We like Japanese artist Mio Lizawa because he's the sort of chap who sits around and thinks, "Wouldn't it be great if my PC had some sort of pulsating, frightening, brain-like thing hanging out of the side of it?" and then goes and builds just such a thing.
'Mechanical Tumour' is art. At least we think it is. And it's functional: the more CPU usage his computer is experiencing, the larger the, uh, thing gets. Write a letter to grandma and it sits there rather quietly. Start playing World of Warcraft and it grows and pulsates and frightens. We can't ascertain exactly what materials the Mechanical Tumour is built from, but we suspect it's made of evil and the sins of children.
We're hoping Lizawa can find a way to market this blob, maybe as a USB device. But we don't want it to get too popular -- we want to be able to sit it on the table at our coffee shop, but we don't want everyone to have seen one before.
