SnapStream TV Toaster
I've always wanted to do a case mod that, once
finished, looked nothing like a computer. Finding a dead toaster
oven provided me a spark of inspiration. I took it home the same
night, determined to make a computer unlike any other out there.
Picture with the outside case removed, holes for
the power supply and motherboard were cut and the parts mounted.
Notice how the power supply fan reuses the fan shroud from the
The USB 2.0 and Firewire ports were mounted in
an existing vent. The power cable was re-routed through the factory
grommets. Additionally, the "on" button to the toaster
was wired to the power switch of the PC.
Here, the toaster is running, with the 12" neon
tube adding a little flair to the case. As you can see, it's a
tight fit for all of the components.
