Elephant Ride-in

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. This link has a bit more."

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
wireless keyboard&mouse

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.
