7 Awesome Robotic Case Mods

Posted 21 May 2009 at 14:43 UTC by Rog-a-matic Share This

Customizing computer cases is very popular these days and several websites are dedicated to the endeavor. A Robot-themed enclosure is a perfect match for a blazing motherboard and heatsink-engulfed video cards.

An obvious candidate would be our beloved R2-D2. We've all seen action figures and LEGO projects, but a computer fashioned by Ken Kirby after our bleeping friend is the ultimate.

Futurama's Bender has also been violated with PC components (Mini-ITX in this case) in this fantastic case mod by Jan Erik Vangen.

Eric Burke tosses his cap into the mod ring with this super-inexpensive, antenna-topped Android case.

Another Prime candidate for case mod bliss is a Transformer. This machine by John Mangus is over 6 feet tall in transport mode! And Adrian Gallego put together a great Bumblebee-inspired system.

An AI-controlled automobile certainly qualifies for this group, so here's a KITT-inspired case mod by Thomas. It's clean, simple and classy. Video.

I'll finish off the list with an incredibly ambitious and over-the-top Wall-E case mod by 'this Russian guy'. The amount of work this must have been is amazing, not to mention the cost of the raw material. I wonder what it weighs?
