Back in March, Mike Schropp unveiled his Mini LEGO Computer. It went viral and is now a commercial success, but many people asked him for a smaller and more affordable LEGO PC. So Mike came up with the Micro LEGO Computer, a modified Intel NUC PC.
Ed Zarick made a name for himself cramming current gen consoles into a laptop form, but so far the case mods he’s done have basic decorative details, mostly the 3D printed corner pieces. He must have realized that too, so he built this R2-D2-themed PS4 laptop to show off what he can do.
Earlier this year we checked out Ed Zarick’s Playbox, a laptop that contains both the Xbox One and the PS4. That was supposed to be a one-off, but Ed got a lot of requests for the console combo that he decided to add it to his list of products on sale.
Last year, professional modder Ed Zarick figured out how to make laptop versions of the PS4 and the Xbox One, and then topped both efforts by stuffing the two consoles into one laptop. It turns out the current gen console laptop trifecta was completed around the same time, thanks to ModRetro member Anthony aka RedmagnusX.
Christoph Kauch and Rol Schwarz found a way to hide their UniFi access point in plain sight. They mounted the device inside Revell’s scale model of the USS Enterprise from the original Star Trek TV series.
We’ve seen that it’s completely viable to make a computer case out of LEGO. But if you don’t know how to build your own, hit up Mike Schropp of Total Geekdom. He recently unveiled his LEGO Computer build, a nice compromise between form and function.
Eddie Zarick is officially the king of laptop case mods. After combining the Xbox One and Xbox 360 in one laptop conversion, Ed has managed to cram both the PS4 and the Xbox One in one unit, which is just a bit taller than his other console laptop mods.
ASUS’ Republic of Gamers blog recently shared this kick-ass PC case. Made by Han Yu aka Little Hand, the Strix Knight takes its inspiration from the logo of ASUS’ Strix graphics cards, “strix” being the Greek word for owl.
Console modder Ed Zarick’s been on a tear lately. Last month he introduced his Xbox One laptop mod, then a couple of weeks ago he showed off his PS4 laptop mod. Now he’s back with another laptop mod, but it’s not based on the Wii U.
Last month we saw Ed Zarick’s sweet Xbox One laptop mod. He reached out to us bearing good news for PlayStation fans – he’s now accepting orders for his PlayStation 4 laptop mod, which he’s calling the PlayBook 4.
Wow. Someone really loves the Castlevania games. That someone is artist Vadu Amka, who gave his old PAL SNES console a super stunning and creepy casemod makeover. Seriously, I feel like if you played this console, the dead would rise.
We’ve seen an Xbox One laptop mod before, but if you’re looking for a more customizable design check out Ed Zarick’s Xbook One. Ed has been modifying Xbox 360 consoles for a while now, and he says he’s significantly improved his build process for the Xbook One.
This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Wagon toy gets the party rolling for our mutant turtle friends, but now that pro modder Platinumfungi has shoved a fully functional Nintendo system inside, we can really get this party started.
Last year we checked out a radical Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed NES by console modding duo Platinumfungi and Custom NES Guy. The duo’s latest work is another NES casemod based on the heroes in a half shell, but this time it’s an homage to the franchise’s first comic book (and first appearance for that matter), which was in black and white with a dollop of red on the cover.
The Atari Lynx was the first handheld video game system to feature a full color display, but it still lost to the Game Boy because Nintendo’s handheld was cheaper, smaller and lasted longer on fewer batteries.
As computers become smaller, thinner and more mobile, casemodding seems to be a dying art. That’s too bad. I was hoping that more people trick out their smartphones, tablets and AIO PCs, but that doesn’t seem to be the case (pun intended.)
