Gross Gallery: Artist draws gadgets with human guts

If artist Mads Peitersen ran the world, I wouldn't be telling you about the iPad Mini, but instead the new bioPhone 5, with a dual-valve processor and twice the intestinal track length of previous generations. Also, Apple now covers cracked bioPhone ribs under Apple Care. It's a bold new world!

Down below, you can find Peitersen's awesomely gross gadgets — including a few at the end that aren't so gory just to cleanse the palette. Gadgets with biological guts certainly would iFixit teardowns way more, well, icky.

Here are some words from the artist about his anatomical art:

"The idea is that these gadgets are becoming so advanced and cool today that we almost treat them as if they were alive. In a way users become attached to them:) After you have had your iPhone or your Xbox 360 for a while you slowly begin to see yourself as connected to these brands or gadgets. They almost become an extension of yourself or your hands. It is the feeling that we connect and attach to these machines individually.

The metaphor is that a really rather simple and very dead gadget gives people a feeling of being more present, more alive. And they relate in larger degree with these gadgets almost on a par with a pet or a friend!"
