    Wanted to share my HTPC Gonk heavily inspired by Chris Bartlett's Gonk costume https://www.flickr.com/photos/chrisbartlett/3810976162/in/photostream/

    I simply placed a Node 304 pc inside the Gonk, legs are 2" thick maple dowel set in 2" holes cut in some 2x4's for feet. Acrylic 1/2" base for stability. Top of dowels is a screwed in plywood sheet that the pc sits on. The lighting was done from a molex connection on the PC and a Logisys 12v remote control unit. 470ohm resistors for each candle flicker leds wired in parallel, then a cheap eBay 12v sound activated unit leading to the 12v blue led in the eye. HTPC controlled via remote with Flirc and the lights on/off with the small logisys remote. Changed XBMC skin folder sounds to extra loud Gonk.wav file sounds with Audacity. Gonk!

    Funny. Great idea for making it practical to have in the house.
