Mac laptop and PC find a new home

Winning idea by ken.swallow

Describe your creation.

I had a Mac laptop with a broken hinge, an PC I wasn't using and an old Star Wars toy with missing parts and thought why not give them all new life in new home. I took out the inside of the toy, worked some magic and added a Mac titanium motherboard with a Micro ATX motherboard, kept the working sounds from the toy, added a few fans and as you can see in the video, they all love their new home.

Awesome mod. Makes me want to break out some of my old toys in the attic to see what I can make. :)

It wasn't done in time for the Orlando show Asley, Ken finished it in June during a week of high stress when our beloved dog Max was hospitalized. We're working on doing the show in Tampa at MOSI in November, keep watching kenbots.com for where we'll have it on display next.

Saw this in person at the show at DFAC, this video is good but seeing this is person will blow your mind. This guy deserves to win, this is just one of many baddass things he's made from recycled computers that would have ended up in a landfill. Keep up the great work Ken
