Here is the first post for my entry for the coolermaster 2013 casemod or as called TOWER category in the competition.

WORLD RECORD CASEMOD

THE WORLDS LARGEST FULLY FUNCTIONAL COMPUTER MOUSE.

This build is called D.C.M.M. COLOSSUS and is a fully fledge computer mouse, just about a hundred times larger. It is s recognised world record and is the first of its kind. It is not just a huge mouse with which we can use the buttons and scroll wheel and move it around and so forth, but its also a full fledge PC. when moved around on it equally colossal mousepad i made, the cursor pointer we see on the screen is generated by the PC which is housed in its hold. The VGA signal is sent wireless. If I plus its usb key into a differnet PC then it can be used just like any regular mouse with a 1.5 volt battery. Otherwise when in PC mode it needs just the 1 wire. It also hold an electronically extractable webcam and atiny keyboard and loudspeakers. Apart from that it has two smokers on the top. The whle design concept should imitate and depict the sensation of speed and acceleration. It is 21.5 Kilos of muscle steel and sex appeal and it measures 98x28x68cm in size.

more to come. :D

time to actually glue in the cherry mouse. took this one because its nice and flat.

here you can actually see the mouse mechanism, will all be aone module, which can be atken out and placed in. it would actually work alone without the whole construction, but technology needs a housing that looks good
f45.jpg
w mid wheel as transmission to change the scroll direction back to the right way and so that the real little scroll wheel always has contact with the clickable hence movable huge one. works great

es sieht aus wie batmobil :D

Warum hast du Scharnier nicht auf der Innenseite fur cleaner look?

thanks mate, stimmt batmobil hat auch teils model gestanden.

die scharniere sind von ein alte nähmaschine und ich wollte das mann sie sehen kann. warts ab, mit farbe schauen die toll aus.

das sind scharniere mit 3 teile also 2x biegeteile, bleiben aber so nicht, more to come. :D

you should really consider resizing your pictures because it is almost unwatchable. you completely lose what is going on in the pictures.
