Now-a-days, one may see people around, determined to get their hands on the latest model of Iphone, however the fact remains that the price is often not affordable for laymen ,and in order to purchase an Iphone, they may have to work for months, without spending much on their basic needs and themselves.

Generally one doesn’t think of technology as being decorative so much as practical. Most of our devices exist to serve a specific function and to fulfil a particular need, and they don’t tend to focus too much on looking pretty doing it. Even if you love the build quality of your iPhone 5s, it’s not exactly something you’d hang over the landing or frame (unless you’re a real Apple fanatic…).
But despite this reputation, technology doesn’t always ignore the aesthetics and in fact some technology is designed specifically to look good. This decorative technology can be intricate, full of motion and life and often lit with exciting neon lighting. It’s a great way to make your home look more attractive and more modern at the same time, so let’s take a look at some of the high tech ornamentation and decoration you could start making use of.
Plasma Globes: Plasma globes have a great science fiction appeal to them that makes them feel as though they belong in a bad-guy’s lair. Essentially these are glass globes filled with pulsating plasma energy which dances around inside in a hypnotic fashion. In the dark these can create a truly fantastic light show, and the fact that they also respond to touch means that they provide an interactive element too. Children love them, but they’re also a great feature for any home office or high-tech living room.
Lava-Lamps: Before we had plasma globes we had lava lamps – glass vases of floating lava-like globules illuminated from behind that once again create a calming and very ambient effect. While these look high tech though, they also have a very ‘retro cool’ that makes them more ageless than some other high-tech ornamentation.
Bubble Walls: Bubble walls are essentially a high-tech alternative to fountains that create none of the splash and have a very space-age appeal. You also don’t see them in many houses (they tend to be found in commercial settings more often) so it could be a good way to add something a little different for your property!
Virtual Fish Tanks: Fish tanks are great and unearthly features that that fascinating and hypnotic to watch. The only downside though is that they require a lot of work and are expensive to run: but not so with a virtual fish tank. Just as hypnotic, high tech feeling, and far more flexible – a virtual fish tank is the first step towards replacing pets with robots…
Sky Factory eScape: If you’ve ever seen the original Total Recall, then you may remember the scenes at the beginning where Arnie changes the panels on the walls to create the effect of being outside somewhere tropical. Sci-Fi though that may seem though, that’s actually available right now in the form of ‘Sky Factory eScape’ which is essentially a digital photo-frame dressed up to look like a window that then shows any view you want it to. You can even get skylights in a similar theme to make it look like you’re standing under a sunny blue sky!
The Question Mark Lamp: The Question Mark Lamp is a concept that began life on Kickstarter where it quickly found a huge backing from a lot of enthusiastic fans. Essentially this is a hanging lamp that looks like one of the question mark boxes from Mario. In the Mario games of course, these boxes are activated by being ‘bumped’ from underneath with Mario’s head – so in a clever twist the same action will also cause these lights to come on. They look neat and glow in a neon fashion too – the only downside is that they won’t sprout mushrooms that make you super-large…
Telescope: One piece of technology that has a practical use but also looks amazing is the telescope. The best telescopes look like they belong at NASA, but at the same time evoke all the mystery and the wonder of the stars. Like a guitar leaning in the corner, a telescope at the window is instantly poetic and demonstrates your deeper side – so it’s awesome that it also looks incredibly technical and mechanical. And that’s really the ultimate aim for your high-tech decorating.
