[Techpowerup.com] Gigabyte Decks Up Taiwanese Airport with Art Piece Made of Hundreds of Motherboards

Motherboard giant Gigabyte contributed to a nerdtastic art piece put in place by authorities of the Taoyuan International Airport in Taiwan, Gigabyte's home country. A hall inside gate B7 of terminal 1 at the airport sports a wall-hung art-piece made entirely of Gigabyte motherboards, consisting of two lines, and a circle. The circle, made of identical motherboards, looks like a silicon wafer, and from a distance, each motherboard looks like a chip die on that wafer. A map of the island is also carved out of a motherboard on that circle.

Next to it is a large "Made in Taiwan" sign, also made by Gigabyte motherboards. This art piece is said to be using more than 1,200 motherboards, which of course are dead, returned for replacement pieces. After years of war and poverty, Taiwan has emerged as a major hub of semiconductor and electronics industries, there are ongoing efforts such as this one to propagate Taiwan as a stable investiment destination, and in a pretty geeky way, we might add.
