Acorn A7000+ Gets Portable

Sputnik 0667 PC Casemod Goes Retro All the Way

Datamancer’s Steampunk Laptops Can Now Be Yours
I’ve seen a lot of cool steampunk projects and steampunk-inspired designs, but Datamancer’s Steampunk Laptop takes the cake, in my opinion. You might have already seen or heard about the Steampunk Laptop. After all, it has been around for the past five years, and I remember gawking at photos of the redesigned laptop itself a few years back.

“Cyber Girl” PC Mod is More Scary than Sexy

USS Eurisko: The Ultimate Star Trek Casemod
Whether you’re a Trekkie, a Trekker, or just a computer geek, you’re going to be impressed by this casemod, based on a fictitious starship based on the USS Voyager. Actually, it’s not really a casemod – the Intrepid Mark II Class USS Eurisko is a complete scratch-built PC.

Tron Lightcycle PC is DIY Casemod Perfection

Tron Lightcycle PC is DIY Casemod Perfection
I have seen plenty of casemods over the years and some of them are cooler than others. Generally, we see a case that started life as a normal computer chassis that the modder added things to turn it into something else entirely.

Pizza Box Laptop
Finally, what we’ve all been waiting for – a portable version of the cardboard desktop computer. I’d amuse you with pizza-PC puns, but of course the guys at Reddit already have that covered.

Jeffrey Stephenson Visits the House of Wright with His Usonian Pc Casemod
Frank Lloyd Wright was an architect of his own right who came up with the simplistic design for middle-income homes he dubbed as “Usonian.” So what happens when you cross Usonian houses with PC Cases? Well, see for yourself.

WALL-E Mobile PC Can Actually Move Around, Not Sure on Garbage Collection
German tinkerer Thechoozen from Cologne built this incredible-looking WALL-E robot that has a mini PC inside. That’s not all. The whole thing was made out of sheet metal and also has an RC unit so that this case can actually move around, and he has a pair of webcams hidden behind his eyeballs to capture a 3D POV image wherever WALL-E roams.

Army Tank PC Casemod Has Working (Mini) Turret, Treads, Still Runs Windows XP
How’d you like a computer that not only looks like an M1A2 Abrams tank, but that actually can drive and fire ammo? Well, if you’re modder Skip Station, you already have one on your desktop. Skip’s army tank PC is a beast, measuring 32″ (l) x 12″ (w) x 11″ (h), and it’s doing a perfect job camouflaging as a tank.

Commodore PET Gets New Life as Windows PC

Commodore PET Gets New Life as Windows PC
Remember the old Commodore PET personal computer from back in the late 1970s? With its trapezoidal built-in monitor, it was the most “futuristic” computer of its time, despite its relatively meager 6502 CPU and up to 32KB of RAM under the hood.

Xbox 360 Slim Laptop: No, It’s Not By Ben Heck. Yes, You Can Buy One.
Master modder Ben Heck has been wowing us for almost five years now with his portable console mods, many of which are laptop versions of the Xbox 360. While his designs are great both in terms of form and function, most of them are either one-offs or quite expensive.

LEGO PC: Snap-Together Casemod

LEGO PC: Snap-Together Casemod
I rather like this PC casemod made from a bunch of LEGO bricks. What’s cool about it is that it really does look to be mostly constructed by the colorful primitive building blocks, and cleverly designed to prevent the computer from overheating.

iBook as iPad Case: A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing
A while back, I showed you guys a casemod that took the original toilet-seat shaped iBook laptop and turned it into an iPad dock. While that thing definitely had questionable looks, at least this iBook/iPad mash-up mod is a little easier on the eyes.

Game Boy Case Protects 3DS From Damage and Thieves

Game Boy Case Protects 3DS From Damage and Thieves
Video game modder Goteking gutted out a couple of Game Boys and used their carcasses as protective cases for his Nintendo 3DS. It’s quite brutal if you think about it, using your ancestor’s corpse to protect yourself.
