The matrix part is actually pretty cool!

The Optimus Prime PC Case Mod (Extremetech)

"This Optimus Prime PC mod is made out of aluminum from ranges of 14 ga to 1/4" material and formed and tig welded. It stands 6'10" tall while in transport mode. When I was designing this PC I wanted it to transform in some way or another. It is a Transfomer, what kind would it be if it did not transform. So, I made it transform into a much smaller desktop form. The hands are from casts I made from my own hands. I thought it would be cool to have something of me built into the mod. I used a slideout motherboard design for the MB mounting and external PSU mounted in a custom enclosure mounted on the back. It also has a 7" LCD sreen mounted in the waist to watch movies or such. I made the Autobot Matrix center out of a solid piece of brass then milled it on my lathe to accept a 7" blue plasma disk and mounted on a 1/4" aluminum frame and polished it to a mirror shine...

I started this mod almost a year ago and have over 300 hours into this project. Now that it is finished, I am really happy that I made it. I havent met anyone that can say they have a Optimus Prime PC in their house. Hehe.

Geekdom devotion can both simultaneously amaze and shock me.

I cannot imagine devoting 300 hours to anything in my personal life other than investing in home remodeling or something along more permanent lines.

Mad crazy props to John Magnus. That's some crazy shit there.
