This has to be one of the most controversial mods we've seen in a long, long time. Wired
reported this morning that eager beaver case modder Kasey McMahon
had succeeded in incorprating a decent rig into a new chassis...formed from a stuffed beaver.
The beaver houses a 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 1Gb of RAM, DVD writer and 160 Gb HDD on a AOpen motherboard somewhere inside its hollowed out corpse.
The mod has provoked strong reactions in the modding community with some admiring the creativity and the humour of placing the 80mm fan in the animals backside, while others condemn the macabre mod as being cruel and depraved.
From a purely technological point of view, we have to admit we're impressed. It's been a while since we had a close look at any forest animal - confined as we are to our desks - but we imagine that it must have been a tight fit.
If you fancy a closer look at the beaver and the process used to build it up then we'd suggest popping over to the official website
before heading to the mental hospital.
