The Matrix: Rebirth 8.0 Case Mod
Hi folks.. Just wanted to share some pics of my latest project, (after the Biohazard: Toxic case Mod) knowing that my website isnt 56k friendly (its a dog to load the pics) i put together some compressed images for da moddin' folks to check out.
If ya like it, please vote for it in TechTV's "Coolest Case Mod Contest" on Thursday and Friday Sept. 25-26! Here:

Conceptually this work represents duality, from the harsh reality of the ‘real world’ and the artificially created dream world known as The Matrix. The left side of the casemod with its reflective surfaces is suggestive of the director(s) creative use of mirrors and reflections. On the right side, we have the real world: dark and bleak, but chillingly purposeful.
Here we have a close up of the egg which holds the animatronic fetus. The fetus is 1.5 inch puppet with a handmade brass skeleton with hinges at the shoulders and hips. While displayed, the egg is filled with a mixture of pure glycerine tinted with red and yellow food dye, and "floating bits" made from cotton balls. When the button is pressed on the control panel, the fetus begins a pre-programmed series of twitches and joint movement. The Puppet II controler board contains a few kilobytes of EEPROM for storing your predetermined servo actions.
Extreme closeup of the right corner of the case, highlighting the Matrix Orbital display w/scrolling Matrix code:
Super close-up of the control panel. Mirrored surfaces were used to symbolize the movie's use of reflections. The "Red Pill" is the power button. "Blue Pill" becomes the reset button. Round button with fetus icon controls the animatronic action of the fetus. The oval indent is a biometric fingerprint scanner, used for system security, file encryption and program access. The small black button is the CDRW/DVD eject and close controller.
