Is it OK to admit that we're surprised at how great this looks? If you're a geek who wants to show off your love for the Star Wars universe, your options were previously limited to displaying a shelf full of plastic figurines—not exactly the most grown-up look. But this? This wooden, riveted model of an AT-AT walker? Well, this looks good. And it serves a purpose too: It's made from a built-it-yourself kit and was designed specifically to conceal your office or home theater cords.
This AT-AT model is a triple-purpose home office beast. Not only is it a more grown-up take on Star Wars figurines, it's also a cord concealer and a rainy Sunday afternoon project.
This geeky cord manager is sold as a DIY kit from Infmetry ($39.99, Infmetry.com). They'll ship you all the pieces, and you put this model together yourself. It's made of wood and, once it's finished, completely posable.
And as if that wasn't enough, it's also a particularly awesome solution for hiding away your mess of a power strip. The AT-AT's body is essentially a large container with ample space to fit your power strip, and roomy gaps for the necessary wires to slip out. The power strip stays concealed, and you've got some room to gather up excess cords and avoid cable spaghetti.
