The first version of the MacBook Air was prohibitively expensive, particularly because it was quite underpowered. The 2012 edition is much more practical, and with the release of the 11″ version, is more affordable as well.
We’ve featured Richard Nagy aka Datamancer’s steampunk laptop before, but like most modern gadgets, Datamancer’s products evolve. Unlike most modern gadgets, the second revision of his laptop is encased in wood and adorned with brass and gold.
We’ve featured some crazy casemods here over the years, but I can honestly say this is the first one I’ve seen that has blood coursing through its veins. Ok, there’s not actual human blood flowing through the cooling lines of this PC, but it’s still pretty awesome.
Believe it or not, this sculpture of a robot actually houses a working computer in its body. While this doesn’t dethrone the weirdest or the prettiest case mods that I’ve seen, the man who made it says he finished the whole thing in just 2 days.
I don’t think I need to elaborate on this one. It’s just an Xbox 360 with a case expertly modded with an Iron Man theme. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to brace myself for the deluge of “Where do I get one?”
I was just watching that Family Guy episode where they referred to Imperial Walkers as “robot camels,” and they are so right. Not that it makes AT-ATs any less cool – especially when the AT-AT in question is actually a computer.
We’ve featured a lot of unique case mods, but this has to be the most beautiful and detailed one that I’ve ever seen. It’s called the AzTtec and Dan McGrath is the talented architect and artisan behind it.
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.
Cooking from the inside out is what microwave cooking computing is all about. Of course if your computer were a microwave, you won’t be able to escape the aroma of the ghost of Hot Pockets past as it heats up.
We know your body and mind has long been ready for Mass Effect 3, but is your console as prepared as you are? If it still plays games then yes it is. But if you’re willing to spend to make it even more prepared, you can outfit it with a badass N7 armor courtesy of Calibur 11.
It’s been a while since I’ve spotted a cool casemod I thought was worth of a mention. Here’s one that I think you’ll like – assuming you enjoy movies about the mob. What you’re looking at here, my friends, is the Godfather of computers, literally.
Ask any gamer and they will tell you, all you really need in your gaming session are guns and a cold drink. After that it’s just sit back and frag. This awesome case mod delivers both guns and chilled beverages.
While I’ve seen tons of NES casemods over the years, I have to say that it’s sometimes best to keep things simple and elegant, like with this Legend of Zelda tribute NES done up by Ryan Fitzpatrick (aka “Platinumfungi,”) along with the help of pro console painter Jayrod2.
