I came up with an idea at Macworld and everyone loved the idea, though I don't have the knowledge or time to implement it. Take a Mac Cube and mod it so it looks like a Borg cube from ST:TNG, DS:9, Voyager. I was thinking you could put in a small light to simulate a tractor beam and have a small model of the the Enterprise D being caught in it. And when it powers up, it would say "resistance is futile !". Perhaps you could make the beam display a small Apple logo on the starship. Another idea would be to motorize the cube so you could radio control it and run it around at user meetings or even Macworld. ( Perhaps it would look for it's own wi-fi ? )Anyone want to try it? I'd be willing to fund some of the expense if 2 could be built. [ One for the modder and one for me. ] ( cube would need a bigger hd though)
Modding for looks? No problem. Tractor beam with Apple logo? A little more difficult. Radio control? Very challenging. That last bit would be very cool, though. Unfortunately, the cube is not a perfect cube, and so making it look like a Borg cube without fabricating a new case for it would make for a somewhat strange thing.
