If you got a kick out of the steampunk-inspired “problem light” we posted a while back, you’ll enjoy this similar monitor mod. After ditching the boring black plastic case, this guy discovered that the whole monitor was encased in stamped sheet steel. A little metallic-gold Rustoleum plus some brown Krylon crystal color — and a lot of scavenged brass components from clocks and other stuff — yield what you see above.
Oh yeah, he made a kick-ass keyboard, too. Check out his site for detailed instructions and pictures.
(Thanks, BT, for the tip!)
