X-rayed games consoles are art, look

UPDATE: The Kickstarter campaign is live.

UPDATE 2PM GMT: The X-ray Artwork Kickstarter campaign is now live.

ORIGINAL STORY 9AM GMT: Ever broken a bone and wondered, while being X-rayed, what your games console at home would look like examined in the same way?

Like this?

Or this?

This is the work of BRS Innovations, a small start-up company with three members who have years of X-ray experience working for the military and police, peering into explosives and doing serious things like that.

People were always asking what everyday objects would look like X-rayed and the answer is... good - good enough for a picture to hang on the wall as art, in fact.

So the X-Ray Artwork project and BRS Innovations were born, and gaming consoles are one of the focuses of it. It's taking to Kickstarter later today (I'll update with a link once live) and seeking CAD $8000 (£4361). Pledges buy you the art in increasingly lavish reproductions.
