Guo O Dong is a well-known artist, who is known for his masterpieces across the globe. He has taken an ordinary laptop, to be precise, the Samsung NC10-14GB and has filled the laptop with world's 6 deadliest computer viruses.

According to Guo, the virus infected laptop is a great example of how the digital world can abstract threads to the physical world, in this case, the laptop.

"We have this fantasy that things that happen in computers can't actually affect us, but this is absurd. Weaponized viruses that affect power grids or public infrastructure can cause direct harm, said Guo O Dong.

You can touch this computer, but, inserting a pen drive or any other USB device and using the same USB drive on other devices is most likely to break at least some functionalities of your new machine.
