It's a CPU monitor! With Artistic License! 'nuff!
...'course, for this comment, I'm tossing in that it's also a behavioral device for associating naked hotness with howling fans and thermostatically-throttled CPUs, which is an odd decision; the operator is compelled to either overbook CPU and guarantee that the nude is mere decoration, or guard modesty and silence to the fault of staring at the black of the garb.
Last week I visited a gay-hazing ecumenical. 12 and 24V molex sockets were everywhere and there was a definite fetish for the orange UV fans. Same-gender sex and fan noise were everywhere, and nobody would take off their black body socks. Eventually one man was expelled for packing too many fans inside his kuddl-duds, which was an oddly oversexed thing to do. Myself, I had to get out of that turtleneck. That inhibition reeked.
Maybe if the garment were more dynamic, or tore, I could tell from that how my CPU was; or more likely, laugh at mod-lm_sensors as it misreported -82 deg. farenheit measurements. Is that a gnunitard and ski-boots, honeychild? ooh! I'm hiding something socially destructive in my individuality too!
