Master Chief Helmet Hard Drive Enclosure Mod

Recommended Posts

So I got really bored and was looking at the old Halo 3 Legendary Edition helmet. I realized that for the past 5 years I have had absolutely no use for it. So I picked it up and was trying to find something cool to find inside it. I realized my external HDD was the perfect size, so I started taking dimensions.

And viola, using just a screwdriver and a boxcutter, I have put a very crude hole in the back of the helmet and put the HDD inside. It uses very thin glossy plastic so it worked fine, but the stand uses a harder, very thick plastic and I will have to use a drill for it tomorrow. So far it looks pretty cool though. Will update tomorrow after I drill the stand for it.

A dremel would have made the holes a lot cleaner looking. Or you can do it the hard way by using some sandpaper to smooth the edges of the cuts a bit.

Good idea though.

My first thought was wow what a very cool and easy mod. My second though though was the same as Andrea, I would worry a little about the temps. Often times the manufacturer will use the metal enclosure for heat dissipation.
