Customization sensation

I’ve never understood the customization impulse, at least not when it comes to physical objects. Below is a series of modded consoles and PC ‘rigs.’ I can understand the drive to stand out, to personalise, to outwardly express ‘who you are’ to the rest of the world but aren’t there better things to spend your money on?

I’m not denying that cars, coffins, consoles can all be made to look cool with a bit of imagination and customization but maybe I’m just too lazy or not aspergers enough. That being said, I’ve easily pissed away hours of this mortal toil ‘levelling up’ characters in computer games, so maybe I am aspergers enough. Pass me a soldering iron!
