I just finished my first prototype case for VIA Epia mini ITX. Hoping to be able to make the finished unit soon...

:idea: Just wanted to ask what kind of ideas do YOU have for small form factor computers. There have been computers build inside the RC-cars etc. but we need something new. So pour your heart out and tell us your wildest dreams. 8)

Info about EPIA can be found here http://www.via.com.tw/en/VInternet/mini_itx.jsp

How about the old fashioned car computer? With DVD drive and smallish LCD-screen it would make a nice MP3 and video station :D
(The power regulation would be nice to see!)

Actually, I take my words back. Make it fit a bicycle (with dynamo-loaded battery) and you've won my gratitude! :lol:

Yes, I've seen those. Pretty boring stuff and those RC-projects are getting too popular. :)

1) Put it inside your monitor

2) Make it laptop-look

I was thinking about that monitor too but making it inside the regular crt monitor is rather boring and tfts cost too much. It would be nice to do this with touch sensitive tft but they cost even more. :) Maybe I should try that crt in a future.

What would be really funny, and an homage to Metku Mods, you could have a custom made mouse case, big enough to fit a mini ATX system. IT would be complete with a Fire Wheel (does not work as the actual scroll wheel, just for looks), and it's window would be a Cryo style window, which shows the mobo. Then, mod a mouse to look exactly like the case, making it the mini me version.

Entäs tää:

Käväse lemmikkikaupassa, osta sellanen hiiren häkki (sopivan kokoinen sille emolevylle), pistä se emolevy sinne, peittele se siististi (ei heti huomaa että siellä on emolevy), jos haluaa siitä tiivin kotelon, pistää pleksiä sinne sisäpinnoille, ja sitten vaan muut hommat kuntoon ja sitten joku sellainen hieno modattu hiiri sinne sisälle koristeeksi (elektroninen, tietysti :wink:), siinä olis sitten nää kaikki FireWheelit, Cryot ja muut vermeet... Ehkä vielä sellanen tekokarva pinnoite :lol:

Ja siinäpä se, olis tosi hauskan näkönen... :D

how about the funny table...make just a little box on the table (or under) and buy some pretty good processor, and underclock it very hardly (intel please) and then buy somewhere that logitech's textile keyboard (don't remeber it's name) and then a little TFT display (ten to fifteen inches), and then something flat that works as mouse...I have no ideas of that at the moment...but maby something like touchpad...it would be real steath, or projector to work as display...but that's pretty expensive, use own brains to solve that problem.

A)mount it inside a very old pc..... like apple II e, or mac classic. OR one of those first personal computers from IBM...
B)better yet mount it inside a speaker cabinet as part of a sound system..
C) mount it inside a chair..
D) carve out some books and mount it inside them (or just a big websters dictionary)
