The world’s coolest computer

This is the best casemod I’ve ever seen in my life. G-nome, an Australian dude, spent seven months hand-tooling the plexiglass, chrome, and piping necessary to produce this water-cooled desktop masterpiece. It looks like what you’d get if Ridley Scott channelled the ghost of Leonardo da Vinci and the two designed a computer together. Check out his web site — it’s crammed full of lavish pictures and specs. You really have to zoom in on the zillion different details to appreciate the stunning gorgeousity of this thing.

More proof that casemodding is the signature folk art of our times.

(Thanks to Slashdot for this one!)
