Are your desires ā€¦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 promisesā€”artful photographs of disassembled gadgets in picturesque locations. ā€œImagine an open MRI scanner on a tropical beach, or a vintage calculatorā€”sprawled out on a rug by the open fireā€”flashing you an extra bit.ā€ Tantalizing.

The magazineā€™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 Octoberā€”assuming the project hits its $31,395 goal and successfully ships a product, of course. [ Kickstarter]
