Default [DIY]Serious Metalworking-Russian builds a WALL-E Cabinet

Some Russian got inspired by the WALL-E Robot and decided to build a CPU Case like one. Even has a digital screen like the robot.

Serious metalworking, I must say.

It took him reportedly 18 days to build it.

This explains why [pics of the process]:-

Wall-E building is quite popular.

Infact there are even entire forums devoted to building em!

Heres a photostream from one of them : Flickr: The Wall-E Builders' Photostream

Reminds me a bit of the work Ben Heck does in turning consoles into portable versions.

Don't think so. But there's a wire like thing joining the two eyes.....wonder if it's just meant for looking or if it serves some purpose.
