Pixel Qi Netbook Display Now Available for DIY Geeks
I have a notebook sitting around that waited until about a week after its warranty ran out for the display to stop working. It runs and all, but no video. Too bad for me that the thing is larger than the new Pixel Qi DIY display that you can now purchase.

I-Pod + 8-Track = Apple I-Track

I-Pod + 8-Track = Apple I-Track
Boy, I feel like it’s been a billion years since I even saw an 8-track tape, let alone listened to one. This kooky mod-job breathed new life into an old 8-track deck, letting it play tunes stored on an iPod. Modder themadhacker managed to rejigger the innards of this old 8-track cassette and wired it up so the magnetic playback head can play tunes from the iPod Nano docked conveniently inside of it.

LEGO Pac-Man Arcade Combines Old-School Games and Old-School Toys

LEGO Pac-Man Arcade Combines Old-School Games and Old-School Toys
What could be cooler than playing Pac-Man on an arcade machine that was almost completely made up of LEGOs? Ben Fleskes of Portland, Oregon, built this amazing machine. The only thing is that it probably won’t stand up to the typical abuse that an arcade machine goes through. You know what I mean.

See-Thru Tablet: DIY iPad

See-Thru Tablet: DIY iPad
Some modders can really do amazing stuff. Check out this cool tablet PC mod from Chinese modder Pandepig (Google translation). He used a normal 12″ laptop and stuffed it into a clear polycarbonate laptop cover. Then, he added a touch screen, controller, and secured everything in place with spacers, et voilà!

Make Your Own Iron Man Arc Reactor

Make Your Own Iron Man Arc Reactor
I’m sure a lot of cosplayers out there would take a repulsor blast in the face to have a slick Iron Man or War Machine costume. While not impossible, building the full costume takes an insane amount of talent, time and materials.

Guy Turns Famicom Controller Into a Wii-Mote

Guy Turns Famicom Controller Into a Wii-Mote
It’s anyone’s guess why you’d want to rip apart your shiny new Wii-mote controller and make it looks like something out of the 1980s, but this is the DIY-geek generation, and where there’s a will, there’s a way. This Japanese modder took two old Famicom controllers (that’s NES to you and I), and tore them apart.
