BMW Level 10 case actually exists, caught on camera

BMW Level 10 case actually exists, caught on cameraYou just have to love a case that radically changes the form factor. The Level 10 by BMW DesignworksUSA is a masterpiece of a PC case with loads of style. And it manages great design while giving you easy access to all components. We showed you the case a few weeks ago and now it’s been spotted in the wild.

We’re happy to say it looks even better in the flesh. Thermaltake and BMW teamed up to create the “Level 10” PC case, which was on display at the CeBIT conference in Hanover, Germany. Everything has it’s own enclosure, even the motherboard. And yet it maintains a graceful and thin composure. A beautiful monster if you will.

Level 10: The inside-out PC caseThis awesome looking PC case appears to be from a distant future. Thermaltake and BMW have teamed up to create the “Level 10” PC case, which is on display at the CeBIT conference in Hanover, Germany. All of the components are outside the case yet inside their own compartments.

Visually, it’s great. Would the cables be running everywhere or would those be hidden as well? There isn’t very much info on this thing so we aren’t sure if it will actually be for sale, for how much or when. All we know is that they would be crazy to not sell something so beautiful.

Cooler Master Cosmos BlackWhen it comes to the perfect case for a new gaming rig you are building, most enthusiasts don’t go with whatever the cheapest enclosure available is. The enthusiast wants something that has good looks and great thermal performance. A good case may cost more, but in the long run the tradeoff is well worth it to most of us.

One of the best computer cases around is the Cooler Master Cosmos, I actually use one for my gaming rig and I love it. Cooler Master has teased a new and very limited edition version of the Cosmos called the Cosmos Black. Details on the case and the bundle of goodies it includes are scant, but Cooler Master says that it will reveal all on December 11.

Napbook Laptop Case doubles as a pillow

Napbook Laptop Case doubles as a pillowWe’ve all experienced it. You’re working away on your laptop and suddenly you realize you could use a nice long nap. If only you had a comfortable way of falling forward and letting your drool fall where it may. Icelandic designer Hafsteinn Juliusson wants you to be able to crash whenever and wherever fatigue strikes, with the Napbook.

It’s so simple that’s it’s the work of genius. Just a normal laptop bag, but extra fluffy for sweet dreams. It should feel nice and soft whether your laptop is in or out of the bag. Extra sleep + extra padding for your laptop= awesome. We’re not sure if it’s available for purchase yet, but I’m getting sleepy just thinking about it.

Orb PC looks like a time traveling Pac-Man

Orb PC looks like a time traveling Pac-Man
There are PCs, and then there are PCs that look like Pac-Man has arrived from the future to kick ass and chew bubble gum…And he’s all out of bubble gum. Plus he’s got legs. According to the modder, this PC came about because he wanted to “construct some kind of Pacman or motorcycle-helmet that can open a visor driven by a motor.”

The visor is comprised of two quarter-spheres, one slightly smaller than the other. They are glued together with about 5mm of space for the water cooling system. I’d say job well done. This thing looks like it could lurch forward at any minute and start gobbling things up.

Mac Pro Pelican Case one tough Mac carrying case

CPD Industries Mac Pro Pelican CasesTraveling with your desktop Apple computer is sometimes just what you have to do. We think sticking it in a cardboard box and writing fragile in a black marker is a bad idea though – one of these new Mac Pro Pelican Cases might be a better solution. It will cost you at around $600 but it will probably be worth every penny.

CPD Industries, the maker of this case, says it will hold an Apple Mac Pro or Power Mac G5, 30-inch Cinema Display and accessories such as keyboard, mouse, and cables within custom foam interior compartments. The cases are described as having a “virtually indestructible outer shell, custom inner foam combination [that] provides complete protection from travel-related shock, vibration, temperature fluctuation, spills, water, dust and humidity.” It meets a drop test of 48-inches and can even reportedly be submerged 30 feet below water due to multiple latches and a neoprene “O Ring.”
