A weird, insain, yet cool way to reuse a couple old scanners

I have, in my possetion, a could of really old scanners. These tings are freakin' huge, One is taller then my Xbox, the other is a tad shorter.

My project is to make the bigger one a PC, using a mini AXT mobo and PSU. I couldn't put any cards, but it'd be a cool, if not interesting, mod project.

Thumbs up

Great idea for a mod, you'd probably end up chuckin' those old things in the bin anyway.
