There’s more to a circuit board than just circuitry. Designing a circuit board is one thing but modelling an old circuit board to create innovative items is something out-of-the-box. There may be many electronic items in your household that are no longer in use. You may be reluctant to dump them and selling them would yield very little money. Many artists have recycled circuit boards into creative artworks to give a touch of technology to their collections. Take a look at the top 10 coolest recycled circuit board designs.
1) Circuit Board Shoes
Styled just in the right way to make the sculpture resemble stilettos, circuit board shoes are a way to go. Artist Steven Rodrig works with printed circuit boards to create sculptures. The shoes belong to his collection of circuit board creations that includes podiums, book covers, flowers and so on. The complex circuit design makes them interesting to look at.
2) Circuit Board Notebook

They make as perfect gifts not only for your geeky friends but for everyone for they are different from conventional accessory designs.
4) Circuit Board Guitar
A tiny electric guitar made from the innards of an old MP3 player is an amazing sculpture that produces sound through its tiny strings. It requires technique to create it for it’s just not a toy.
