    Search around here. You'll find others that have done it, and the results are amazing. That said, it's also so complex and involves so much engineering and fabrication that it's only been done successfully a handful of times by the most talented people.

    Composimo's thread in the Multimedia thread, for instance. Check that out for reference on what is usually involved.

    Write a check for $14,000 if you can't do it. $8000 if you can do that sort of thing. And a fully equipped machining shop and engineering degree should be in your arsenal.
