8 Foot Steampunk - Frankenstein Computer Case - Wild!
I have a few big gears and lots of spare parts laying around, and if I can ditch this flu, I am so ready to start a Steampunk computer project over the long holiday weekend. I need more parts, though, and I always find the best ones in the spring. But I do have a big, Gothic-creepy barn here, so maybe I'll go on an expedition to find the those perfect parts to make my own console (and make it light up at night like that one great photo below!)From SlashGear.com
"As insane Steampunk PC case mods go, this Frankenstein machine by D. Mattocks will take some beating. Standing almost eight feet tall, and bristling with copper piping, vintage gauges and glass indicator lights from an old navy ship, it’s not so much a computer as a tribute to H.G. Wells, Dr Frankenstein and the sort of coffin Isambard Kingdom Brunel would’ve probably liked to be buried in.
The vent was salvaged from an old church, and now acts as the air inlet for the water-cooling system. Meanwhile everything is backlight with green cold-cathode tubes, which manage to make the Frankenstein Computer look even more ominous. Happily one of the gauges does actually show the computer temperature, though there’s probably not a steam blow-off valve.
In fact the only really incongruent thing is the drive face-plates, which are still stock black plastic and stand out like a sore thumb. Hopefully they’ll get some Steampunk dressing-up of their own."images and text via: http://www.slashgear.com/8ft-steampunk-frankenstein-computer-case-mod-1935096/
