We love a good case mod as much as the next geek but this Doctor. Who T.A.R.D.I.S case is the best one we have seen in a while. The case designer is a British engineer commissioned with the blessing of the BBC. At this stage it’s a prototype and a work in progress and the guy manning the stand at this years gadget show was very excited indeed.
The eagle eyed amongst you will notice that the handles are sized differently; a detail that the unschooled might think is a mistake. It’s not though, they are supposed to be like that and the designer has gone to great lengths to make it as accurate as possible.
The power switch is located in the beacon on top of the TARDIS, push it down and it lights up powering up the PC which weighs a tonne according to the guy on the stand. The case is made of aluminium and steel making it very strong and very heavy.
The front facing USB ports are housed behind the closed door along with the DVD tray, a neat feature we think you’ll agree.
The rear of the case is pretty standard at this stage with each one reportedly being built to order when it finally goes on sale later this year. Buyers will be able to choose from a huge array of specs was there is plenty of space for a beefy set up. At this stage we are unsure on who is actually selling this machine because it is just a prototype – we will bring you more news once we have it.
How much would you love to have this PC on your desk?
UPDATE: I was lucky enough to spot this case at another consumer electronics show. Read my Doctor WHO pc case update for details on price, specs and even more photos.
