Cougar Cratus PC Case
There’s the AeroCool Skribble PC case that you can actually draw on, and then the epic-looking Cougar Cratus. Sleek and stylish, this case features 3D tube construction, which combines steel tubes with tempered glass panels to provide the ultimate in aesthetics as well as high accuracy workmanship. The inclination angle of the interior layout offers extra space for the PSU, while delivering superior thermal performance and great airflow.

EVGA E1 Frame Set PC Case
Weighing just 2.76-pounds, the EVGA E1 Frame Set chassis frame is made from 100% 3K Plain weave carbon fiber, making it the lightest frame design compared to other chassis of the same volume. It’s available in three options, including the full package Bare Bones Kit, but the one downside is that the cheapest option (EVGA E1 Kit 2) will set you back $1599.99 USD.

Shank Mods Hot Wheels PC Gaming Computer
Hot Wheels is still one of the most popular toys today, but back in the 1990s, things were even crazier. Patriot PCs actually created a line of Hot Wheels personal computers back in the late 1990s that ran Windows 98 / 2000, complete with matching peripherals, monitors, keyboards, as well as steering wheel controllers included. These computers typically featured a 500MHz Intel Celeron processor, 64MB of RAM, a 10GB hard drive, and CD-ROM drive.

At first glance, this looks like a medieval / fantasy tavern diorama, but at the push of a button, it becomes a fully-functional computer. This PC enclosure was entirely handmade, including the plywood walls, wooden beams, foam steps, a bag of gravel for the bricks, paint, and lots of glue. What they ended up with is something you’d expect to see at a theme park or in a toy store over the holidays.

Suitcase Liquid-Cooled Gaming PC Nuclear Football
At first glance, this looks like any rugged suitcase when closed, but open it up? You’ll find a fully-functional gaming PC, complete with liquid cooling.

Functional Toaster Faster Gaming PC
Yes, there have been toasters turned game consoles in the past, but this could be the world’s first functional toaster that doubles as a gaming PC that can run Crysis. Most already know that computer components do not like heat, so the first task was to separate the heating elements from the hardware components, leaving just one side of the toaster functional, while the other can be used to plug in peripherals.
