Wii Controller Hacked to Control Xbox 360
A console modder known as sir crx has fabricated a mashup between an Xbox 360 controller and a Wii-mote, allowing the Wii control to operate the Xbox 360. From what I can tell, he modified the 360 controller to accept Bluetooth commands, then uses it as a proxy for connecting to the Xbox through Microsoft’s proprietary wireless scheme.

Hot on the heels of Ben Heck’s last mod, the PS360 hybrid joystick, he’s at it again. This time he’s cranked out another Xbox 360 laptop, which improves on the original one he did a few months back.

Ben Heck’s PS360 Sixaxis Controller

Ben Heck’s PS360 Sixaxis Controller
Console modder extraordinaire Ben Heck is at it again. This time, he’s carefully taken the guts of the Playstation 3’s SIXAXIS controller and sandwiched them inside of an Xbox 360’s wireless controller. There’s something that’s oh-so-wrong but oh-so-right about the strange bedfellows coming together to form a single mutant controller.

My favorite console mod-god, Ben Heck is at it again. This time, he’s helped Engadget take Nintendo’s Wii gaming console and turned it into a laptop. The portable features a 7-inch widescreen LCD monitor, and even has a built-in “sensor bar” replacement at the top of the screen.

Ben’s latest endeavor was to take his original Atari VCSp (his first portable 2600,) and update it into a cleaner more modern design.

“Don’t Touch it, Don’t even look at it…” Actually, I don’t seem to remember seeing this one in Nigel Tufnel’s guitar collection… The NES Paul electric guitar case mod, is the mutant offspring of musician/gamer, Jason Cox (aka ‘XOC’,) who decided to meld two of his favorite passions into a single ax of doom.

Ben Heck’s Latest Mod: Atari Jaguar Portable

Ben Heck’s Latest Mod: Atari Jaguar Portable
I’m a big fan of Ben Heck’s amazing console mod projects, and this one is no different. Ben’s latest challenge: turn an Atari Jaguar console into a portable. As usual, the result is quite stunning. He managed to cram the entire system into a box about 1-inch thick with a built-in LCD panel and the ability to run it off of a (somewhat unwieldy) battery pack.

Console modder extraordinaire, Ben Heck has completed his latest masterpiece, and Xbox 360 laptop. Ben’s “portable” has a beautiful aluminum case with a 17-inch widescreen LCD, built-in keyboard, Wi-Fi and USB ports on board. Dimensions are a “svelte” 16.75″ x 10.75″ x 2.8″, so it’s actually not much larger than a stock Xbox 360.
