After finishing my Bender project, I just had to do another Futurama casemod I thought about what to do for months and had several good ideas, but finally I fell for Leela.
Age: 25 (at least according to her...)
Occupation: Captain of the Planet Express Ship at Planet Express Delivery Company.
Demeanor: Tough; Determined; No-nonsense; Thoughtful; Serious.
Family: Her parents, Turanga Morris and Turanga Munda.
Grew Up As: An orphan.
Former Jobs: Cryogenic Assignment Officer; Pizza Delivery Girl.
Former Boyfriends/Men: Sean, Alkazar, Chaz, Zapp Brannigan, Fry (during a time-skipping period).
About the casemod
• Made of an exhibition doll (with a new head, arms and legs)
• Web Camera in her eye
• VIA Mini-ITX motherboard inside
• LCD display on her arm.
• Thumbdrive in... her thumb
Mounting the hardware
After I got all the parts in the mail I ordered an exhibition doll, without head, arms and legs.
I had to find out how I could mount all the hardware. I decided to build a "Hardware box" out of sheet metal.
Next I cut a hole in the exhibition doll.
Into this I could just put in the "Hardware box"
Then a little hardware test. Everything fits perfectly.
