Golden NES is Perfect for That Gold Zelda Cartridge Lying Around

Golden NES is Perfect for That Gold Zelda Cartridge Lying Around
If you had an NES as a budding young gamer, odds are the gold cartridge for The Legend of Zelda had a special place in your heart. Sure, it looked a little cheap if you really studied it, maybe even tacky, but after blowing the dust out of one of those babies, all other cartridges were plain ol’ gray and boring.

Nintendo 64 + Lazer Doodle + Psone = Darth64

Nintendo 64 + Lazer Doodle + Psone = Darth64
We already featured Jon Jandran aka Hailrazer’s awesome Dreamcast portable mod, the dreamtrooper. He originally wanted to paint the dreamtrooper’s case black and call it the DarthCast, but he decided to stick with the original console’s white color.

NES Cartridge Hard Drives Could Store Every 8-Bit Game Ever Made

NES Cartridge Hard Drives Could Store Every 8-Bit Game Ever Made
Here’s a great external hard drive for fans of the original Nintendo Entertainment System. These NES cartridges have had their guts ripped out and replaced with high-capacity modern hard drives. The guys over at 8-Bit Memory take retro NES carts and retrofit them with USB hard drives that you can use with any modern PC or Mac.

Steampunk Xbox Mod is a Bit of All Right

Steampunk Xbox Mod is a Bit of All Right
I think what I love most about steampunk-styled Xbox 360 mods is that they just don’t go together at all. Top hats, monocles, and a spot of Halo–no, I don’t think that would have been seen as quite proper.

Steampunk Skull Mouse for Those Who Are Creepy Yet Classy

Steampunk Skull Mouse for Those Who Are Creepy Yet Classy
Ivan Mavrov’s steampunk-style projects range from delicate dragonflies to clunky “time collectors,” but they’re all beautifully well crafted. But I think the award for ‘most likely to make your jaw drop’ clearly has to go to this item: the skull mouse.

Wiipod Might be the Best Wii Remote Mp3 Player Ever

Wiipod Might be the Best Wii Remote Mp3 Player Ever
It’s a pretty cool idea, this notion of turning a Wii remote into a music player, but modder goteking took this to all sorts of crazy new places. Here we have a Wii remote with headphones: Awesome!

DIY Asus Eee Keyboard: in Soviet Russia, You Make Your Own Computer

DIY Asus Eee Keyboard: in Soviet Russia, You Make Your Own Computer
In Soviet Russia, you don’t wait for ASUS to release – no. In Soviet Russia, you make do with an old – no. In Soviet Russia, my jokes work. Anyway… A Russian geek stuffed the innards of an Eee PC 900 into a Sven Multimedia EL 4002 (pdf) keyboard.

An Xbox 360 for a Black Widow

An Xbox 360 for a Black Widow
If you don’t like spiders, this one’s probably not for you. Eye-catching, to say the least. Or is that fly-catching? Oh ho ho. This particular custom Xbox 360 mod is the work of deviantARTist AceCasanova, who has done a number of console paintjobs, like this one: Photo’s a little blurry, but the color is just incredible.

Nintendo DS and Sony PSP Morphed into Less Portable Arcade Cabinet

Nintendo DS and Sony PSP Morphed into Less Portable Arcade Cabinet
You know what’s awesome about portable game systems? Portability, of course! And what’s awesome about arcade cabinets? Everything. So it’s clear that arcade cabinets are, in fact, better than portables… which means it’s totally okay to hack your portables into your arcade cabinets.

Colorware Brings the Black Macbook Back, but It’S Gonna Cost You

Colorware Brings the Black Macbook Back, but It’S Gonna Cost You
When it comes to their laptops, Apple has a bit of a sadistic side, adding neat features only to take them away soon after. For example, the Firewire port was a staple of the polycarbonate Macbooks, and then it was removed from the first Unibody 13.3″ Macbooks, only to be returned in the new 13.3″ Macbook (semi)Pros.

Ben Heck’S Xbox 360 Laptop Rev. 5 is One Bad Mofo Portable System

Ben Heck’S Xbox 360 Laptop Rev. 5 is One Bad Mofo Portable System
This wouldn’t be the first time that casemodding king Ben Heck has cranked out an Xbox 360 laptop. As a matter of fact, this is the fifth revision of Heck’s portable 360 modding shenanigans. But the fact that he manages to cram such a beefy system into a portable case never gets old for me.

Wood and Brass iPod Mini: the Druid’S Music Player

Wood and Brass iPod Mini: the Druid’S Music Player
Nature lover/not quite hip iPod owner Josh D shows us what Dremel and good taste can do. Josh D sent his iPod mini to a time way way way before retro by equipping it with a cedar wood case with brass screws and plates.

Steampunk PS3, More Expensive Than a Regular PS3

Steampunk PS3, More Expensive Than a Regular PS3
Sony’s PlayStation 3 has certainly had its ups and downs since its debut, but even the hatiest of haters must have a hard time denying that the console looks pretty good. That sleek black finish complements any gaming setup.

NES Controller Doorbell: I’D Hit That

NES Controller Doorbell: I’D Hit That
To whoever made this fun doorbell: wouldn’t it be more awesome if you had to punch in the Konami code before it rang? Requiring the code will also deter naughty neighbors who’ll no doubt be compelled to play with the doorbell.

The Pimptendo has Got Everything Under Control

The Pimptendo has Got Everything Under Control
I’ve seen a lot of console mods in my time. I’ve seen really horrible systems destroyed with ink pens and low quality paint, and I’ve seen consoles turned into art. What I’ve never seen is a console affixed with feathers.

Custom Xbox 360 Speaks for Itself

Custom Xbox 360 Speaks for Itself
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.
