As insane Steampunk PC case mods go, this Frankenstein machine by D. Mattocks will take some beating. Standing almost eight feet tall, and bristling with copper piping, vintage gauges and glass indicator lights from an old navy ship, it's not so much a computer as a tribute to H.G.

The vent was salvaged from an old church, and now acts as the air inlet for the water-cooling system. Meanwhile everything is backlight with green cold-cathode tubes, which manage to make the Frankenstein Computer look even more ominous. Happily one of the gauges does actually show the computer temperature, though there's probably not a steam blow-off valve.

Well it finally happened, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 was fit into a Playstation 3 case. This May be able to fool your friends into thinking you had enough money for you, but look at it twice and you will see that there is something very strange about it. For one there is a big hole in the front.
Vaja has become the next case manufacturer to add an iPhone nano category to its online listings, further fuelling the rumor that Apple are planning a compact version of the existing iPhone 3G. The option is listed, as with XSKN, alongside the two existing iPhone models, but currently links only to an email update registration page.
