Over at hack weblog MetkuMods, Jason Marton explains how he created a personal PC or home server inside of a discarded and (obviously) empty whisky bottle. Although it isn’t the first thing one might think of, we have to applaud the creativity and problem solving skills that went into the modification.
The only part of the hack that needed a small amount of professional help was from a glass cutter. After a few failed attempts to use at home tools, he took it in to a local professional to have the holes drilled and cleaned up. Here’s the rest of the materials Jason used for his 2006 hack (you can update accordingly), and you can pick up the assembly details over at MetkuMods:
- 1.5 liter Ballantine’s bottle
- 3.5″ SBC board
- Intel P3 733EB processor
- 256MB notebook RAM
- 40GB notebook HDD
- 60W mini-ITX PSU
- 44 pin mini-IDE cable
Would you consider modding your own home server from an unusual object? Or are you okay with your traditional, home office set up? Sound off in the comments.
