Yes, that is correct, you can build an aquarium computer. It might not be exactly what you think. You can’t put any fish in it since it’s filled with mineral oil instead of water, but an aquarium is used for the computer case and it looks like the internals of the computer are submerged in the aquarium.
A company named Puget Systems is marketing aquarium computer kits. From Market Watch:
Puget Systems (www.pugetsystems.com), a boutique integrator of custom PC systems for enthusiasts, gamers, consumers and SMB markets, today announced the launch of the Puget Systems ‘Do it Yourself’ Aquarium PC kit, enabling personal computer enthusiasts to replicate their own version of an aquarium-style PC, a technique made widely visible by Puget Systems on YouTube. With over 1 million views online, the Puget Systems Aquarium PC YouTube video demonstrates, with some innovative thinking, how easy it is to create a unique and fun new look to a personal computer.
Interesting. The YouTube video that the story is referring to is right here:
The kit uses an Eclipse System 6 aquarium, which Puget says is the perfect size for the project. The kit can be had from Puget Systems for just over $300. Not bad pricing for any PC really. This could appeal to aquarists and computer geeks alike!
