We’ve seen some cool case mods before, and even some cool Star Wars-based case mods, but this R2-D2 computer case might be the best one we’ve seen yet.
This one was built by Podpadstudios in Wiltshire, U.K. You have to see it in action to believe it (No sound):
It does everything but project Princess Leia, thought Artoo does have a working screen.
Its creator writes:
I have a bit of a passion for building unusual computer cases and have spent many years trying to come up with different types of designs. I have always wanted to make a full size R2D2. Combining my desire to make a full size R2D2 and computer modding resulted in this build. At the time I really had no idea how to make an R2D2 and did not even have a full set of plans so much of what I did was guess work The R2 is made from wood and cardboard with the dome and ceiling mirror I got of ebay. The LED are mainly christmas tree lights modified to run of a 24v system. Both the LED’s and computer are mains powered. The finish and paintwork are very crude, mainly because I did not want to spend much money.
