ARMAGEDDON, THE SUM OF ALL FEARS

4 posts in this topic

ARMAGEDDON, THE SUM OF ALL FEARS,

Hi, everyone. Here is my Scratch build entry for the 2017 World Series.

In 2012, wehen the media was spreading all this news about the worlds end, I decided to build a machine that would intervene axactly that. :-)

Its called ARMAGEDDON, THE SUM OF ALL FEARS, and is indeed the mother of all desk mods.

I didnt want to just make yet another glass top desk here. thats been done 100s of times. So I concentrated on making it looking lethally

capable of intervening an imminent ARMAGEDDON.

This gigantic foldable and transportable deskmod is fully automated with a retractable keyboard which can be retractaed into the table top and is hence flush.

The loud speakers can be taken off without cables, the webcam can be tilted as well as driven 70cm left or right just by a knob and switch, depending on which monitor

you are using for i.e. skype. The 2x monitor can be lowerde by just flicking a switch and recede into the table back.

On top there are two hidden covers which hold a push button flip out USB 7xport arry and a tablet holder with charging power ports for cell phones.

apart from that it has the all important hidden energy drink holder and headphones holder and connectors in the front too. and so os much more. 

 

its all water cooled and consists of an ASUS Maximus VII Impact and I7 processor, 4 Angelbird 128gb SSDs, a DVDRW, 16gigs of Hyperx ram and its own built in

Creative labs cambridge 2.1 subwoofer system.

 

The ARMAGEDDON weighs approx 75 Kilos and I have painted it in such a way that it looks like old rusty forged and cast iron.

actually its made to 99 % wood. The paintjob makes people ask me whether I need a fork lift truck to transport it.

 

The great thing about this concept is that its totally compact when, retract the keyboard, fold the legs in, lower the monitors down and then flip the table top down.

this way the whole monstrous colossal desk with all its extras can be transported through any doorway and set up some where else.

It won the German Casemodding Championship in 2 categories this year at the Gamescom in Cologne for Best scratch build and best electro mechanics.

its been to museums and exhibitions and is now going to the swiss comic con in Basel. I am very proud of this build which took me 4 years to complete.

Like I said, it took me 4 years while making other projects too, to get this one finished so you can imagine I have 100 times more pictures than just these here.

But I hope they somehow show  what an ordeal it was building this monstrosity.

The next post will show you the Coolermaster parts integration and hardware and of course then the final pics and videos show all the animated and motorised parts.

mod on guys, I hope you like it.

Stunningly excellent woodworking there, good sir.  I have looked over every picture thus far, with complete admiration.  That is a fantastic creation and I cannot wait to see the final product!

thanks bob, am glad yopu like it.

so guys as promised, here are some final pics.

after finishing this mod, i went on to defend my german casemodding title in the scratch build category and also the cases on the move category. so in other words the building period of almost 5 years and all together 2500 hours really paid off.

my most extent build so far as the amount of work is concerned.

it has been exhibited at teh worlds largest computer museum in paderborn and is now going to the comic con in basel switzerland with all my other 30 mods too.

after that it will find its place as my personal desk in berlin, straight after taking part at the annual modding masters in friedrichshafen in germany.

And finally, a short summary of the features. Even though I dont really know where to start.

The ARMAGEDDON is a fully collapsible transportable computer desk. Its legs can be folded in, the table top swung down and then it can be moved through any doorway.

It has a  a motorised diagonally sinkable keyboard, a touchpad, a subwoofer under the desk with the left and right swivel satellites on both sides. The 2x Video7 19" monitors can be elevated via a linear motor and appear from behind the case.

The monitors are situated between the desk and the main computer hardware panel which makes up the back of the whole build. 'The top of the monitor carriage holds 2 unfoldable and concealabe lights and a camera carriage where the camera can be moved by switching the motor left or right dependimng upon which monitor one wants to show the picture. The top left of the table top has a modified VCR tape holder which can be be button released and shows the 7x USB Ports hub with activating switches.

 

It is based upon:

Intel I7

Asus Maximus Imact ITK Mainboard

2x Corsair 8gbyte DDR3 Rams

4x 128Gbyte Angelbird SSDs

Asus DVD RW Drive

Creative Labs Cambridge Theater Suvwoofer 2.1 System

An ATI Radeon 9500 Grafikcard

A fully self made Thermaltake based combination of soft and hard pipes watercooling system

with a PAcific CPU Block and D5 cylindric reservoir

And Finally a V1000 Coolermaster PSU to power the whole system

here are some videos of making some of the motorised and special parts

 

 

Here is a portray made by a TV channelö here where you can see some of the Armageddon while it was still under construction.
