Brought Sensei in to the conference room at my work place to take final shots. Enjoy!

I'd like to thank everyone who helped me throughout this project: Moddersmart, Crucial, Pacific Waterjet, and especially to Lenovo for having the contest and providing me with one of their cool products to mod!

Yes, the contest deadline was the 15th, and needless to say I lost lol. However, Lenovo still wants to showcase my Sensei mod at CES along with the others.


All I can say it that is SOME BS! I think you should have won hands down! Nice Job!

How can you say that without reviewing the other entries?

Thanks Spider Monkey, yes the other entries are amazing and the winner(s) deserve the win. Had I finished earlier and showed everyone the completed mod, I might have gotten more votes and maybe had a chance. Not sure I would have gotten over 1000 votes even then lol.

@ Wiked, I appreciate the sentiment man, and I'm just glad I was able to finish it in time to make CES.

As soon as I can find some pics of Sensei at the show, I'll post them up here.

Actually I did review the other entries weeks ago. I liked this one the best due to the overall capabilities and how it would effect other areas of life in general.

This is what modding is truly about. Making something for function. Too often we get caught up in the "look how pretty it is" kinds of mods.

Sorry im a little late to comment on the party! That is one cool design you have there. I dont know how well that would work with high school and lower because of the smart board, but I know that in my college there are a few carts with a projector and a laptop. A system like this would be much better as the teacher could carry it with them instead of this huge cart. And a hd that could be swapped between machines would make it even more useful if there are say 3 or 4 profs that have to share it.

With built in wireless, presentations can be accessed over the school's network. No need for HDD swapping.

True enough, but wireless is spotty in many areas of our school, besides being slow and in desperate need of an upgrade. The one teacher that was using the cart the most was not technically inclined (history prof) and had about 4 usb thumb drives to carry all of his presentations. One external hdd would have solved that mess immediately.
