Star Wars R2D2 Computer Case Mod

I am a huge fan of DIY projects. I even have a couple of websites devoted to this sort of thing. As readers here will know, I am also a fan of Star Wars. So when a project like this comes along, it’s going to capture my attention. This is such an awesome project for a custom case for his little boy. I love R2D2 (most people do, right?) and I’ve also noticed that kids really take to the little guy, same as kids of today fall in love with BB-8. There’s something about a little beeping droid that kids can identify with, especially when they often become the hero in a situation. I know I would have LOVED a computer case like this when I was 7.

So this Star Wars R2D2 modded computer case was built by a dad with and for his 7 year old son. He posts how they love to play Battlefront together and how he was his son’s age when “A New Hope” came out. It’s a fun moment between father and son and also a really cool Star Wars fan build so we just have to share it with you.

Check out the images of this build below:

How awesome is that? Seriously, is this guy the coolest dad around or what?

Some commenters are giving him crap about the small details, cord management, case features, etc. but I think that’s because they’re imagining using this themselves. I have a 7-year-old and I can tell you that this case would be more than sufficient for her gaming and computer  needs. If I was building a custom case for myself, I might want a few more bells and whistles but it’s superb for a kid’s case. Well done, dad!
