Everyone loves to see what creative people can produce. But it seems like it’s the engineers (sorry, nerds) that come up with the best stuff. There are plenty of computer fanatics that are just not satisfied with a beige computer case. So they unleash their drills, grinders, and paint sets upon it until it becomes the ultimate – a case mod. And with that, I present to you the 11 coolest case mods on the internet!
I’ve always been told not to eat at my PC. This guy must have had that problem, so what solution did he come up with? Have his PC make the food of course! Yep, there really is a computer in there. Unfortunately it doesn’t make toast too, but that’s what buy one get one free coupons are for!
Apparently one PVC case mod wasn’t enough and this guy had to make a second. I don’t blame him; there is something oddly cool about cage-like cases. You can see all the parts inside, and of course, there is maximum air flow for that….airplane propeller? Piece of a jet engine? Oh it’s a fan! I bet that hard drive stays pretty cold.
They really went all out on this one. It’s completely based on Pink Floyd’s album “The Wall.” It really is a fantastic paint job, and the creature popping out is really nice also. It definitely deserves to be on this list, it’s true art.
Everyone has seen a Lego case mod. They’re nothing special. But this is unique – its almost an exact replica of the early Apple smiley face. At the time it was made, it was such a cool idea that there was even a BBC article written about it!
Now this is just cool. It’s simple, yet elegant. The case is lit up with all kinds of lights (because who doesn’t need lights?!) and yes, you guessed it. That’s an LCD screen right up there. You can put whatever you want on it. Also mounted on the side of the case is a programmable VFD for displaying text such as the temperatures.
Got mail? This is one of the coolest case mods I’ve seen in a while. I mean you couldn’t ask for more. It’s a mailbox, it’s a computer, and there’s lots of lights! It’s very cleanly done and earned its spot on this list out of pure creativity.
Come on. You didn’t seriously think you could finish reading this list without seeing a little bit o’ goatse, did you?! Well here’s your fix. It’s even red inside! All that’s missing is the wedding ring…
Now we’re really starting to get into the intense case mods. This particular Doom III mod has some very nice cuts, and the towers at the top are a great touch. Somehow it only won third in the competition it was entered in!
I laughed pretty hard when I saw this one. It’s a 1/14th scale replica of the Tamiya Mercedes Benz truck. It comes complete with a digital CD player, an LCD screen, and a trailer! Check out the page, it’s a really cool project. But don’t go just yet…there’s more to come!
This was also entered in the same competition as the Doom III mod. Fortunately for Chimera, I don’t have to agree with the judges and I am placing it ahead. Just look at it! It’s so pretty! I love how huge this thing is, it has nice cuts, and the bio-hazard sign just completes the picture.
And coming in at number one is….what else? The famed digg case mod. I’ve always admired the simplicity of the digg logo, and this mod took it to the next level. It’s perfectly modeled and looks awesome in both daylight and the pitch black that diggers like to work in! It just makes me want to go press a yellow digg button.
Anyway, that’s it for the list – I hope you enjoyed it. Hopefully I’ll have some more cool pictures for my next post. And please digg this one!
