Bender, Leela transformed into PCs

Mini ITX - the mod alternative to a girlfriend
Thu Aug 10 2006, 11:23
PRIZE-WINNING CASE modder Jan Erik Vangen has unveiled his latest bizarre Mini ITX case, which must have taken far too long to produce: a full-size model of Leela from Matt Groenig's Futurama cartoons.

Leela has a motherboard, power supply and hard drive in her back, an LCD on her arm, a USB pen drive in her thumb, and a webcam in her eye. She also has fully bendable legs to allow her to sit in a car, crouch on a desk or to sit on her owner's shoulders, legs-a-kimbo.

This is not the first Futurama-themed case that Vangen has built: Leela will be kept company by fellow character “Bender”, the robot.

Unlike Leela, who is largely made from polystyrene foam and latex, Bender was cut and welded out of sheet steel, presumably so that he has a shiny metal ass to bite.

It all goes to show what is possible with a small motherboard, a little bit of imagination, and too much time on your hands. µ
