These days, it’s pretty hard to design a computer that really turns heads. This new computer from DARWINmachine definitely fills that bill.

The Hammerhead HMR989 is one of the most striking PC designs I’ve seen in a long time. Designed by Matthew Kim – whose prior experience includes racecar design and engineering – the system flips conventional computer design on its ear, putting the guts of the machine on the outside for everyone to see. And it looks good doing it.

Created predominantly from panels of Ecoresin plastic and CNC machined anodized blue aluminum sections, the HMR989 catches your eye the second you see it. The system is accented by bright blue LEDs and offers open-air cooling assisted by a dramatic Thermaltake “SpinQ” CPU cooler. The system runs on a 2.8Ghz Core i7-860 CPU, and an nVidia ENGTX460 graphics card. With its guts splayed out, you can easily swap out the 640GB front-load hot swap hard drive, while the system boots off its 40GB SSD.

It’s also got a CD/DVD drive and an extra hard drive bay for expansion. In addition, RAM and CPU can be easily upgraded by just popping open a quick-release panel.

Machines are hand-assembled one-at-a-time by Matthew, and individually numbered. Each HMR989 sells for $2899 (USD), and can be ordered here.
