LEGO Computer: Master Builder Race

by Lambert Varias

We’ve seen that it’s completely viable to make a computer case out of LEGO. But if you don’t know how to build your own, hit up Mike Schropp of Total Geekdom. He recently unveiled his LEGO Computer build, a nice compromise between form and function.

Mike’s LEGO Computer measures 7.5″x 7.5″x 6.5″ and looks like a 12:1 scale 2×2 LEGO brick. All of the components are mounted with LEGO and the buttons and ports outside are covered with LEGO pieces as well. You won’t find Kragle or any kind of adhesive here, just good ol’ stacked bricks, but Mike swears that the computer is sturdy. To combat heating, Mike put a lot of exhaust vents around and at the rear of the case. Inlets at the top feed cool air to the 140mm Notcua fan inside.

Mike also came up with two alternate top covers: one with louvered fins and another with what I assume are Minecraft-inspired recessed colored tiles. A strip of RGB LEDs around the top of the case lets you personalize the computer further.

Head to Total Geekdom’s website to order a LEGO Computer for at least $999 (USD). Yes, there’s a premium here for aesthetics – for instance, it only has an Intel 4600HD integrated GPU – but the computer can definitely be used as a daily driver – a DVD drive, Bluetooth and 802.11AC WiFi antenna are standard – and is also upgradable.
