Bods Mods’ TRON Lightcycle PC is the bee’s knees

Some say that PC case modding is a form of art, and if you were sitting on the fence requiring more concrete evidence, then surely even the TRON Lightcycle PC from Bods Mods is capable of swaying your mind. This is not a street legal version of the fantasy vehicle in the 3D blockbuster that was screened at the end of last year, as it measures just 40″ long (or should we say, short?), but underneath the hood you will find an ATX motherboard, liquid cooling, and a generous number of blue light strips. The designer actually started from scratch to custom build this unique PC chassis, using SketchUp, Google’s 3D modeling app, alongside tons of foam shaping and Dremel work. Owner Boddaker has this to say about his work :-

I love the TRON movies, and when the new movie came out, I just had to build a PC based on the new Lightcycle design. It would have to be a custom build, so a lot of time was spent in a 3D program, trying to fit the necessary components while keeping the relative size down. The main parts were laser cut from acrylic, providing a solid foundation from which to fabricate other parts such as the front and rear fenders. So far, this has been a fun and rewarding project. Enjoy!

Right now his case is up in the running for the 2011 Casemod Competition organized by Cooler Master, under the Scratch Build category. Do you think he’s got what it takes to win it?
