Cardboard PC case…

This is really clever, it’s an all cardboard PC case, you pop out all the perforated sections, fold it up and install your PC parts. With millions of PCs thrown away each year, this could potentially be a great way to cut down on the waste. While this one from Japan looks a little dull, there is a lot of art projects that use cardboard boxes, it’s just a matter of time until these look extremely cool and perhaps will be artwork on their own.

    This one pops up on the net almost cyclically. I built a lower tech version of it and it worked really really well. People often get spooked and ask, “Won’t it catch on fire?” To which you remind them that paper burns at 451 degrees, and if your drives or mobo are at 451, they’re dead already. I’ve been runnin’ my cardboard case computer for about a year now and it works just fine.

    Without any shielding, I’m sure it generates a lot of RF interference.
