    Sorry, it's not my work, so I won't take credit for it.
    But I do want one ;)

    I've seen this from time to time, not with an original, (they're generally considered collectors items) but with a color classic.

    I have a color classic in my closet and I'm toying with the same thing, but given the money needed to buy the parts, I've not taken the plunge

    I have an old Mac at home and it still works. Can't remember the model number right offhand, but I picked it up at a church rummage sale a couple of years ago for $10 (JEALOUS?).

    I've been trying to figure out if I should make some kind of project out of it, or just leave it as-is (since it does work). I wish the OP had posted a more detailed parts list, to give me some idea of how much this project cost.

    Not sure what the point there is. Good luck finding a single commercial for an electronic device that DOESN'T feature animation instead of actual sequences. I won't hold my breath...

    pretty cool it's kind of like stuffing the innards of a mule inside of a mastadon and making it live again. Probably the coolest part is no one would suspect a thing and if the house got burgularized they would probably leave it LOL

    You could easily fit an entire mac mini inside one of those
