Nerd Alert!: Futurama fan turns characters into PCs

Leela case modI'm sure a small percentage of our readers are computer geeks (it makes sense, since a majority of our writers -- including me -- are computer geeks to varying degrees). And I'm sure a percentage of that percentage have at one time or another attempted to build a "case mod", which is a customized desktop PC case. I've seen case mods made from cigar boxes, model cars, toasters, and all sorts of silly stuff.

But this is a little insane. Seems like one big Futurama fan decided to create case mods in the shape of his favorite characters. First he did Bender, then, taking what he learned from that project, he created a Leela-shaped PC, complete with bendable legs. Ooookay. Even the geek-centric website The Inquirer thought the guy who created these, Jan Erik Vangen, had way too much time on his hands. Here's my question: Is he actually gonna use these as PCs? Neither one exactly fits under a desk. Anyway, just having these life-sized models around my apartment all the time would creep me out, but I guess that's just me.

That's pretty neat ... I wonder how far the Leela casemod actually goes ... could he have a RealDoll Leela soon? ;)

I saw this yesterday on a PC gaming site and it still creeps me out. The Bender one was cool, but this is just freakish.
