Awesome Custom Made R2-D2 PC Case Mod

Posted on 13 August 2010 oddy88

Most lovable robot from Star Wars series, a R2-D2 (Artoo or R2 for short) can be turned into a awesome PC mod case. This PC case mod is made for “Science Fiction Case Mod Contest” by Frenki Janse . Best part about it was that the budget for this was low and Frenki spent only $120 in making this case. He said he got inspiration when he saw a R2-D2 Pepsi coolers on the gas station, he was not amazed how they were made, so he decided to make a great PC case mod. R2-D2 PC doesn’t make noises, and contains web cams, fan control and blue lighted feet. R2-D2 was played by actor Kenny Baker in 5 of the 6 Star Wars movies, (but he was credited with appearing in “Revenge of the Sith”, even if he never filmed any scene of that movie) with many scenes recorded using mechanical and CGI techniques.

For all hardware “geeks” out there, these are the components of this PC case: P4 3.2Ghz w/HT @ 3.71Ghz , 2GB (4 x 512MB) of DDR400, 120GB Hard drive, Radeon 9800XT 256MB, Creative 7.1 surround sound, Asetek Vapochill Phase Change cooling @ -38C.
