It’s “Monolith-esque” as Engadget describes this beautifully crafted High-end PC case mod built from Legos. Far from being just a plaything, this Lego creation was planned out carefully by Luke Anderson using MLCAD (A CAD program that uses Lego bricks). The software was also used to plan out and purchase the pieces through Bricklink, and the entire process is documented on Luke’s blog.
But it doesn’t stop there! He included specs for the parts, a time-lapse streaming video of the process, as well as the actual design documents released under a creative commons license so that anyone could make their own or expand on the original design.
As for the actual cost of the case alone? Luke says it’s around $163, a great price considering the complexity of the project and the value of most computer cases between $100 and $200.
Before I let the thought fade away I wanted to add that this makes a ridiculous comparison to Google’s original case built by Larry Page. If computer cases determined the amount of success in the creator’s lifetime then it looks like Luke Anderson’s about to take over the world.
