Every Monday, Build of the week highlights a unique rig from the web’s most dedicated PC building communities.
Stefan Ulrich, a modder from Germany we’ve featured , is back with his most ambitious custom build yet. Look on his work, ye mighty, and despair, because this damn Dalek is excellent. If you’re unfamiliar, Daleks are a hyper aggressive alien species and some of the longest running antagonists on the classic British sci-fi series, Doctor Who. It’s not just a physical replica of a Dalek either. Ulrich made sure this build could work as a stand-in on the show, if necessary.
The Dalek nozzle contains a motion sensor, and if it’s activated it’ll spit out one of . Coupled with a few motors that rotate the head and lift and lower the nozzle, the mod is as capable as any cheap British sci-fi prop. LEDs complete the illusion, illuminating the weapon and body in waves of intense blue light, and if you open the sucker up and you won’t just find a PC, but also a replica of the tiny, tentacled Dalek alien. Disgusting! I mean that in a good way, of course.
