Macnadoodle case mod: old G3 gets colorful

Oct 3, 2008

When Howard Kiyuna dropped his MacBook G3 and broke the CD-ROM drive, it seemed the perfect opportunity to squeeze the guts of the notebook into an unusual casing.  Best thing lying around was a Magnadoodle, and so the Macnadoodle was born. 

It's not perfect; since there was neither space for the keyboard nor trackball, the Macnadoodle needs a couple of external peripherals if you actually want to use it.  I'm no OS X expert, but the prospect of a touchscreen panel seems an obvious workaround.

There's a full worklog in case you have a broken G3 and a spare child's magnetic drawing toy lying around.  Of course, more impressive would be hacking a Magnadoodle to run OS X.
