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.

New alleged MacBook aluminum case photos surfaceChinese blog MacX has some interesting looking pics that they are alleging is the MacBook Pro casing. I guess nobody is going to know for sure until the MacBook 2008 event, but they appear to be the real deal and it fits with previous leaked images that have made their way around the web. The images are clear and don’t appear Photoshop-ish.

External hard drive in an NES cartridge case

Posted in External Hard Drives by Conner Flynn on October 6th, 2008

External hard drive in an NES cartridge caseEtsy seller NES Box didn’t like the fugly exterior of their external hard drive, and so did something about it. That something was to drop it in an old NES cartridge case. The cartridge was just the right size, allowing the drive to fit in perfectly.

It’s powered by USB, so you won’t need any external juice. Created by them, it’s a one of a kind item.(Until someone else makes one) So it will cost you $180 if you want one. The only problem with putting things in old NES cases is that it might get lost among your other cartridges if you aren’t careful. Or your friend might borrow it instead of an actual game.

My Documents Laptop Sleeve looks familiar

Posted in Notebooks by Conner Flynn on September 3rd, 2008

My Documents Laptop Sleeve looks familiarI think I’ve seen that somewhere before. Just not in the real world. It’s a fun and nerdy way to protect your laptop, holding up to 15.4 inches, inside. Others will recognize it and have a little chuckle as well.

It’s a bright yellow case designed like the virtual folders on your hard drive. It may not let you rest your head like the Napbook laptop case, but you can’t have everything. Comes complete with pixilated cursor-pin. It can be had at ThinkGeek for $29.99. I’m cool with it as long as they don’t bring too many things from my computer into real life. I’d like to escape such things once in a while.

Napbook Laptop Case doubles as a pillow

Posted in Computer Cases by Conner Flynn on September 2nd, 2008

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.

4th generation iPod nano case designs surface, maybe

Posted in iPod by Conner Flynn on August 24th, 2008

4th generation iPod nano caseWe told you the other day about how Kevin Rose had some “news” that a new iPod nano is coming. A slimmer longer sexier device. Not exactly hard evidence, but there are some new developments.

These two case-related designs are supposedly destined for Apple’s next PMP. News is that Chinese accessory-maker Beelan has a silicon sleeve ready to ship through Alibaba, and iDealsChina has renders of the 4th gen nano as well as another case from an unknown Canadian company. Neither design can be confirmed what with the fact that they appeared on the heels of the Rose rumor, but who knows. What do you think?

Nintendo NES case becomes lunchbox, holds stuff
If you’re looking for a project that requires very little work, and simultaneously want something to pack your lunch in, you might want to check out this mod, which barely qualifies as a mod at all. Just open up the console and get rid of the guts and attach some hinges.

Your co-workers will A)wonder why you are carrying an old NES console, B)Beat you up and steal your lunchbox, or C)see A and B. What kind of person makes their own NES lunchbox? The kind of person that has an action figure and Star Wars Millenium Falcon stuff on their desk of course.

Datamancer Archbishop PC case mod

Posted in Cases by Conner Flynn on August 11th, 2008

Datamancer Archbishop PC case modThe Datamancer Archbishop PC case mod is different from most case mods that we’ve seen. It has an entirely overwhelming religious theme. I t’s probably pretty heavy as well since it was made out of stained glass. If you or your Neighbor Ned Flanders should want to buy this Gothic and holy case mod, you can check out the Steampunk art show at the Hamptons Antique Galleries in Bridgehampton, NY between August 16th until August 24th, 2008.

Interestingly, this project was nearly destroyed by a California earthquake, proving that God and the devil really do fight and that anyone building a religious case mod ends up in the middle. I’m guessing it sends you straight to hell if it catches you looking at porn.

The Lego Brick PC

Posted in Cases by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2008

The Lego Brick PCLegos aren’t just for play you know. They can also be used to construct and even fix important real life things that you can use. Like this Lego PC case for example. Looking like some shiny black monolith, it’s made entirely out of black Lego bricks. Look how nice and shiny that is. He didn’t just randomly put Lego bricks together either. He used MLCAD to specifically design the PC before building.

The PC is a Mini-ITX form factor that allows for a low power PC inside, which runs a 1.5GHz VIA C7 processor and has a 250GB Seagate hard drive. It’s even got dual gigabite ports on the JetWay motherboard. Very nice. Check out the below video to see how he did it. Yet another real life situation solved by Legos. Have you played with Legos today?
