Mods: This Mac mini is a Trooper!

We've seen a bunch of Mac mini mods over the years. And sometimes, it's the simple ones that just bring a smile to your face. This is the case of Patrik B's first Mac mini project. He's taken a Mac mini and cleverly incorporated it inside a Star Wars Clone Trooper helmet. Then matched it up with some speakers from LaCie to finish everything off. I think you will agree, the overall look is rather striking.

"Gutted a Clone trooper helmet from Toys'r'us (My first dremel job). The Mac mini fits more or less perfectly. The hard part was to cut the visor for the slot-loading dvd, but it turn out to be the best feature. Problem is the helmet is apparently wifi proof so I had to add a bigger antenna to the router. The LaCie USB speakers are a perfect match - and cheap."



Nice job Patrik, thanks so much for sharing!
