"Oh Hanukkah, oh Hanukkah, come light the LED motherboard menorah..." How's that for a twist on an old classic?

In my travels through Hanukkah-land over the years, I've encountered menorahs in glass, plexiglass, gold, silver, and clay, but never microprocessor sockets and chipsets. Designer Roni Kabessa has definitely put a unique spin on an old dreidel for this creation, which is selling on the Museum of Modern Art's Web site for $25.

In addition to being constructed from recycled motherboards, the techy nine-branch candelabrum features nine LED lights, with a discrete panel on the back of the menorah controlling each. An included 9-volt battery plugs into the base.

The device stands 5.75 inches high by 9.25 long by 4.25 inches wide. And no, it won't support your CPU.
