Can you turn this dinky bit of kit into a desirable piece of modding handiwork?
Green Gadgets and bit-tech
have teamed up to offer you the chance to win a Green Gadgets LP-170 Pico-ITX OEM kit, which is the same kit that forms the foundation of the Green Gadgets LP-170 PC
The kit includes a tiny Pico-ITX Commell LP-170 motherboard, which packs an Intel Atom D525 processor and all the wires and cables needed to wire up the board. To see exactly what comes in the kit, check out the video at the bottom of this post.
So what do you have to do to win this compact piece of kit? Well, we’re looking for a modder to take this dinky board and do something creative with it. The rest is up to you; the only limitation is that whoever wins the board must agree to post a project log of the resulting mod in our own modding forums
All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning the board is simply tell us, in 50 words or less, what you would do with the board if you won and how the resulting mod would be used. To enter, send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we’ll pick a winner in due course. You can take your time to think up an idea, though, as the competition doesn’t close until midnight on Tuesday 12 April.
Bear in mind that it won’t necessarily be the most outlandish or ridiculous suggestion that gets the nod; we’ll also be looking for practicality and suitability when picking through your ideas. If you say you’re going to send it to the moon, you'd better hope you can convince us it’s possible in 50 words or less. You're also free to provide mock ups or CAD sketches with your entry, although they're not essential.
Meanwhile, for those of you wondering just what’s possible with a Pico-ITX motherboard, we’ve included a couple of shots of the beautifully formed Level Eleven Pico-ITX produced by our very own Jeffrey Stephenson (slipperyskip on the forums).
Are you up for the challenge? Have you wanted to experiment with a Pico-ITX build for a while now? Let us know your thoughts in the forums
