Think you’re looking at some TV from the 50s or the 60s? Think again. What you’re looking at here is a PC case mod made by Swedish artist Love Hulten, who will be happy to hear that you thought it was a retro device.
Love Hulten calls this the Sputnik 0667. It really does take you way back when computers actually looked like that, like the Commodore PET that has the keyboard built in the unit itself.
The keyboard and mouse surface can be folded when not in use, and an old-school ventilation system, which is seen on older electronics, can be found at the back. It has a Gigabyte GA-H55N-USB3 Mini-ITX motherboard running an Intel Core i3 550 3.2GHz CPU with a GeForce GTX 460 GPU, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive.
The artist refers to the Sputnik as a “concept computer,” and said that it the computer is “combined with the beauty of arts and crafts, inspired by the 20th century and old hi-fi.”
The artist even made advertisements for the case to showcase what they would look like if they wereavailable back then. An ad also features a man wearing a goldfish bowl helmet, saying “Bye baby! I’m going space hunting!”
