    Orac³: The best MOD project I ever saw

    At Bit-Tech There's a modding project by a person named Gnome of building himself his own ORAC computer. For people who doesn't know what ORAC is or was; ORAC was the computer from the Blake's Seven Sci-Fi series in the early eighties by the BBC.



    Anyway this person builded his ORAC over a time of a year and is finally finished. But you should look and judge for yourself:

    Orac³ Part 1

    Orac³ Part 2

    Orac³ Part 3

    Orac³ Part 4

    Orac³ Part 5


    greets,
    Paul
    believe in yourself !

    Yah I think I saw an earlier version where he has working on that box with the metal flex-conduit covered wires coming out of it. It really looks nice now.

    Wow. I wish I had the time and money to work on a project like that. That's a really nice looking case. He did a good job on it.

    That is a nice mod. I like the looks of it.. but I don't think I would want it my self. It would be too hard to explain to people why your computer looks like that :P

    Wow... it's taken me ages to look through all those articles!! I read the first one nearly all the way through, but then just skipped through the pictures in the last few! It looks great.
