Beautiful Digg Hardware


The Digg case mod is a one-off project by Computer-Choppers.com finished in April 2007. It was modeled from the Digg.com logo (popular social news website) and has been used as a show-computer piece for most of the summer at various computer events in the northwest. It has just about 30 hours of use on it in total.

The system will be featured in a future issue of CPU magazine later this year or the start of 2008.

The case is fabricated from the ground up using MDF (fiberboard) and has been finished with a blue pearl custom paint job. The letters on the front of the case light up in blue and can be switched off and on at any time. A newsreader under the lettering takes the top news stories from Digg.com and displays them on the front of the case.
