From the article: “I started with the Idea that I wanted a Mod that wasn’t just a box with a hole cut in the side with some lights. I wanted to create something that wasn’t square and was kinda cool to look at, even when It wasn’t on.”
Building the case – from balsa wood, epoxy, green dye, and carbon fiber – for “Bugged Out” took more than six months and 500 hours. On the inside, you’ll find a P4 processor, Slimline DVD player, and servo motors to open/close the wings.
From the article: “I had wanted to do a dung beetle,” he says. “But there was no internal volume so I had to make a custom bug. It’s a bug that doesn’t exist in real life.”
Aircraft Carrier USS Enterprise PC
Now this is one extreme case mod. Looking more like a toy, this aircraft carrier-inspired PC features easily removable hardware components, a custom keyboard/mouse, and even working runway lights.

From the article: “The cooling solution works! Fans were set to 7 volts. With 2 hours of CpuBurn, the CPU’s temperature didn´t rise above 40 C.”
With green slime, bright colors, and rust accents, the “Bio-Hazard” looks like something straight from a horror flick. Underneath all that, is a fully functional computer. Unfortunately, technical specs were not available. [thebestcasescenario]

From the article: “The UTMod started simple enough. I was trying to think of a cool way to make a LAN rig by bending Acrylic. I also wanted to pay homage to one of my all time favorite games”
