Need ideas on how to represent "computer" in tattoo

I have an idea for a half-and-half forearm tattoo (like this
) where one half will be filled in such a way to represent computation, computers, electronics, artificial intelligence, something like that. Trouble is, I can't think of something appropriate that would work in a tattoo. Need ideas for this fill! Requirements and current ideas:

Every "fill" I can think of requires very fine very straight line work, which is incredibly difficult to get right. The area to be covered in this fill is maybe 2"x6".
My initial idea was some sort of stylized PCB, like this
. This is probably still the front-runner.
A neural network schematic of some sort. Lots of straight lines
. Not as many straight lines, but a lot of detail, and possibly hard to read.
Circuit diagram of some sort.
Cmdr Data's positronic brain??
What am I missing? There must be something easily tattooable (or at least not nearly-impossible) that reads as "computer" or "electronics", at least symbolically!
