    LEGO Computer-case ^^

    Hey people!

    Today i sort of accidently stumbled across some old pics of a little project i did with a friend of mine, quite some years ago. I just thought i had to share this with all of you, since it's actually pretty cool :-P

    What i'm talking about, is a computer case entirely built from LEGO. (yes, too much time on your hands, a creative mind and lots of old LEGO stored somewhere does weird things with people ;-))

    So all the hardware is tightly secured with... LEGO blocks only ^^ In the end the thing was rocksolid, worked like a charm and looked great, so i suppose it was a succesfull project hehe. Downside was it had to be taken apart a week later, but i'm glad i've taken these pics (and found them again).

    Here goes:


    This is the hardware we used, in a test setup. All of it was pretty old crap but it still worked so there :-P After the initial testing we could start building (not much pics of the process)


    This is halfway, first priority was to secure the mainboard as good as possible, and support the cards in it. tight LEGO Technic beams and columns ^^ (ah yes, architecture student, can you blame me? :-P)


    Halfway, inside view (don't mind the dead LEGO dude on the videocard :-P)


    The backside was intentionally left open for the cooler looks (and it was solid, man :-P)


    Of course we want a floppy drive too. And it has to look cool too.


    The towery thing on the left is the power button (with the spring to put the button back into position. Lovely.

    Now for the full pics of the end result

    front (http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z...pic16groot.jpg for big)


    full 1 (http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z...pic17groot.jpg for big)


    full 2 (http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z...pic18groot.jpg for big)

    And there you have it. One up and running computer, stylishly encased in LEGO :-P There are little details everywhere, LEGO men doing stuff , fans behind fences, cables going in through doors, stylish air ducts etcetera :-P I really pity that it had to be taken apart :-(

    Anyway, that's it
    Hmmm....

    Hmm. It looks very nice, but what about cooling? Man, this happens when you have a lot a time and you don't have anything else to do. BTW, it's a nice job with this "case".

    There was one big fan in the yellow section (as you can see, with the red fences in front of it), other than that there was the regular cpu and videocard fan ofcourse. Air could easily flow in and out since there were several holes in it (one intentionally for cooling, the big one with the arch). The big red L-shaped part with the mechanic sign on it could open upwards aswell And, it was pretty old stuff so it didn't generate a whole lot of heat
    Hmmm....

    Thanks, exactly my thougts aswell

    Even though it's been like 5 years ago, i still remember how much fun it was building this. Maybe i'm just a big kid, but i'd actually love to do it again, even now, if i'd have stuff to do so
    Hmmm....
