New Lian-Li computer case let you turns your PC into a mecha spider

Antec first turned heads with its Skeleton open-air case, which exposed DIYers components but helped with air cooling and reduced dust bunnies found in a closed chassis. Now premium case builder Lian-Li is going further out with its new PC-T1R, which not only leaves your system's parts out in the open, but also has four "legs" that let you have a mechanical spider (well, semi-spider) sitting on your desk.

Antec first turned heads with its Skeleton open-air case, which exposed DIYers components but helped with air cooling and reduced dust bunnies found in a closed chassis. Now premium case builder Lian-Li is going further out with its new PC-T1R, which not only leaves your system's parts out in the open, but also has four "legs" that let you have a mechanical spider (well, semi-spider) sitting on your desk.

Of course, you're not building a tricked-out PC with this thing. The PC-T1R can only handle a microATX (mATX) motherboard, and a few other components, along with the power supply. You also get an on/off switch, but unfortunately it only powers your computer, not its legs. Lian-Li says that it will run about 150 euros (about $205), though I wonder how much a skilled hobbyist could put together an erector set version for. Plus, the erector set one could even follow you around from room to room with a motor attached.
