Katsuya Matsumura's Miss Kana
Japanese modder Katsuya Matsumura's Miss Kana case mod was featured in the May 2004 edition of Monthly PC-DIY, and inspired by drawings by Kanna Higashi.
Matsumura ultimately decided to name this manga mod after Higashi, while dropping an "n" from her name.
Miss Kana, which is made of painted styrene foam and sculpted clay on a frame constructed of vinyl chloride pipes, has a 1GHz VIA C3 Nehemiah processor and a 12GB laptop hard drive. The PC parts are located in Miss Kana's back and hair.
Not a lot of beef here, but what Miss Kana lacks in substance, she makes up for in style.
