Retro Patents

There is a new trend in turning old technology into decorative art that hangs on your wall. Framed Tech pays homage to the biggest tech icons such as outdated gadgets and vintage consoles by disassembling them and laying all parts out in an ultra-organized fashion, creating modern works of art.
