Super Nintendo Pc Casemod Runs 32-Bit Os in a 16-Bit Box

Super Nintendo Pc Casemod Runs 32-Bit Os in a 16-Bit Box
Check out this clever casemod which combines the shell of an old SNES console with the brains of a modern PC. Modders quangDX and DuPPs took an old Super Nintendo they had lying around, splayed open its guts and married it with the internals of an Acer Aspire One A150 laptop, then dubbed it the aaSNES1 (is that pronounced assness-one?).

Clockwork Orange Overclocked Custom Pc: Viddy Well Done

Clockwork Orange Overclocked Custom Pc: Viddy Well Done
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.

Nespod iPod Mini Casemod: Double Retro Goodness

Nespod iPod Mini Casemod: Double Retro Goodness
Flickr user recycledgamer refuses to let go of the past, whether it’s past past or recent past. He/She took an iPod mini – a relic from 2004-05 – and gave it a suit of blocky plastic armor, the iconic NES controller from the Golden Age, the ancient Pre-Playstation eras.

Pimp Your Psp-3000 With Xcm Custom Faceplates

Pimp Your Psp-3000 With Xcm Custom Faceplates
Poor PSP-3000. Within weeks it was served a double whammy. After a fairly long period of being homebrew-proof, it was finally hacked. And then shortly afterwards it became (sorta) obsolete. Give your PSP some retail therapy and get one of these custom faceplates from console makeover masters XCM.

3.5-Inch Floppy Disk Raid: Why? Why Not?

3.5-Inch Floppy Disk Raid: Why? Why Not?
Welcome to the latest edition of Why? Why not?, where we look at concepts and creations that exist for no real reason. Yes folks, I’m talking about products of democracy, of free will, and most of all of too much free time.

Pac-Man Roomba Eats All Your Dirt Pellets

Pac-Man Roomba Eats All Your Dirt Pellets
As devices go, the Roomba is pretty cool on its own. It’s a useful machine and a fun toy all in one, so dressing it up can seem a little gratuitous. But if you turn your Roomba into Pac-Man… well, that’s just awesome.

Buglabs Open-Source Modular Gadget Factory: the Modder’S Gadget

Buglabs Open-Source Modular Gadget Factory: the Modder’S Gadget
Bug Labs’ very geeky product is the perfect Modder’s Day gift. You see, BUG is a set of tools that lets you mix and match its components to build your own gadget, like LEGO but a hundred times geekier.

Star Trek iPhone: the Simple Way to Show Your Love

Star Trek iPhone: the Simple Way to Show Your Love
So with the new Star Trek movie taking critics by storm, it’s only natural that people are flocking to the franchise’s fandom ranks, and that means more and more folks are going to be slapping Star Trek insignia on anything with a semi-flat surface.

Super Nice: Gamer Stuffs USB Hub Inside SNES Cartridge

Super Nice: Gamer Stuffs USB Hub Inside SNES Cartridge
Retro gamer/DIYer kristopher.hammar got sick of having a messed up gaming area. He regularly plays snes & nes games on his big TV, and everything was fine, except that the extension cables of the gamepads that he uses were all over the place.

Giant Computer Fans: Not Cool (Unless Your Name is Macgyver)

Giant Computer Fans: Not Cool (Unless Your Name is Macgyver)
Cooling and proper ventilation is an important aspect of building computers, especially for gamers or hobbyists who want to get the most out of their machines by overclocking processors and…doing other stuff that I don’t really understand.

Computer Mailboxes Receive Snail Mail, Not E-Mail

Computer Mailboxes Receive Snail Mail, Not E-Mail
Even though we already have e-mail, I think it will still take some time before we abandon snail mails. In the mean time, why don’t we give our plain old mailboxes a (fake) hardware upgrade? Here are a couple of ideas to get you started.

Dream Tablet Mod Flattens Out the Dreamcast

Dream Tablet Mod Flattens Out the Dreamcast
Modder Ben Heckendorm’s forums are always packed with portable projects, but this one’s a little different. You’ve got to hook up a separate controller, but that’s hardly anything to complain about when we’re talking about a Sega Dreamcast shoved into the body of a tablet PC.

Super Nintoaster Might Burn Your Cartridges

Super Nintoaster Might Burn Your Cartridges
We’ve seen people put old Nintendo systems into all kinds of things, but I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve seen a Super Nintendo inside a toaster. I guess you just can’t deny that cartridges and slices of bread aren’t completely dissimilar.

Glowing Psp Could be Simpler Than It Looks

Glowing Psp Could be Simpler Than It Looks
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.

Steampunk Xbox Knows What Time It is

Steampunk Xbox Knows What Time It is
There’s been a lot of fascinating steampunk gear turning up lately, but none quite so unique as MissLadyVenom’s work in progress at deviantART. Getting the steam-powered treatment this time is an Xbox–not the 360, but the hulking original model.
