    wonko, did you even bother to read the article, the how-to, or even look at the picture?
    its just the motherboard, completely intact

    Well, this must be the hardest how-to ever…
    step 1:
    put the motherboard on the lightbox
    TADA! done…

    Makes me wonder what other computers had translucent motherboard material…

    Hehe no wonder the Amiga came in a case with foil lining.
    No ground plane on that motherboard. I’ll bet the logic signals are noisy as all getout.

    Everything made now is a 4 layer PCB except for the cheapest PCI expansion cards. Think $5 nic or serial port.

      It was not lined with foil.It was made out of metal – I’d like to see you wrap some food in it !!
