Room dividers are often very stylish and fashionable. This one looks like a rack-mounted compute cluster. Integrated LED lights in the panels add to the charade.

||Why can't it actually be a compute cluster? In the
near future computers will be small enough to be
integrated into clothing. That means they could be
integrated into the cloth covering the average
office-cubical divider. Already such a divider could
be made of existing computer hardware....
||Presumably, because a computer of any reasonable practicality
would be far more expensive than just the LEDs.
||You probably could have a very small computer, like the Raspberry
Pi, though. To drive the LEDs as a programmable display. That
would be quite doable at relatively low expense.
||Nice [zeuxis]. I was also thinking of something like <link>.

||But if you did incorporate actual computers, you
could snuggle up to it in the winter.
