Ok, I had an idea (thanks to Kookie Wookie) to create a small contest based on the idea of a Shoebox PC project that my friend and I started yesterday. The challange is this: Find a free (or cheap as chips) PC that has a low power consumption, and then make a case for it. Nothing special, you may think. Not so! The real challange comes in the way you package the PC! It must be compact, be made from off-the-shelf parts (or as wacky thing as possible) that can be gotten for free, (in my case, a shoebox), and then pack your PC into it! The aim is that it should be either unobtrusive or terribly obvious (and cool looking), and originality is as important as creativity! You dont have to be a CAD modeler to do this either! If you can throw together something completely out-of-this-world in an afternoon, then you might have a better chance of winning than someone who has put weeks of work into it! Remember, the aim is to have everything free, so you can't use an OS that you've paid for; I'm installing Ubuntu Linux on mine, but anything else can be used if its free! (even FreeDOS!). The PC is meant to be free as well, and should be internet capable, so you can post your project off of it! (but dont worry about the screen, mouse or keyboard being free, those are optional) UPDATE: Finishing date is 17th of August, so be ready by then! Now, the prize, funnily enough, is ALSO free! (Dont worry, I can't win it) You get a cookie, and a Thanks (for being cool). Here's a link to my project, which is the Shoebox PC; you can post your project either in this thread, or in the Projects section of the forum. Dont forget to include pictures and desctriptions of how you made it and where you got your stuff! http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?p=887635#post887635 Contestants, start thinking!
