I've seen a lot of PC mods over the years, but none quite like this one. Japanese designer Hiroto Ikeuchi has put together a "secret base" that blurs the line between PC and diorama.
Wired's image gallery shows off some of the finer details, and there are plenty to behold. In addition to including standard desktop parts, the mod incorporates several peripherals, a digital camera, and an army of tiny soldiers. The PC is functional, too, but there's no word on its specifications. The modifications are so extensive that it's hard to get a sense of what lies underneath.
Ikeuchi spent the better part of a year building his secret base, which is now on display at the Ars Electronica Center, an Austrian museum dedicated to the intersection of art, science, and technology. You can see more of Ikeuchi's work on Tumblr, though not all of it is related to PC hardware.
