i got tired of grouching behind the cpu and trying to reach the usb port. the real boost to this mod i got when i bought new mp3player that goes directly to the port. also i wanted to try new techniques for bending plexiglass, lighting it and use of paints.

it is made out of 5mm clear plexiglass and is lighted with uv led. paint is uv sensitive. project was quite hard to finish due to the thickness of the material and lack of space in soldering.

yes its a usb extension cord modified into a "docking station". i used only hot air and time (heat until its soft then bend and hold. repeat. also applies to closing corners) . one thing i have learned with plexi is: do not rush it. otherwise it starts forming bubbels and ruins the looks.
