In the 1940s, people tuned into regal radios that were as much a piece of furniture as they were a gadget. So when computer designer Jeffrey Stephenson decided to build a small, high-end gaming PC, he took design cues from a popular Canadian radio model, The Addison. Stephenson crafted an intricate paean to old-fashioned radio aesthetics so he could play his favourite modern games.
The results are beautiful:
Stephenson built the machine from the inside out, starting with a simple frame and computer parts and turning it into a working gaming PC that doubles as an object of beauty.
This is what the project looked like in much earlier stages:
Here are the specs Stephenson lists:
