There's been a bevy of beautiful visual tributes to Apple visionary Steve Jobs since his passing on Wednesday. Our favorite? This piece, a portrait of the icon "drawn" using only the innards of a MacBook Pro. It's gorgeous, touching and fascinating all at once.

The Steve Jobs piece isn't the only awe-inspiring celebrity art crafted from discarded tech "junk." Each of these tributes is "painted" with parts and pieces from everyday devices—the same gear you have in your home right now.

Glance through the gallery above and see if you can figure out what each portrait was drawn with. Some are easier to spot than others.
