Myst Returns In An Unusual Hardcover Book

Posted October 31, 2012 - By Adam Rosenberg

Cyan's classic PC adventure game Myst is filled with books, so it's only right that now there's a book in this world that is filled with Myst. Super-fan Mike Ando put his tech skills to work on build a Windows XP computer with a 5-inch touchscreen to slide inside of a hollowed-out hardcover book. The result is a Myst machine, in book form (via Engadget).

Ando used a 135-year-old copy of Harper's New Monthly Magazine as his shell since it's what Cyan used as a texture reference for the game's linking books. The PC inside the book is fitted with a 1.6GHz Atom processor, a battery that's good for two hours, and every single Myst game in existence (on PC).

The whole thing is being sold for $15,625, so break out those checkbooks! As an added incentive, Ando also points out on his website that the Mystbook's computer is powerful enough to handle Half-Life 2. Just saying.
