Coca-Cola Computer

Featured
This is a PC case built out of Coca-Cola merchandise. The computer's components came from a Dell Dimension 8500. If you attempt to do this on your own, be extra careful when cutting the aluminum cans, the edges are incredibly sharp. The computer is slightly exposed to the outside, but I use the computer for leisure activities, so my recommendation is that you use a computer that you have laying around the house to do this project.

You will need:
An old PC
Styrofoam
Coca-Cola Cans(20 Cans) if you want to do more on the top or use glass bottles that is fine to.
Coca Cola bottle carrying Case.
High Speed dremmle
Spray Glue
Wire Mesh
Screwdrivers
Thirst
Round File

Step 1: Empty Can's/Prep Computer

You can do what I did, or you can empty the cans into a large pitcher. I drank about 30 cans of Coca-Cola in 3 days, my kidney's haven't been the same since. I personally recommend just puncturing a hole into the can and emptying it. Puncturing it first makes cutting easier in the long run. Once you have finished emptying cans, place them to the side and get your computer parts.

If you are going to use an older computer, unplug it before you strip it of its parts. From the Dell Dimension I took everything out of the case except for the Floppy drive and placed it to the side.

I am a very big Coke fan as is my Brother-in-law. He is a Mac guy, I am a PC guy. I think I just won the war as to which one is better! Thank you.......... P.S. I think glass bottles would look even cooler!

Yeah they would def be cool, I plan on making one with them eventually, It's just going to take alot of time to cut the glass.

Just think of how cool it will look if you wire up your computer with all of the fun internal components that light up. That will be very cool through the bottles. The other thing would be to work in liquid cooling and have a Coke colored liquid so it looks like it is Coke cooked. Part of the cooling system could be having the liquid pore into a bottle so it looked like a Coke bottling line.

Did you actually SET out to do this intentionally or did you just happen to have a 12 pack case full of empty coke cans laying around doing nothing?
