I want my flying car – kitchens of the future

frtimage-copyWe saw a leak of the touchscreen interface that BFG Tech’s new Phobos system sports a few weeks ago, but the whole thing is a bit more impressive. Of course, some configurations will run you $8000!

These systems are completely no-holds-barred. Like other super-high-end setups like the Blackbird, it uses only the best components and cost be damned. Check out the specs:

Upcoming BFG NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 295 Graphics Cards (x2 for Quad SLI®)
• BFG NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 for Dedicated PhysX™ Processing
• Intel® Core i7 965 Extreme Edition 3.2GHz Processor
• CoolIt® Contained Liquid Cooling Solution (GPU&CPU)
• MSI® Eclipse SLI Intel® X58-based Motherboard
• Patriot® 6GB PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3 Memory
• 4x Western Digital® VelociRaptor 300GB Hard Drives
• Slot Loading Blu-ray® Super Multi Optical Drive
• BFG LS-1200 1200W High Efficiency Power Supply
• Auzentech X-Fi Prelude 7.1 Sound Card
• Integrated iPhone®/iPod® syncing dock
• Unique 8” Interactive Touch Panel LCD

Yes, that’s a GeForce GTX 285 just for PhysX processing. Liquid cooling, build-in-iPod dock, a top-of-the-line proc, mobo, and RAM… this thing is pretty much all set. Possibly the coolest bit though is the touchscreen on its front:

I’d love to have one of those things. Of course, if my computer is anywhere near where I can see it, it had better be quiet as a whisper, which I kind of doubt this beast is. At any rate, you can configure your own starting January 8. Just don’t let your significant other see it.
