Mods - Project: Pyramac

Project: Pyramac case mod originally started in Dec. 2002 and was completed May of 2003. It's being re-published here from my old site riscx@mac.com.

“Project Pyramac” is a symbolic mod for the Mac G4 transformation or resurrection if you will, into the Mac G5. This was completed before Apple officially released their PowerMac G5 tower in June 2003, the G5 case design is still going strong today.

wired.com posted a article “A Desktop Seventh Wonder” about Project: Pyramac.

What is a Pyramac?
Definition: PyrAmac – (pyr-a-mac)
n.
1. Macintosh Computer in the form of a Pyramid: pyr or Fire Mac.
2. Relating to the action of fire or heat: pyrography.
3. Fever: pyrogen.
4. Derived from an acid by the loss of a water molecule: pyrosulfuric acid.

[
Latin prymac , pyramac- , from Greek pramac , probably from Egyptian pimac but most likely from the dood in the Mojave Desert who says PyrMac (Pure Mac).]

1. A computer figure with a polygonal base and triangular faces that meet at a common point and glows hot with a variety of colors.
2. A computer shaped like a polyhedron on fire or glowing with heat/colors.
3. A glowing computer having a rectangular base and four triangular faces culminating in a single apex, built over or around a CPU.
4. Any of various similar constructions, especially a four-sided Mesomacintosh computer having sloped sides and a pinnacle top surmounted by chambers and computer components.
5. The modding involved in pyramiding computers.



And, as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
Turns them into shapes, and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name

– William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
