If you’ve ever wondered how hard your computer is working, the Mechanical Tumor will tell you through a series of pulsations and growth. Designed by Japanese interactive media artist Mio I-zawa, the fleshy and super realistic Mechanical Tumor plugs into your computer and "quivers and pulses, growing as your computer works harder," according to Gizmodo. 

Regardless of whether it was meant as a sort of metaphor or symbol, I think that if this tumor was sitting next to my computer as I worked, I would probably stop using the PC all together.
