"Recompute" A full PC case made solely out of cardboard
A full PC case made solely out of cardboard

I did NOT build this, or have any involvement.
Article sourced from engadget.

I've sure you've thought about making a computer case out of cardboard, right? The "Recompute" is an entire desktop computer case... built out of cardboard! Sure, the internals are standard off the shelf PC components but from the outside it looks like nothing we've ever seen, and that's really saying something for a desktop industry that's tried just about every look twice.

Fragile and noisy seem to spring to mind when thinking of a case made from cardboard, you'd expect that the company would have ironed out these issues when building the thing - a drop test is not recommended. It's nice that you can open the whole real panel and get to the internals, but it's still a bad first impression.

Also, while there's the typical fan noise from the computer's power supply, the sound seems slightly deadened (or at least lowered in pitch) by the enclosure, and happily the air flowing out stays nice and cool.

The builders claim to be addressing the entire life cycle of the machine, claiming it has "green" aspects.

It's still pretty cool, none the less.

Knock that thing over, see what happens. Go on I DARE you. Looks pretty. I give it that. But the space inside is a little small as well. Don't like that.

umm, possible. I think it's lined with metal inside but metal conducts heat, on to the cardboard.

Speaking of hazards, are instructions to make plastic explosive out of bleach allowed on this website?

To be honest i have no idea what they'd be categorised under. Until Interpol contact me with an arrest warrant, i suppose you could make instructions, for EDUCATIONAL purposes only ofcourse.
