4M Retro Wooden Computer: HAL 1000

by Lambert Varias

The 4M is another retro wooden computer from Swedish artist Love Hultén. Unlike his earlier creation Sputnik 0667, which was an all-in-one PC, the 4M has a more conventional tower and monitor set up. Hulten counts steampunk and HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey as the influences behind this lovely computer.

The tower’s front panel and the monitor’s frame are both made of walnut lumber. The menacing red orb in front of the 4M isn’t an eye, although it really is a window to its soul. The brass window has a magnifying lens that lets you see the CPU cooler inside. I’m not sure if the joystick controls the lens or if it’s at all functional. Maybe it opens a pod bay door somewhere.

Check out Hultén’s website for more pictures.
