Super Metroid Monitor Mount

Super Metroid Monitor Station

Wouldn’t it be cool to recreate the title screen from Super Metroid with your computer monitors? Your workstation would turn into a science lab, complete with a captive Metroid as an eye-catching centerpiece.

This mount would feature LED lights, allowing it to double as a lamp. It could feature additional functions like a USB hub or device dock too. Actually you could skip the mount function and just make this a standalone lamp/USB hub as well, allowing you to place it anywhere. Audio sounds from the game would be great too; an animatronic Metroid (that squashes like the title screen) would be too tough to execute methinks.

Obviously this wouldn’t be for those who like to keep their monitors close together for a seamless look. I prefer a noticeable gap to divide my tasks (art on one screen, iTunes or Netflix on the other). In fact, this idea came from the desk lamp I currently have parked between my monitors.

Shameless self-promotion time: if you liked that Super Metroid .gif I linked to earlier, I also made another one here (in case I haven’t mentioned it, yes I’m on Tumblr too — mostly just fiddling around).
