Casemod adds a projector

Meet the Sensei, a modified Lenovo all-in-one desktop PC with a projector built in.

When Lenovo had its recent Mod Contest, modder Boddaker submitted this gem: A Lenovo A700 IdeaCentre PC with an HD projector built in underneath. The A700 itself is an all-in-one desktop PC with a 23-inch widescreen LCD and slot-loading Blu-ray drive. The projector is attached to the bottom of the unit, so the whole thing can be used as a chalkboard projected onto a wall, among countless other things.

In order to create the mod, Boddaker had to first take apart the A700 and attach the projector. This involved such ingenuity and a PCI-Express x8 extension cable, and it required making room in the A700 by replacing the HD with a SSD, and moving some of the device ports (or taking them out all together).

All in all this is a wonderful idea for a mod, and one I can really see going mainstream. Kudos to Boddaker for making the top 4, hope to see many more interesting mods in the future!

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
