[Plan] MVF Car PC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I recently decided to have a go at making a computer case. I decided, perhaps ambitiously, to create it in the shape of car. My idea is to have it so that on it's own you can't tell it's a PC. Some ideas I have to do this include putting all the external connectors in the boot and modding the power socket to be three pins in a row and look like an exhaust.

I have quite alot of ideas in my head for it so I'll try and get most of them down here.

Maybe you could make it look like one of those new all-lithium cars that is plugged in and charging!

CarPC. I thought you were talking about a PC in a car. That is becoming popular now for DIY people.

Yeah, everytime I call it a car pc I keep thinking of one that goes in a car. Need to get a car first tho

As for the look I'm thinking of basing it on the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Not sure if it will look that cool when I'm done with it tho .
