The CubeQuarium: PowerMac G4 Cube Gets New Use

One of the most beautiful things that you can create out of the case of an old PowerMac Cube is an aquarium (as mentioned in passing previously). By far, the CubeQuarium is the best looking of the bunch. It's a functioning aquarium built into the case of the Cube...

There is something iconic about Macs. PCs seem to be disposable and cannibalized quite easily for parts while Macs remain as they were. It's a good and bad thing. We have to say that one of the most innovative computer designs was when the PowerMac G4 Cube came out. There was just something about that clear case that made everyone take a second look.

Carry Ann and Joe discovered an old discarded PowerMac G4 and proceeded to make an incredible looking aquarium out of it. They've appropriately called it the CubeQuarium and use it to house their fish Gil. The process in creating this was pretty straightforward. A little patience and sealant was used to make it waterproof. Check out their site to find out how they did it. We have to say that it looks phenomenally good. Heck, it makes us want to go and find some old discarded Cubes right now!
