Antique Radio Turned Into an Atom Pc: It Wooden Play Crysis

by Lambert Varias

Get it? ‘Cause it’s a radio made of wood and okay you get it. Seriously though it’s an absolute beauty of a computer case, an old Delco wooden “tombstone style” radio that’s been gutted and fitted with computer hardware. It’s a perfect complement to the soviet TV pc. While it’s not as beautiful inside as it is outside because of it’s nettop innards, you’ve got to hand it to Etsy seller abrahambook for his clean work.

The wooden knob to the left of the analog radio dial serves as the power button; the radio dial lights up when the computer is turned on. The computer’s fan is directly behind the front screen, where the speaker used to be, so it serves as a dust filter.

As I said, the computer is fitted with an Intel Atom processor, specifically the 330, a 1.6 GHz Dual Core processor. The PC is also equipped with 2 GB of DDR2 RAM, an Intel GMA 950 with S-video output, a 250 GB 7200 rpm Seagate hard rive and a DVD-RW drive. Peripheral interfaces include 4 USB ports, 2 serial SATA ports, and PS/2 ports for old school mouse and keyboards. The motherboard is bolted on to the radio’s frame, but amrahambook says that the hard drive, DVD drive and power supply are secured by “a very strong type of Velcro”, making removal or replacement relatively easy.

So yeah, it’s still kinda antique specs-wise, but it can do a lot more than a radio now. abrahambook is selling the computer for $625 (USD) on Etsy. He says he’ll install any OS that you request, but he wooden say if he’ll charge extra for that. Heheh. Did it again.

    Haha, that’s pretty slick. Although I’m sure I could cram an even better setup into one! ;)
