Hal9000 This is the best case mod ever. I built the HAL9000 based on the computer in the movies 2001: A Space Odyssey and 2010: The Year We Make Contact. I had seen many computers on the web that were no more than black (or painted black) computer cases with the name HAL9000 on them. A friend of mine told me to quit my complaining and build one, so I did. Link. Bonus link, here’s a webcam version!
