I never go into the bathroom upstairs at my house. That’s the bathroom my son uses, and he can’t aim. If he goes to the bathroom in the middle of the night, I can guarantee you there’s more on the lid and the floor than in the toilet.
When I had more than one person over playing video games as a kid we always ended up in an argument about who would change the video game when we wanted to swap titles. It usually ended up in stalemate with some of my friends and we would all just sit there starting at a game no one wanted to play because we were all too stubborn to get up and change the game.
Ben Heck may have earned fame and fortune (and possibly love) by creating custom video game devices, but that doesn’t mean that that’s all he’s good for. In the latest episode of The Ben Heck Show the master modder set his sights on a loftier goal – making sure hospital employees keep their hands clean.
Atari will be re-releasing some of their classic games on Xbox Live, and to help promote it they’ve asked modder Ben Heck to create an Atari-inspired Xbox 360 laptop. At first I thought he was going to stuff the guts of a 360 into an Atari 2600, but the case of the old console probably doesn’t have enough room.
If your phone dies in the woods, how do you charge it? Sure, you can bring a backup battery, but what if you’re out there for an extended period of time? You do have options of solar power, or maybe even wind power.
Out of all the things that he’s known for in the gadget world, modder Ben Heck is most famous for his unique specialty – making portable versions of current video game consoles. His latest portable console was made for a couple that’s currently serving in the US Army in Afghanistan, and that’s why Ben Heck made sure that the mod would be as tough as its owners.
Created for the latest episode of The Ben Heck Show, the modder created yet another ingenious design, a laptop with a screen optimized for flying in a in the cramped cabin of a commercial airplane.
If any of you have ever tried to use your laptop on the tray table of an airplane, you know how irritating it can be to get the screen angle to work where you can comfortably view it.
Not one to rest on his laurels, modder Ben Heck is once more “at it”, cranking out an awesome geek costume just in time for Halloween.
By rigging up a chest-mounted LCD screen and a back-mounted CCD camera, he’s created this Portal-inspired t-shirt.
Well, it had to happen sooner or later. Casemod god Benjamin Heckendorn is all grown up and has gone and gotten himself his own TV show.
Okay, it’s just an Internet TV show, and pretty much anyone can have one of those, but Ben is cool, and we’re excited for his new show.
Looks like modder Ben Heck is at it once again. He’s cranked out yet another of his wondrous console casemods – this time it’s a new variation on his earlier PS3 Slim laptop.
His latest take on the portable PS3 Slim incorporates many of the design elements of the first one, with some subtle changes.
Master modician Ben Heck was commissioned to create a customized Playstation 3 controller. The customer wanted Heck “to make the shoulder buttons easier to get at”. Judging from the finished product, which required the removal of the rumble motors, I’m inclined to believe that the customer has 4 extra thumbs and no ring and middle fingers.
You can always count on modder Ben Heck to outdo himself, and this time, he’s built his best Atari 800 laptop yet.
This is the third revision of the Atari 800 laptop that Ben has built, and this one captures the spirit of the original 8-bit machine the best.
