When is a Computer Case Not a Case at All?

When is a Computer Case Not a Case at All?
Looking for a way to keep your souped-up PC from overheating? This series of bold acrylic cases out of Japan does away with convention by doing away with the exterior case walls, thus eliminating much of the heat which might otherwise be trapped by a traditional enclosure.

Mario Dot Matrix Orginal Art is Pixel-Y Good

Mario Dot Matrix Orginal Art is Pixel-Y Good
I came across this cool dot-matrix rendition of Mario over on Etsy this morning. Using an original technique the artists refer to as “DOTRIX”, it’s a really unique method for presenting video game (and other pop culture) art.

Powerbook Becomes Desktop Mac [Casemod]

Powerbook Becomes Desktop Mac [Casemod]
While it’s common for casemodders to go to great lengths to convert their desktop systems into portables, It’s not often that I see laptops transformed into desktops. But in this case, the end result is truly a major improvement over the original.

Tetris Mirror Reflects Your Puzzled Expression

Tetris Mirror Reflects Your Puzzled Expression
If you thought those wall-size arcade artworks I wrote about the other day were a bit too bold for your taste, you might want to check out these slightly more subtle Tetris-inspired mirrors hanging on your wall instead.

LED Alarm Clock is Pure as the Driven Snow

LED Alarm Clock is Pure as the Driven Snow
I just love the clean, minimal design of this white-on-white LED clock from Japan. The simple dot-matrix display is powered by bright white LEDs layered beneath a clear and white acrylic shell. The clock offers alarm capability, and can be automatically set via a radio signal (although it’s possible this feature only works in Japan).

Sweet Icicle Lamp Keeps Its Cool

Sweet Icicle Lamp Keeps Its Cool
Designed by Japan’s M+K Design, these slick lamps use modern lighting technology to offer a cool, otherworldly glow. To me, they look like something taken right off the set of Blade Runner or Minority Report. Designers Maiko Watanabe and Koichi Tanaka’s Sweet Icicle Lamps encase a bright cold cathode tube in a block of crystal clear acrylic to add drama to any room.

The Pixelated Man

The Pixelated Man
At first glance, this sculpture might look like it’s made out of LEGO blocks, but it’s actually an intricate handcrafted work of art by Swedish sculptor Thomas Broomé. The artist’s Low Res Man was fabricated from thousands of precisely arranged 1cm see-through acrylic cubes, then painted to look like a real person when viewed from a great distance.

Giant LED Lamps Made From Leds

Giant LED Lamps Made From Leds
Designer Kei Yamamoto created these lighting fixtures that look like giant LEDs. Made from acrylic, aluminum and a dozen LED light sources each, they’re each about 20-times the size of a normal light-emitting diode. The fixtures’ clear acrylic shell and arrangement of LEDs create a beautiful visual effect on the wall above the lamps.

Tetris Case Mod Won’t Fit in My Living Room

Tetris Case Mod Won’t Fit in My Living Room
This massive Tetris-inspired case mod isn’t just a single computer, it’s actually a whole farm of networked systems, ready for some serious multiplayer gaming action. Conceived and built by a Spanish gaming clan known as the Planet Express Klan, I’d have to say this is the most massive case mod I’ve ever seen.

Ferguson Hill Clear Speakers: Do They Make You Horny?

Ferguson Hill Clear Speakers: Do They Make You Horny?
At almost 5.5-feet tall, you certainly won’t miss these giant speakers in your living room. The Ferguson Hill FH001 loudspeakers feature a huge acrylic horn balanced on a delicate aluminum base. The speakers’ massive horn design allows them to crank out plenty of volume with as little as 5-watts of power driving them.

Want a Cool Looking Calculator? I Dunno, Alaska.

Want a Cool Looking Calculator? I Dunno, Alaska.
It takes some really striking design to get me excited about something as mundane as a desktop calculator, but the designer who created this one has bowled me over. The clear, ice-like acrylic case inspired the name “Alaska” for this LCD calculator.

Space Invaders Sweater: What, No Sequins?

Space Invaders Sweater: What, No Sequins?
With cooler seasons just around the corner, here’s something to warm the cockles of your heart. It’s a hand knit Space Invaders sweater. Kansas City crafter n2Imaginations hand makes these custom sweaters from acrylic yarn to keep you nice and toasty on those cold Winter nights.

Toobe Lamps Are Like Totally Tubular

Toobe Lamps Are Like Totally Tubular
Ferrucio Laviani’s dramatic tubular lighting fixtures are truly a sight to behold. The Italian designer has created these beautifully simple tubes of PMMA (acrylic) which contain a bright incandescent light source at the top. These Toobe lamps can be ordered in either clear, or imbued with a splash of primary color.

Designeon LED Clock and Light Combo

Designeon LED Clock and Light Combo
I really dig the clean modern styling of this bedside alarm clock from DesignEon. The cool thing about it is that there’s a built-in light that casts a dramatic glow from beneath the clock. The clock comes in two styles, one with green LEDs and a green acrylic case, and the other one comes with orange LEDs and a clear acrylic case.

Lumin LED Lamps Cast a Colorful Glow

Lumin LED Lamps Cast a Colorful Glow
Here’s a nice way to add a little splash of color to any room in your house. These Lumin LED fixtures produce a bright color wash that’s perfect for adding drama to a powder room, or creating a mood in your bedroom or dining space.

Lamp Thinks It’s a Speaker

Lamp Thinks It’s a Speaker
This may look like some sort of funky 2-way speaker perched on a tall stand, but it’s actually a floor lamp. The Lightspeaker Lamp from Sweden’s LYX Furniture and Light features a “tweeter” and “woofer” which reflect light instead of sound.
