I never really see the point of these "put computers in unusual cases" ideas.

Think of it as a challenge.  People make computers in all sorts of shapes just to see if it can be done.  I've seen them shaped like R2-D2, Star Trek devices, dragons, etc.  They can be pretty ingenious.

Looks cool!!! If it is an actual six-switch then that is kind of sad.

Yes, I believe it is an actual 2600 shell.  Let's hope it was a dead one.

That sounds good. Now I can sleep better.

I like to look at systems that have had some kind of mod work done, but then there is the other part of me that sees the original system being changed for all time.

I really like this mod, it is very original!
Don't be surprised, my broken English is legendary!
