It’s not even 2010 but I already know what I want for next year’s Christmas. Modder/genius/my new Santa Claus techknott – a disciple of no other than master modician Ben Heck – recently unveiled one of the most awesome pieces of hardware I have ever seen: a PS3 wireless visual interface (WVI).

Microvision and Intel Demo Pocket Projector Game Controller
I’ll start out by saying that I’m really not all that excited by all the pocket projectors that have started to flood the market. At least not yet. I mean really, how many of us really need a tiny dim projector when we’ve got giant 60-inch LCDs and Plasmas in our living rooms these days.

From Classic Console to Arcade Stick

From Classic Console to Arcade Stick
Here’s a creative way to preserve that old NES when it finally, finally breaks down: turn it into an arcade stick. A bulky, thick, incredible arcade stick. Beyond the forest of wiring, this actually doesn’t look as difficult as some of the crazier custom jobs we’ve seen, and odds are most folks have an old and unused console lying around somewhere.

Put Your Wii Remote Inside a Baby

Dragon Controller for People Who Hate Comfort

Dragon Controller for People Who Hate Comfort
I’m not sure about this horrible controller trend, but with the release of Brando’s dragon gamepad, I think we can officially say that it has taken hold. It’s either that, or a lot of gamer masochists are finding new and creative ways to hide their proclivities.
