Liquor Bottle Case Mod is Tres Geeky
Calling all booze geeks! Now you can have your booze and process with it too by modding your liquor bottles into PC cases. Enterprising drunk Janos Martin teaches you how to turn a bottle of Ballantine's into a computer. And the fact that he documents the entire process for posterity is pretty danged noble.
Of course, he doesn't really outline the part that really interests us, the actual emptying of the bottle, but the case mod stuff is pretty cool too, we guess.
I already had a powerful computer setup so I wanted something more quiet, small and low power consumptioning to function as a basic home server. I love to tinker with hardware etc. so I wanted to make something quite unique for a case. I have seen many nice and creative cases before but none of them were made out of a bottle. In November I bought an industrial 3.5" SBC board (with Socket370). For the project I selected a 1.5 litre Ballantine's bottle for case. That was the proper size and shape for the task at hand.
