first_imgTrain buffs, behold. One of the most unique and captivating PC cases ever to hit the market has been introduced, and it’ss shaped like an old-fashion train. It isn’t just a uniquely crafted shape, though. This baby can also move up and down a specialized railroad track, and shoot steam out of the front of the engine.In other words, it is the perfect combination of geek and…well, geek. The case, officially known as the Lian Li PC-CK101, has a slim optical drive bay and one 120mm fan in the back. It can hold mini-ITX motherboards and contains two USB 3.0 ports on the side of the engine.The choo-choo case has room for three 2.5-inch hard drives. In total, the aluminum case measures 185 x 258 x 515mm. To get a CK101 for the train enthusiast in your life will set you back $229. Unfortunately, that is the boring version that doesn’t move. The much more captivating Premium version, seen in the video below, will sell for $379.Could this be a response to the trend of traditional PCs being replaced by the more exciting iPads and Android tablets? If so, hopefully other manufacturers will follow in Lian Li‘s footsteps.For example, it would be pretty cool to see computer cases wrapped inside remote control quadrocopters, lawn chairs, or Bea Arthur action figures. Then again, maybe this is just a cool one-off product designed for a niche market and nothing more. Either way, you can’t complain about a PC case that symbolizes old transportation technology from the days before PCs.Lian Li, via Technaboblast_img read more
