Tech: Mecha-themed Case

WWIII Computer Case Mod by Hiroto Ikeuchi

Japanese designer Hiroto Ikeuchi spent the last year building this astoundingly detailed case mod, which some are describing as having a "World War III" theme.  Ikeuchi calls it his “secret base.” Inspired by mecha anime like Gundam and Macross, every surface is embellished with some military or technical detail.  Soldiers operate forbidding machinery. Mechs are cued, awaiting repairs. The whole thing resembles the art of Wim Delvoye.

 Ikeuchi recently won the 17th Media Arts Festival Entertainment Division Excellence Award for the "fantasy embodied by Plastic" PC diorama. Ikeuchi's work is currently on display at the Ars Electronica Center in Austria.
