Ok, I have a computer class in school and the current assignment is to come up with an idea for a case mod, and we are actually going to make it in class.
So I need your help in coming up with either a unique or cool looking, yet relatively easy-to-build idea, and DEFINATELY not very expensive idea for either making a case from scratch, or an object (ex. trash can) that I can turn into a computer case. Something like $50 or less (hopefully).
MonsterMawd at mnpctech.com has some really great video clips over at youtube.com. I looked at bunch of them the other day. Also try searching Google for case mods. I found some really great stuff, including the Victorian keyboard and monitor seen on "Warehouse 13" on the SyFy Channel (new name for Sci-Fi).
Recycling of old/outdated appliances should still be a good mod. Looking around my place an old window mounted air conditioner, old file cabinet or old toolbox. Maybe a mobile idea like a wheeled carry on type luggage bag, a wheeled pressure washer or wheeled tool cart. You might make a stop at your local dump or a thrift type store and see what's a usable size and shape and cheap$$.
