Tiny living room in a PC casemod


This Russian casemodder included a dollhouse-scale living room in an elaborate PC case... Presumably it's where the computer elves go to relax after a hard day's tallying up spreadsheets.

  1. There was an old Warner Brothers cartoon that posed the question about how the light in the refrigerator gets turned off and on when the door is opened. A cutaway view showed a little man coming out of a door in the back of the fridge, waddling out to flip the light switch, then retreating back through the door.

    Apparently, he’s now living just down the hall, in the computer!

  2. “I know some folks spend their entire lives buried in their computers, but, really…” (Though having spent a fair amount of in some huge machine rooms, I personally sorta like the roach-in-a-radio aesthetic.)

    Nice touch, nicely executed.

    Though I don’t think modern computers still run on elves. I may have this wrong, but seem to remember breathless announcements about their now containing “sophisticated microchimps.”

    (If anyone does something with that idea, I’d greatly appreciate a credit and a copy.)

  3. Pretty nice summation of my life right now, really… and strangely Kafka-esque;
    “One morning, as Robert was waking up from anxious dreams (induced, no doubt, from hours on various websites), he discovered that his apartment had been changed into a Pentium 4 computer running Ubuntu. He lay on the processor and…”

  4. Awesome. The lamp reminds me of “This Must Be The Place” from Talking Heads’ “Stop Making Sense.

  5. I am reliably informed that the furniture and fittings are from Swedish dollshouse manufacturer Lundby – dating from the late 70’s – early 80’s.

    Don’t ask me how I know – just don’t…

  6. Thanks so much for all the great compliments!

    Yup, I’m pretty sure those are Lundby. I recognize the name. The furniture came from my Mom’s dollhouse collection. The motherboard is an MSI.

    I’ve got all these ideas now for another photoshoot!

    Thanks again everyone!
