DIYer Embraces Wire Clutter


When it comes to those wires, if you can't beat 'em, display 'em!

Lifehacker writer Adam Dachis has a very interesting piece on DIYer Palle Olsen, who turned his PlayStation 3 and its many wires into wall art.

Olsen penciled out his design before marking it with mounting tape. Just in case the tape wasn’t enough, he added a little super glue to the setup. The end result has his PS3 mounted next to the TV with the four wires, making a nice conversation starter.

It probably wouldn’t work for a larger setup, although you could have a whole wall creating a maze effect. (It’s probably not a great idea if you have little ones with access to crayons and/or markers.)

Olsen’s creation is unique, but also a lot of work. We’re not sure how we feel about tape and super glue on the wall, either. He managed to make it look clean, though. What do you guys think?
