Laser Xmas Tree in Tokyo: No Need for Needles
This giant green Christmas tree was recently sighted at the base of an office building in Tokyo, Japan. But unlike its Rockefeller Center counterpart, this one can entirely vanish with the flip of a switch.

Dead Xbox 360 Reborn as Pc [Casemod]
When my original 2005 Xbox 360 finally succumbed to the dreaded Red Rings of Death, it ended up going on the scrap heap. This enterprising modder showed a bit more creativity than I could muster by turning his overheating Xbox lemons into a souped-up glass of PC lemonade.

When I came across this Guitar Hero controller made out of LEGO blocks, I was impressed. But once I found out it was fully-functional, I was blown away. Built by LEGO fanatic David McNeely (aka Blue Star LEGOs), this is the third in his series of working Guitar Hero controllers.

Nintendo Collages Made to Order
These fun, one-of-a-kind paper collages are inspired by popular Nintendo video game characters. Washington DC artist and die-hard Nintendo fanboy Chris Lange handcrafts these colorful gaming collages from old Nintendo Power magazines, so he’s not lying when he states that they’re “100% Nintendo”.

I thought that the Pac-Man hoodie would be the most outlandish article of clothing I’d write about this week, but leave it to me to always go just one better. So without further ado, I proudly present the LED Pimp Coat… The “deluxe” color-changing coat is not only made of the finest polka-dotted faux fur money can buy, it’s loaded with over 400 colorful LEDs which let you change the outfit’s colors to suit your mood.

Pac-Man Maze Hoodie is Amazingly Ugly

Pac-Man Maze Hoodie is Amazingly Ugly
Other than the Noah Wyle with long hair and a beard look-alike dude modeling this outfit, I’m not sure who’d actually wear this ridiculously over-the-top Pac-Man themed hoodie. The lightweight black jacket has pretty much every available surface covered with a Pac-Man maze print, leaving little question that the wearer is a complete dork.

Mobile Phone Offers NES Emulation, Mystery Windows Key
Here’s a suspicious looking mobile phone from China that manages to infringe on at least a couple of prominent brands in one feature-packed device. When opened up, the ZTC 8898 mobile not only looks mimics of the looks of HTC’s QWERTY phones, it claims to “simulate” 8-bit NES games too.

Worst Casemod Ever: Ubuntubox Cardboard Pc

Worst Casemod Ever: Ubuntubox Cardboard Pc
This computer has to be the biggest hunk of junk I’ve ever seen. Cobbled together from cardboard, red duct tape and embellished with a Sharpie, the UbuntuBox V1.0 certainly won’t win any awards for build quality.
