A DIY Kinetic PC Case

Combining function with designey-ness, last year manufacturer CyberPower unveiled this PC case with automated cooling vents:

This Kinetic Series concept never made production. But it did have an impact on a guy named Robert, the inventor behind Ideal Idea Creations, who was inspired to design his own kinetic PC case.

Robert’s focus was on expressiveness rather than cooling functionality. He came up with a design featuring hexagonal elements that would protrude from the front of the case in an undulating fashion.

Undertaking the actual build, “would be a lot easier,” he wrote, “if I knew anything about mechanical engineering.”

Nevertheless, he was able to produce a working prototype:

If you’re curious as to how he did it, or want to scan through the required steps, the full build video is below.
