Obsidian Hand Knife-shaped computer

Now that computers are small enough to basically fit in anything, what shape should we be making stuff so it is fun to interact with? First of all original materials are probably better. Second, what shape would work? Maybe someone could scan a whole bunch of archeological obsidian hand knives and average them together and then embed a computer in that.

I would also like a computer shsped like a cartoon caveman club please.

       What sort of fun interactions does one have with an obsidian hand knife? Ritual sacrifice?
