    Usually i’m the second to do everything I see on the net but… this time I was the first… back in July I did exactly the same

    BTW X-Raying Macbooks is not a very good idea, so don’t try this at home.

    I used a different setup, we didn’t chemically process the film, it went into a digital system (CR), so only took about 45 seconds to get the image. The image on the site I linked is a bad jpeg version (I have raw dicom format), plus we only shot it at low dosage because I’m really not stupid enough to hit my brand new (at the time) mac with a decent dosage to get a good image. :)

    How hard would it be to take that x-ray and make it into a laser etching for the cover?
