Now here’s something that tickles my tech geek side… A pretty cool looking Hatsune Miku case mod of the newly announced Thermaltake Core P5 computer case was spotted at the Tsukumo PC head office in Akihabara of Tokyo, Japan. The modification was done by the mod artist “Monma Fabio“, and is a one of a kind system that is not planned for sale. It will be on display in the store for around 2 weeks.

Many aspects of the internals, such as the fans, shrouds and liquid cooling (even the liquid itself!) has been colored to hues of teal and hot pink to match Hatsune Miku’s color theme. The acrylic itself has been etched with iXima’s illustration of Hatsune Miku V3. Check out more photos below!

The system is equipped with the Core i7 6700K processor, Intel Z170A Gaming Pro motherboard, and a modest MSi GTX 960 graphics card. For those interested in trying their own mod, the Thermaltake Core P5 case is now available in many regions.

We’ve seen various Hatsune Miku costumes to date, but have yet witnessed one made entirely out of balloons. JOU, the professional balloon artist, has created the first Hatsune Miku​ balloons costume, fully suited with the iconic tie and sleeves, as well as negi balloon as extra accessories.

The costume took roughly four hours in production, and was made for the purpose of showcasing at Niconico Chokaigi tour at Fukuoka on September 13th. Due to many voices from fans at the event, JOU has considered and made the outfit wearable. Perhaps we could see the outfit put into usage sometime soon.
