Hey there,
I got another upadet ready!

The idea I got for the front was this one:

I bought a acrylic plate that has a special foil on the inside. If there is some light behind the foil, it lets the light pass through. If there is no light, the foil acts as a mirror (I got this idea from another build, it was called Prodigy Mirror). That keeps my LEDs from lighting up the whole room, just the inside of my cage :)

Some pics (I already put the upper glass plate on the cage):

The Deskintosh is finished now!
I'm actually typing this post from it :)


I'm gonna do the final shots soon! Waiting for my new camera body to arrive ;)
Anyway, have some teasers:

Anonym323 is right, you should present your build for the context of the month of April.

Yes, definitely one for Mac Mod....

Love the final result - looks like you need more room for your mouse mat though!

By the way, with the copper pipework did you do all the cuts and bends and then get it nickel plated? (sorry if that is covered in the thread but I didn't see it).

Yeah... I need to think of something for the mouse pad... Probably goona attach a bit of rubber under it so that it doesen't move. I have my arm resting on my chair, so in terms of ergonomics it's just fine.

I bought the copper tube already chromed (not nickelated). Mainly because if I wanted it to be nickelated later, it would be pretty expensive, about twice the price as I paid for the chromed. The results would have been much nicer though, at the bends the chrome is sometimes a bit scratched. It isn't covered in the thread ;)

Done, link above ;)
