Steampunk Computer Casemod

Steampunk CasemodThis guy has casemodded his PC to look like something out of a steampunk novel.

I soon realized that my true passion was not in the ’40s, or even in the 1900s at all. No, steampunk was the way to go.

Thus was born the Telecalculograph.

Not including the original PC, this project cost about $70 total. It took around two months of spare time, and was done with basic hand tools. The only power tools used were a drill and a Dremel.

The Flickr photoset shows lots of details, and there’s also a video of the thing’s “furnace” working.
