Yes, believe it or not, that is a fully functional computer there. It may have once been the case (no pun intended... okay, terrible pun intended) that practically all PCs came in your choice of a generic beige rectangle or a generic black rectangle if you're feeling rather special. Those days have changed and you don't need to stick with what comes out of the box (another bad pun intended) either. The folks at GIGABYTE invited some of the world's most famous case modders over to Computex earlier this month to showcase their talents and creations.
I know. It looks more like something you'd find in a sci-fi movie, especially since you don't really see the standard "box" that you've come to expect from desktop towers. There's some sort of alien-like exoskeleton, a custom paint job and all sorts of fancy doo-dahs going on. From what I can gather, that's a liquid cooling setup that is almost functional in design.
Another great example from the community of case modders is this open air concept. They've taken a case and transformed it into an actual working forklift, complete with moving parts.
GIGABYTE is particularly proud of its own in-house case modders, who put together the Ghostbusters-themed creation shown below. Benny Shieh and Janus Yeh took the retail Lego Ghostbusters firehall set and turned it into a computer. They routed LEDs, factory lights and more. And the GIGABYTE motherboard? It's mounted using LEGO bricks too.
The full press release has been included below, should you so desire to read it. The next time you look at your generic black or beige rectangle, maybe you should take a page out of these case modders and start to think outside the box too.
