The Aerodyne PC: Is Art Deco is the New Steampunk?
January 4th, 2012
This mini PC is called The Aerodyne, and it’s supposed to evoke the look of classic streamline trains and skyscrapers like The Chrysler Building. For what it’s worth, the Aerodyne definitely looks more attractive than the typical plastic or metal computer cases we see these days.
The Art Deco influenced Aerodyne was created by Jeffrey Stephenson. The system is built around a Mini-ITX form factor PC, so its footprint is pretty small. The mini PC doesn’t have a fan to keep things compact, and is made out of mahogany and aluminum. Inside, it has an Intel Core i3 processor, an integrated Intel HD3000 graphics processor, a 256GB Crucial M4 SSD hard drive, and 8GB Crucial DDR 3 RAM. While those aren’t top-of-the-line specs, they’re still pretty solid for a compact machine like this.
Like what you see? Jeffrey is considering making a small run of 10 units of the Aerodyne, but he hasn’t announced pricing. If you’re interested, you can contact jeffrey[at]slipperyskip.com. In the mean time, check out the full Aerodyne build log over at bit-tech.
