Anything for geekiness! A guy named Chris took his small Eee PC to a Brooklyn store and etched complete maps of Super Mario Land (Game Boy) on the screen lid. Needless to say, it looks awesome.
From his Flickr page:
Last night I laser-etched the top of my Eee PC with the complete level maps of Super Mario Land ( on the Game Boy).
Everything from the familiar layouts of 1-1 to the climactic battle with Tatanga in the clouds at the end of 4-3 is represented in the etching.
This was made possible with the laser cutter at NYC Resistor in Brooklyn (www.nycresistor.com ), where you can go to get your laptop etched too!
I set the laser in raster mode at 70% speed and 40% power to achieve this look.
