Stargate case

Ok I am new at this and figured I would put up some starting pics of my case
and hopefully get some suggestions, ideas. My plan right now is to make the side window with the stargate chevrons glow in order.
The best idea for this is using a matrix orbital display and use the outputs to light up the LED's
If anyone has anything else would be glad to hear it
Ok heres my boot screen, my system and I learned already even if you cant see fingerprints there still on your case!!!!!!!! also I need more light around my stargate

No not yet its going to be a matrix orbital disply or a simple 6 dollor led project. Lookong into the matrix display because I think I can comtrol the leds how I want them to light up. and then I can display some cool text in the front of my system also

It is going to be attached by a cable and will control the drives and power
I am planing on stealthing the drives and making the buttons on the DHD
so right now it will sit next to or on top of my system dont know yet
but will be operational eather way

What is the DHD? Is it a clay model you made, a toy you scavenged, or what?

No, no.

Not "What is a Dial Home Device?", but "What did you make that out of?".

I can't tell if it is clay that he made, or if it is a plastic toy that he is modifying, or what?

It is a clay model that I made from scratch wish they made a toy I could modify but they dont seem to make stargate toys. After searching the net for the best possable picture I went to the local hobby shop and got me some modeling clay and started making the DHD and so far thats what I have done when I start wireing it and painting it will take more pics of the controls
