Some folks, when they make something as great looking as this custom Xbox 360 console, they give you the skinny. The rundown, if you will. A list of specs. A retelling of the effort, the hours that went into their craftsmanship.
This isn’t about being amazing at Guitar Hero; lots of people are amazing Guitar Hero players. No, this little patch of the internet is dedicated to being amazing at doing the obvious (and I mean that in a good way).
First it was gold-plated toilet seats, and now we’ve got the most expensive government-produced weapon in the history of anything being used for grilling burgers. It would be a travesty if it wasn’t the coolest customization ever.
This is what happens when two grills become one: weapons and food production.
Modder/droog/man of the moment David Penfold aka Mremulator was inspired by an award-winning custom rig and decided to go totally bolshy yarblockos with his own build. First he picked orange and black for the colors of his SilverStone TJ07 computer case – which incidentally was the same model used in the custom pc that inspired him – and came up with the theme later: A Clockwork Orange.
We’re still months away from BioShock 2, but you’d never know it from the projects that have been cropping up in relation to the sequel. And while the Big Sister isn’t nearly as cute as the Big Daddy doll we’ve seen (which produces automatic “awws”), it’s still an incredible figure!
Looks pretty detailed, eh?
It has to be tough to pick just one game to represent everything about a platform, but in a sense, that’s what you’re doing when you customize a gaming console. When it comes to the Xbox (original or 360), though, whether or not you like Halo, you’ve got to admit it’s certainly a flagship franchise for the console.
Sometimes, when you really love a series, there’s nothing you won’t do to promote your fandom, even down to plastering the very shoes on your feet with the franchise’s iconography. When that franchise also happens to be about attorneys and people with crazy names, this is the result:
If you have a Kindle, odds are you’re keenly interested in protecting it. It’s not like they’re cheap, after all, and that big, beautiful screen deserves to be covered up when not in use. If you’re a traditionalist, you can always go with Amazon’s leather Kindle cover, but if black leather isn’t your speed, handmade may be the way to go.
These handmade Kindle bags from the Borsa Bella marketplace at Etsy are simple, stunning wristlets designed to cradle the e-reader–and to look damn good while doing it.
Here’s a unique mod: a bulldozer! This one’s got it all, and by “all,” I mean colorful lights and moving parts. You can paint a case all day long and glue on all the setpieces you’d like, but movable parts beat all.
The post title above is misleading, however; Russian modder Megalex’s custom bulldozer mod would only be good for heavy lifting if you also happened to have a time machine.
Listen up, gaming cakes, you’re gonna have to be careful–there’s a new contender in town: the twake. That’s Twitter cake if you’re not trying to save on characters, and it’s the new birthday sensation. See? Twitter really is taking over the world.
Not only does this particular cake offer up birthday wishes properly (happy belated, @GDruckman!),
Sure, it’s only April, but you know what they say–every year, it’s earlier with the Christmas decorations, so why not beat the rush? It’s tempting when we’re talking about five bucks for handmade ornaments featuring iconic images from popular Xbox 360 games.
TheLemonadeStandShop may have a whimsical name, but Master Chief is serious business.
Sometimes, the best things in life… well, they aren’t free, but they can come with minimal effort, at least. Apparently, on the scale of PSP mods, this paintjob/LED-addition combo is only “average” difficulty.
…to which I say, well this might be a simpler mod if you happen to be an experienced modder.
There are two things that have to be said about this custom Xbox 360 arcade cabinet: it’s big (like the original Xbox, only even bigger) and it’s pretty pricey. Only serious Xbox devotees need apply at $2250… but that is, after all, cheaper than a lot of gaming PCs, and it would take quite the pimped-out PC to match this project.
The cabinet itself is an old Midway machine (new monitor included) with the guts of a 60GB Xbox 360 refitted inside.
Just when you thought it was safe to surf the Internet again without running into custom Portal gear working to lure you back into your addiction to Valve’s hit game, the fandom rush has returned in pony form.
The Nintendo Sixtyfree Lite-R: the past of gaming, futurized in handheld form. While playing this shrunken, portable N64 might be a challenge, particularly when it comes to, say, some of the console’s excellent first-person shooters, it certainly looks good.
