Battery powered, steam-belcher with USB 3.0 ports
All aboard the eye-catching promotional stunt as case-maker Lian Li shows off a PC that doubles up as a miniature steam train.
We know it is just a promotional stunt, but that doesn't stop it being rather fun. PC case manufacturer Lian Li, best known for PC cases that look...just like PC cases, has had an interesting train of thought.
The PC-CK101 might not sound exciting, but names can be deceiving. This is a fully working PC that is also a miniature train, complete with steam. On show at Computex Taipei 2012, the 'special edition' case won't be widely available and the company told us they were being manufactured 'on demand'.
The train is powered by a battery that lasts a few hours, letting it choo choo up and down a custom-made track.
A silly gimmick it may be, but it is also a fully working PC case, complete with bays for 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch hard disks and USB 3.0 ports.
If you don't believe us, here's a video of it in action:
