The guys at geektechnique.org have a nice little tutorial on how to “hack” together a pair of cufflinks out of Ethernet connectors and bits of wire.
Here’s the link to the Crimp-your-own Cufflinks tutorial if you want to follow suit. It’s a pretty entertaining read even if you don’t actually need a pair of Ethernet cufflinks.
Have they started a trend? Could Ethernet Connector Cufflinks be most-geek-style clothing accessory ever? Try them out at your next computer convention. Maybe you might get lucky. How can you go wrong with a little convention booty?
Is it nerdy? Yes. Is it geek chic at its finest? Absolutely.
Let the crimping begin!
