A geek who is evidently too full of beans has built a case modification that incorporates a coffee machine into his computer.
Nick Pelis explained that he customised his PC as a way of making it unique.
"Everyone has done black cases with blue lights. Everyone has installed case windows, cut blowholes, and maybe even installed a baybus. The modding community needs fresh, new ideas, and I believe I may have created one," he said.
Pelis realised that he drank a lot of coffee and spent a lot of time at his computer.
"I'd already gone through several coffee pots when it suddenly struck me: why not integrate a coffee maker into a computer case and get the best of both worlds?" he said.
Pelis is one of many US DIYers who modify their computers by making improvements to the case. He has posted details of the process here.
He explained that he was concerned about space requirements, as fitting the coffee maker and the computer components into a case required a bit of shoehorning.
"Ultimately I settled on the InWin Q500 case due to its full tower size, simplicity, high-quality steel construction and low cost, and a $15 White-Westinghouse 4-cup coffee maker from the local K-Mart," said Pelis.
His only regret was there was not enough room inside the Q500 for a larger coffee machine.
