Generally, when I see a sweet casemod it is well beyond my capability to build one for myself. I have no artistic talent and when it comes to making stuff for the case, I just can’t do it. A dude has unveiled a sweet Bioshock casemod that I can build though.
The casemod puts the innards from an Intel Atom-powered HTPC inside a 5-gallon aquarium and then fills that aquarium with 4-gallons of horse laxative (otherwise known as mineral oil). The only hardware component of the HTPC not inside the oily case is the HDD.
The dude rounded out the Bioshock feel by placing a Big Daddy figure into the black gravel at the bottom. Little bubbles float up through the oil thanks to the under gravel bubble filter. I would bet you could build yourself one of these for around $200. Just be sure you know what you are doing, there is a reason mineral oil is used rather than other substances. Checkout the video below to see the casemod in action.
