"A room without books", said Marcus Tullius Cicero, "is like a body without a soul".
"And a living room without a PC", said twenty-first-century Cicero namesake Marco Venezia (probably), "is a potential home cinema lacking DivX support".
To solve both problems, Marco fabricated the Encyclomedia: a Mini-ITX-based DVD/DivX player squeezed into a set of imitation textbooks. The books were originally polystyrene but have been hollowed out to fit an EPIA M10000 with DVD player and 40GB hard disk. The result is a living room PC that offers modern entertainment without sacrificing traditional style, and perhaps more importantly, doesn't make Marco's mum too angry...
