We’ve all seen mods of gaming consoles to match our favorite games and movies. Halo XBoxes, Metroid Wiis, and Wall-E GameCubes are all great examples of these (just google them, they’re amazing!). But have you ever seen a game-themed PC?
8-Bit Builder, whom you might know as Thorkton on YouTube, has constructed personal computers like you’ve never seen. Not only are they game-themed, but they’re completely and entirely game-shaped! The one featured above is shaped like Link from the Zelda series (obviously). It’s styled in an 8-bit form, similar to the original Zelda, but it features more vivid colors that weren’t available on the NES.
Hit the jump for more info on this case and more!These cases are made out of wooden blocks, glued together with some sort of epoxy. The technical stuff is put in during the case’s production as well as after it’s assembled. The blocks are then covered in a primer and hand painted.
8-Bit Builder is selling these on Etsy for $2,400 USD a pop, not including the extra $200 for shipping costs. It’s one of those things that proves you’re an entirely devoted fan. Guess it would be worth it if you really are crazy about Zelda, huh?
Here’s a “the making of” video that he has put on YouTube to show us how it’s all built.
Would you be willing to buy one of these? Maybe you’d like to offer the artist a new design idea? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
