Computer = instrumentum computatórium, and other recent words translated into Latin

The Latinitas Foundation publishes a 15,000 Latin dictionary of modern words, called the Lexicon Recentis Latinitatis.

Here are some interesting ones:

computerinstrumentum computatórium
cigarettefistula nicotiana
engineerdoctor machinárius
amnesiamemóriae amíssio
deodorantfoetoris delumentum
megalomaniaeffrenata glóriae appeténtia

These would make for a good blog name or album name.
