a great excuse to upgrade all your office computers year after year. [Instagram via Jenny Serwylo]


I never cared for these iMacs, but I still think the g4 tower was the best looking desktop tower ever.

I wonder how hard it would be to adapt one of those into a modern pc....
