The Green Gadgets LP-170 Pico-ITX OEM kit makes an intriguing base for a modding project.
Our recent Green Gadgets LP-170 contest
is now over, and we've picked a winner.
Torgny Karlsson, otherwise known as The_Gnu in our forums, has been selected as the modder to receive this awesome prize. He's already graced Mod of the Month
twice with his ongoing projects ProtoHype
and GET A LIFE
, both of which are hugely popular in our Project Logs
Torgny describes his potential project as 'a "levitating" ball-shaped mini PC. The outer surface of the ball will be covered with different length/shaped aluminium rods, making it look like an exploding ball or a ball covered in crystals.'
He says the mod will feature a polished, cast aluminium case, while rods will provide passive cooling. He plans to use the machine as both an office PC and an 'interactive sculpture.'
Given the unique style of his current projects, we can't wait to see what Torgny creates. We would like to thank Green Gadgets for sponsoring the competition, and also wish the best of luck to Torgny with his new project.
