Here’s a rather interesting server hack that involves somehow embedding your servers to your IKEA furniture. Of course, my advice is to stay away from IKEA furniture as much as you can (because I spent total of $500 on 3 IKEA tables that broke within 6 months), but if you must here’s a great guide on making your own IKEA LackRack.
First occurence on eth0:2010 Winterlan, the LackRack is the ultimate, low-cost, high shinyness solution for your modular datacenter-in-the-living-room. Featuring the LACK (side table) from Ikea, the LackRack is an easy-to-implement, exact-fit datacenter building block. It’s a little known fact that we have seen Google engineers tinker with Lack tables since way back in 2009.
