Mechanical Tumor [i-mi.org] from interactive media artist Mio I-Zawa is a seemingly disgusting piece of flesh that somehow expands and contracts depending on the actual CPU usage of the computer. People are invited to touch and feel the "skin of your computer", which is actuated through a simple air compressor.

Watch the demonstration movie below.

Why such a disgusting object? They could have used a blowfish, a peacock, or something cute and fuzzy that's actually pleasant to touch.
The idea of mapping parameters to physical object is very cool though.
