UPDATE: Curtis sent in this info: "This "Elephant Ride-In" took place in June 2006 in Ayutthaya, Thailand. The elephants and their mahouts, who work the tourism trade in the historical former Siamese capital city, were being treated to a free screening of the Thai computer-animated feature "Khan Kluay", which is the story of a young elephant that eventually grows up to be the war elephant of King Naresuan.

Soviet TV receiver PC case mod
Peteris Tenisons sent us pictures of the case mod, made from a Soviet TV receiver REKORD, 1961.
Two computer specialists constructed the basics -
AMD Athlon(tm) 64x2 Dual Core Processor3800+
Kingston 1024MB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 6100nForce
Creative Audigy Soundblaster 7.1
Behold TV M6
Samsung DualHinge 17" TFT LCD monitor
A sound engineer from Netherlands installed a custom-built sub-woofer and speakers with motion sensitive cream-coloured LEDs to imitate the flickering of TV lamps. And a jeweler was invited to polish up on exterior details and create a power switch in front of the monitor by using the REKORD metal logo.
