Makezine_COTM_October-PowerSupplyI like this creative way of packaging up an ATX power supply that Instructables user jtmanders created. He added terminals for 5v, 3.3v, and GND, a power LED indicator, as well as a power switch. Definitely not recommended, jtmanders put jumpers over his fuses, which kept blowing.

Finally, I wonder what it would look like to have the Lego enclosing the actual ATX as well — though it might have had ventilation problems… While Lego is cool, my thought on this project is that you could mount projects directly on the power supply using either the Technic bricks in front or the System studs on top.
