Are your desires …unconventional? Enough so that you have a deep yearning for a periodical of tastefully photographed technology, stripped down to its barest elements? Boy, have I got the magazine for you.

I have no idea if PlayGeek magazine is a real or some sort of crowdfunding gag, but I love what it promises—artful photographs of disassembled gadgets in picturesque locations. “Imagine an open MRI scanner on a tropical beach, or a vintage calculator—sprawled out on a rug by the open fire—flashing you an extra bit.” Tantalizing.

The magazine’s editors say you can read it for the articles, too: every centerfold will be accompanied by detailed description of all its parts and exactly how they function. The first issue is slated for October—assuming the project hits its $31,395 goal and successfully ships a product, of course. [ Kickstarter]
