Old iMac Stand - Project ideas?? Answered

Ok, so i had one of those impulse buys.. I purchased a spare iMac aluminum stand (pictured). I was going to use it to attach to the back of my monitor, but the stand would have to fit below the center of gravity for said screen (see second picture) So, any ideas/advice?

Hmmm.... hard to decide what you could do with one on those... it looks somewhat like it could be used as a mounting case for a large speaker... just an idea.

Well, the main thing i play games on is my iMac, so it kinda defeats the idea of the stand..

Dig the mask. Perhaps the stand for a particular book?

Indeed, the clash of styling may be interesting to behold....

well there will be an internal clash, with the retrofitted technology inside the book's core.

nahh, apples design should not be messed with. I think the harsh surgical like feel of the stand will clash well with the book.

Here's a not so original idea....use it to hold note pads or sheet of paper, if you need to enter a lot into a word processor.

I dunno about the mask but it might scare off the missus... If it's not a monitor stand, I guess it could be the rife stock of some dystopian chrome rail gun. It looks like he needs to fabricate some kind of VESA compliant extender plate to correctly mount the old monitor.

well, the samsung is actually a media monitor, and has no vesa mounts. Being solid aluminum it is actually a bit heavy, so no good for rifles. I was thinking more something to compliment my iMac..

The first idea is good... it would make a killer lamp stand.
