Post Posted: Mon Mar 21, 2005 8:31 pm   Post subject: Microwave Comp Reply with quote Back to top  

I had the idea of building a comp into an old microwave. One with a ~7" squarish window, that could be busted out and replaced with a small lcd screen. Mount the mobo inside the "chamber" for lack of a more technical term. Then, if you need to get to the mobo, simply open the door! Tear out the guts of the microwave and hide the psu away somewhere in the innards, then get a small electric bell and wire it as the system speaker for added authenticity. It may be difficult to do, and i don't have the funds for it, but someone else could have a hayday with this Very Happy

Use a P4 Prescott, then you'll still be able to use it to cook food.

If it's new enough to have a LCD display, you should consider removing it and replacing it with a dot matrix display. At the very least turn the buttons on the front into the power and reset buttons.

Laughing Awesome idea! haha to Intel! Now if only you could get it so it could still rotate something inside and beep when a workunit is finished.
