Maico Akiba paints modern objects to make them seem 100 years old

If you’ve ever wanted to know what your beloved belongings will look like 100 years from now, you’re on the right page. Japanese artist Maico Akiba has been painting a range of everyday belongings to make them appear like they have decayed over time. All items are still fully functional, though. I think it would be pretty cool to turn up to your office with a decayed iPod, pull out a decayed calculator, and get to work on your decayed computer. Just remember: you might just end up seeming like a weirdo. [Follow me on Twitter @cormy96]
