So how come there isn't a large poster you can buy of a ye olde 50s style main frame with LEDs in it so you can have a mainframe on your spare room that only sticks out from the wall by about an inch....?

You're going to have to design your own giant canvas. Then sell it on one of those sites like cafepress or spreadshirt or something! You'll make a fortune!!!

Oh, you want physical doodads?
Hmmm..
Yeah, you're gonna have to build your own.
Maybe start with a big bag of switches.. eBay? Wish.com?

Big bit of plywood.
Paint.
Sorted.

Oh, and then wire one of the switches up to the lights!

Maybe start with one of these
Wooden Box

I presume they're wall mountable, and that the top/front would be suitable to drill and attach a bunch of little switches and buttons and other stuff to.

Add some air holes around the side for a bit of air flow, then dump your router/NAS inside.

This kind of thingy I guess, just something like a classic TV super computer, but, you know, picture frame thickness 😎

You don't want one with a glass cabinet front in the photo, though. That'd ruin the illusion.
