The Shure 55 Unidyne microphone is a classic Machine Age design from the thirties.  It is so popular that it still being produced and sold today.  This custom built computer is my tribute to this great piece of industrial art.

Here's the money shot.  A size comparator and solid proof that this truly is a computer.

Here is a photo taken from one of the many Shure 55 available for sale on eBay.  I don't have one.  I wanted one.  I guess I built my own.

The Shure 55 Unidyne is also known as the Elvis mic.  Here the mic is immortalized on the Elvis commemorative stamp.
