Dave you're a genius.

Keep out of reach of children
For the record, those are pentagons on the mouse and keyboard, not pentagrams.
As always, awesome mod! Keep up the great work!
Indeed a nice mod and a good log of it too.
Love the idea of using foam to keep the ball in shape, simple, effective, brilliant!
Also the placing for the activity and power leds is great, once again, sort of obvious but still not =]
Like Zero82z', the "pentagrams" caught my eye too.
A few questions:
The things that really bothered me was the way the grass was left on the corners of the base, was left wondering that did you cut the excess grass off from the corners or not - because those aren't visible in the final "gallery"? another one was the wiring, did you really leave the wires under the base just "hanging" there?
All in all, great and interesting project! Looking forward to reading the remaining Creative mod logs.
Although an awesome project overall it lacks real polish that would make it outstanding from all views. I think you should have used the board with the off board connectors and mounted a plated into the rear skin of the ball, that way it would more or less close up that rear ugly opening and give it more of 360 appeal. I also agree about trimming the corners on the grass.
I dunno if it's possible but what if you had used the I/O headers version of the mobo and move all the connectors to the shoes. Then only one cable (a fat one) would have come out of the ball, and made it movable.
Just a thought.
Uh..., that's a soccer ball, not a football.
Over in the UK, soccer is football...
Great mod, suprised it doesn't overheat with all the foam in there. Kudos for making it look so good
Isn't it football for everybody except Americans?
As far as I know, yes.
That's incredible - really
and just a note: it's known as soccer in Australia too.. Football here is Aussie Rules... or "Aerial Ping Pong" as we locals like to call it.
British Game = British Name.
Anything else is just a lie.
