James Anderson has started a remarkable project on Kickstarter, called Display-Z. Anderson noticed that a lot of old computer hardware gets thrown out, while putting it on display on a desk or in an exhibition case could be an interesting alternative. As such, Anderson came up with the Display-Z, a machined block of aluminium, from which an AGP, PCI, or PCI-Express slot has been cut out. The stand can then be used to house an old graphics card, soundcard or what other expansion card curiosities you might found around your house.
As of yet, designs for four stands are ready, three for the different card types and a fourth, extra wide PCI-Express model, for graphics cards with a dual-slot cooler. Each stand is available in different colours for both the base and the connector and will be powder-coated. As a result, no less than 72 different versions are planned of the Z-Display. To accomplish his task, Anderson requires $10.000, which will go towards materials, a website, and shipping fees of the first batch. The project can be supported by anyone, starting at donations of $1.
If the $10.000 goal isn't met by September 30th, all of the backers will be refunded. Additional information on the project can be found on the Kickstarter page.
