in Sweden hollowed out his Sega Saturn with his trusty Dremel
and filled it up again with a Mini-ITX motherboard, hard drive
and CD. Sourcing a small PSU proved a problem, so it's externally
mounted for the moment!

1. Everyone needs a Dremel
I stripped my old Sega Saturn console. I used
my dremel :) to cut down all the plastic pieces inside and
made the case flat inside as much as possible.
The hardware inside is now:
* VIA EPIA 800 MHz Motherboard
* 512 MB SDRAM
* 20 GB 2.5" IBM Travelstar Harddisk
* 32x Slim Teac CD-ROM
Unfortunately I don't own a digital camera
so I couldn't take pictures
during the construction process.
I screwed in the motherboard's standoffs under
the motherboard in the other 3 holes so it will stand on them
(For those who don't know there are 4 holes in each corner).
To the left of the motherboard I have
space for the 2.5" harddrive - under the cables.
Next I connected the SDRAM memory plus all
remaining cables to the motherboard.
