What’s as bright as a plasma grenade stuck to your face? This Halo casemod, that’s what.
This spiffy custom model puts the official Halo Xbox 360 to shame. Not only does it glow (always a plus), but that’s one of the armor emblems from the game.
The Wind Waker was a somewhat controversial entry in The Legend of Zelda series due to the childlike cel-shaded graphics, which many fans felt didn’t suit the franchise. No one could possibly object to Wind Waker Link on this quilt, though.
Ah, game cartridges. They can bring so much joy… and take up so much space. And sure, you could save ’em forever, clearing space to keep all those boxes and carts… or you could brutally gut them and turn them into something else.
Here’s a new and different idea for a DIY iPod case: use pages of old comics. A little masking tape, a few pages of killer images, and the ability to cut a straight line with scissors is all it took to assemble this chic custom case.
The blue-tinted case, shown above, was the first, made from a found box of vintage French comics.
This is a DIY trend we need a lot more of: custom iPhone docks made from awesome and random objects, like toy dinosaurs. That works on so many levels that maker rockabillyjon, who posted the homemade dock to Flickr, should market the thing.
I love the less overt displays of fandom as much as I do the building of lifesize robot replicas, so I couldn’t possibly resist hairsticks decorated with little touches of iconic images from video games.
Can you imagine walking behind someone with the T-virus bobbing along in their hair?
I can’t believe this isn’t the first time that a rubber band machine gun has been featured on this blog. Dammit. I wasn’t even aware that rubber band machine guns existed until I read this article at JapanProbe.
Dice are important for gamers of all types, not just fans of tabletop RPGs, so why not make a dicebag to carry your dice in? It sounds like something from Pimp My Ride, but really, it’s just a nifty project you can undertake yourself.
Cakes, cupcakes… things of the past. Relics from a ruined age. Now it’s candy, folks; if you want to make decorative, teeth-rotting sweets, it’s all about candy displays, just like this one. It’s the cutting edge!
Someday, people are going to learn not to mess with the dangerous technology. You’re not supposed to build an AI! Haven’t the movies taught you people anything? Apparently not, since some guy has gone and built himself a transforming robot.
Is it awesome?
And some people think junk is just, well, junk. But to the more visionary among us, that junk could be anything. Anything. Even a Tesla coil, if you’re innovative enough.
This DIY Tesla coil was built entirely from items found in the garbage.
If this year’s E3 is any indication (and it’s like, the indication), then motion controls are the future. If you’re cunning and good with wires, you can even experience the future now.
This is pretty basic–as strange as it is to refer to motion controlled gaming as basic–considering this glove is just a holder for an accelerometer, so that the tilt and motion of the player’s hand and wrist is used to manipulate the pieces.
Raise your hand if you don’t have or have access to an old keyboard. If you didn’t raise your hand, I’m pretty sure you’re an alien. For the rest of us… what’s a girl to do with all those old keyboards?
Oh, that Arduino. Is there anything you can’t accomplish with an Arduino and a little bit of know-how? Whether your project is of a serious nature, or dedicated to playing Pong with your eyebrows–like this one is–the potential here seems limitless.
Hackster Queen (of All Cosmos, naturally) Kellbot has created what may become the ultimate Katamari Damacy experience: a spherical controller, so you can roll while you roll. It’s enough to make me want to learn how to wire things together.
With a metal ball, an optical mouse, bits of PS2 controllers, and a little help from Arduino, Kellbot put together the roll-a-riffic controller of all Katamari lover’s dreams.
