Everyone loves pasta. It is a cheap source of calories, it is easy to cook and it comes in many cute shapes like bow ties. It's so great that, maybe a little unfairly, it has become a little pigeonholed for being just a food. Now, thanks to a new version of PC based on paste detected by Motherboard those days are finally coming to an end.
The version is courtesy of YouTuber Laplanet Arts, who embarked on the project after his wife joked about making a PC with pasta … so that's exactly what he did. The machine is based on the hardware of an old convertible Asus Transformer tablet, which it extracted from its old chassis and integrated into a new case made entirely of lasagna and rigatoni.
Disappointingly, what initially appears to be ketchup and melted cheese between each of the pieces of lasagna is actually hot glue that has been painted red. In other bad news, the old specifications of the tablet, beyond the fact that it is literally encased in pasta means that it struggles to do anything, whether it's emulating Game Boy Advance games or even trying to play a movie on Hulu.
Still, you can not blame Laplanet Arts for trying. Here we hope that one day I will make a second attempt, so we can use a sweet word game of Mamma Mia that we have stored.
