You might be able to grab a Mac Pro wheels kit for $700, but how does a gaming PC crammed into a whole other set of wheels – a driveable toy Tesla Model S – sound? A YouTuber has posted a clip showcasing exactly this – a “high-end PC that can also be driveable” – or, put another way, “A mini Tesla that also has a PC in it”.
As spotted by PCGamer, YouTuber Marques Brownlee has explained how the rig’s made possible, and it starts with a Tesla Model S kids’ toy, built by Radio Flyer (which you can see here). It’s a “strikingly accurate” replica of the real thing and, like the original for grown ups, completely driveable. The dev explains that Origin PC saw the car – in particular, the space in its little front trunk – and realised it could house a custom built PC inside. “So that’s what they did”, Brownlee says.
According to the clip, the toy Tesla was able to accommodate a gaming PC kitted out with a AMD Ryzen 3900X CPU, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition GPU, ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 motherboard, two 16GB Corsair Dominator RAM sticks, a 2TB SSD, and a Hydro X cooling system. Neat.
There’s also some cool RGB lighting underneath the toy and a whole bunch of USB ports fitted to its miniature dashboard, offering room to chuck a bunch of the best PC gaming peripherals in there if desired. You can take a look at the clip for yourself below:
It’s worth noting, before you go ahead and scribble it down on your wish list, that the setup costs $13,432 (approximately £10,791) without including shipping costs. And there are options to add custom cosmetics, too. Phwoar.
