20,000 years from now, what will the future generations of archeologists be digging up? While the obvious food item would be the long-lived Twinkie, technology wise there are a ton of interesting items to puzzle future researchers. I mean, what the heck are they going to think of USB cables and iPads?
Going a little back in time from our current era, the people at Bughouse have created what they call “Future Fossils” out of cast cement. The individually cast and color stained pieces represent some of the most desirable and iconic hardware from days gone by, from the Atari joystick, to the twin lens Rolleiflex and the Olympus OM-1 (my awesome first camera!). The life-sized sculptures are sure to stick around for quite a while… and look very good doing it too.

Each piece is available for between $65 and $125 (excepting the large and complex turntable which goes for a cool $495), making them more expensive, but longer lived than there fully functional brethren (maybe with the exception of their plastic bits).
