Desktop Computer Fitted Inside a Remote-Controlled Abrams Tank

May 16, 2011
Skip Station has built a desktop computer in the shape of a M1A1 Abrams tank.

The device is 32-inch long, 12-inch wide and 11-inch high.

In order to build this PC, guys from Skip Station had to do a lot of hard work.

To be able to fit a fully functional computer inside the tank they cut a hole on the other side of the toy.

Thus they managed to fit the computer's mini ITX motherboard. It would be interesting to note that the motherboard was placed between the tracks.




A very nice addition to the tank is the Green LED lights mounted on the sides. The tank really looks nice when the LEDs illuminate the tracks of the machine.

At the front you will be able to find an SSD and laptop disc drive.

However, the most impressive feature of the tank is that it can be remotely controlled. This means that the user can play with it just like with a normal remote-control toy. The tank can even fire rounds like the Abrams tank. The device fires pellets from its main gun.
