"pimpstar" fans

Last month I wrote about Pimpstar rims and my friends are still talking about them. We all want Escalades so we can roll like we’re “drivin’ Christmas trees.” Now, from Computex in Taiwan come “pimpstar” case fans for your computer.

OEM supplier Polo Tech showed a spinning led fan that can display pre-programmed words. They hope to commercialize a USB version that will allow users to enter text, graphics and simple animation – and all at an affordable price (~$10 a fan). When these are released I predict that we’ll become case modders, cutting in plexiglas windows to show off our customized led cooling fans.
