Kiwidee Turns Old Imacs Into Wacky All-in-One Devices

by Lambert Varias

Klaus Diebel has always been a modder. He started out modding bicycles, then surfboards, then furniture, and now coffee-making computers. We featured his 3-in-1 iMac mod last year, and since then ol’ Klaus has diversified, happily hacking away at old Apple computers and giving new life to their cases. The latest iteration of his coffee maker iMac mod packs an amazing amount of functionality into the candy-shell case. For starters, Klaus will tear down and clean the shell of your old iMac, then add an injector and coffee maker to it. From there you can choose to add an iPhone dock, a JBL subwoofer, a Mac Mini, a hard drive or optical drive, and even a 1000W AC dock.

If you don’t need the coffee maker, you can opt to have your old iMac converted into a home theater device instead. Have Klaus convert it into the iMac A/V Edition and aside from the Mac Mini, JBL speakers, hard drive and optical drive add-ons, you’ll have the option to pack it with up to two iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad docks, an HDMI converter and an Xtreamer Media Player!

G4 Cube owners can also have the shiny case reborn into a housing for an Apple Pro speaker, complete with an iPod/iPhone dock. A USB sync/charging port is optional.

Klaus also has a couple of simpler but still whimsical mods for old Apple computers – one is an iMac mailbox and the other is a 31-plug power strip inside a G4 tower. Visit Klaus’ website Kiwidee for more info as well as for contact details. Price for the iMac Coffee Edition starts at €399 (appx. $570 USD), the A/V Edition starts at €249 ($350), while the SubCube speaker starts at €499 ($710). With these mods, I wouldn’t be surprised if Klaus literally added a kitchen sink on his newer projects.
