When I read this post on “best things to do with your old PC” it really cracked me up. This barbecue PC was probably the funniest for me, but they’ve also got one case turned into a coffee machine, many “mice” sculptures, and some very unique uses for old monitor cases. I think that you’ll enjoy these a lot! Have you ever “repurposed’ your old computer hardware for a completely new use? Comment if you have, we’d like to know about it!
I’ve seen a lot of case mods, but this is a very unique one. It’s a smaller scale version of a drum (you know, like a rock star’s drum from a drum kit) modded out to accomodate a motherboard, fans, hard drive, optical drives, and it even has a header with usb/firewire jacks including audio with headphone and microphone. As a custom case mod the things that make this really cool are:
it’s not a one off (you can buy one)
the design is high quality long lasting materials
the components are VERY well cooled
the display is awesome from all angles!
If you’re a drummer – you have to get one of these…right now! If you’re a musician, get one too. I mean what are the chances of getting a guitar or bass case mod anyway? If you’re a music wannabe – even more perfect! The design is well thought out, and this could be your last PC case for many years. Visit Spotswood Custom Computers for more info. Oh – and here’s a video to give you a complete picture of what it looks like and how it goes together:
