Someone has gone and built a PC out of pasta

1 min read

I love movies, I love technology and I love running. But if there is one thing I love more than any of these, it’s food. I love all types of food and am generally not afraid to try anything at least once in my quest to ensure I can avoid hunger. As someone who runs a lot though I inevitably end up turning to pasta because I need the carbs to keep me going and as we all know, pasta is one of the best forms of carbohydrates. Just imagine though that you could combine the powers of pasta and technology to create a computer that is not only useful but tastes good too when you get hungry.

Well now, courtesy of YouTuber Laplanet Arts, there is a way of building a computer that can do just that as he shares how he went and turned hardware from an old Asus Transformer convertible table and build it in a new case made entirely out of lasagna and rigatoni. The type of food that you can finally play with! Not to mention the possibility of an expensive mistake when your hunger takes over and you accidentally bite into it.

I’m not so sure how I feel about this experiment. I love the ingenuity here, but I get hungry just looking at this PC and I’m not sure I would be able to restrain myself if I were to use it. The temptation to place it in the oven and cook it to see what happens will also be quite strong.

I can definitely see a potential future brand here though as computers get built into different types of food dishes. It might be more of a gimmick than anything useful, but in a world where people will embed technology into any little toy or appliance why not put it in things that people really love. And now I’m craving lasagne for lunch.

    Was it gluten-free, or did he use AMD?

    It’s not that unusual. My computer is full of chips.

    If he used AMD and depending on the generation, I would say the pasta probably cooked itself from the inside out.

    Surprised it didn’t overcook itself

    That’s a bit difficult to stomach…
