    Hi everyone

    So im planning a Scratch build for the future but Id quite like to build my PC inside a random object, I own a large Coke can (60/70cm high) and I may use that but I have many more ideas such as:

    Tool Box
    Microave
    Printer
    Treasure Chest

    Anyone else got any awesome ideas ?

    Thank you (Best idea gets a Cookie)

    Books are not a viable option tbh, unless you use something to drastically harden the paper area to allow drilling and what not.

    A human? :worried:

    How about a PC in a PC? Or a PC in a dolls house? The lights flashing inside could look epic. Or even better, that thunderbirds island set you can buy?

    ... inside a random object... i saw one who built a matx build behind a radiator in his living room. Flightcase / ammocase is a classic.
    What about a subwoofer enclosure or if its an itx build, the bottom of a floor lamp and then replace the build with a mini projector :)

    That's a really bad idea unfortunately. Fridges and freezers are not designed to do away with as much heat as all the components require, especially not over a longer time.

    He's planning a few serious mods to the compressor unit, just using the base unit of the freezer as its got amazing seals + air insulation all around it.

    The giant cookie thing has potential. Just set it up on edge. Anything absurd and Dada will work. -probably why there have been so many toilet-PCs made...
    I've been thinking about sewing a bunch of old clothes together and bonding them with epoxy into a case. I think it would be a riot to collect panties and laminate(encrust:lol:) a case with them.
    ...The collection part would be tough if you are not a rock star.

    -Giant spam tin?
