Tetris shelving so expensive you won’t have any money left to put anything on them

Man do I ever hate my lack of motivation. It had to be about 6-7 years ago I thought of an idea similar to this. You’d buy the different shaped shelves and could build out a custom sized/shaped shelf that would’ve fit perfectly wherever you needed it to. The Tetris shaped pieces would give it instant nerd cred that would make any geek proud. And let’s be honest here people, it’d be better that the wood plank/cinderblock setup broke artsy folks are using now.

 

Sadly, someone else actually went ahead and went through with my idea. As a double whammy they’re charging an arm and a leg for it! I was thinking you could sell the pieces for $25-$35 dollars a piece. Not dirt cheap but you could buy the pieces one at a time as you needed them. But these people here are charging $600 a piece, or $6,000 dollars for a 10 piece set!!! Now I’m REALLY upset I never did anything with my idea. Though I guess I still could, it’s not like a company can copyright a square shape… can they?

    Yeah, I think I saw these in Details, and I couldn’t image who would buy it.

    Maybe John Romero, cause he’s a rockstar.

    Both of you should visit a DWR some time.

    There’s nothing more satisfying than farting in a $3500 chair.
