Project P.E.W. Mod: LARPing in Skyrim

This new calculator mod allows you to play Doom, not in monochrome, but in glorious color. There’s no sound in the game yet though, as the mod is still in the development stage. It runs on the Texas Instruments TI-nspire CX calculator with OS 3.1 and Ndless 3 running the Doom game.

Skyrim My Little Pony Mod: The Stuff of Nightmares

Skyrim My Little Pony Mod: The Stuff of Nightmares
I used to ride My Little Pony, until I took an arrow to the knee. Thankfully, I can still get some My Little Pony Action in a horrifying, flying little girl toy way. A geek going by the gibberish name zdzichorowerzysta, which I believe to be Russian for ZOMG… Ponies, has crafted what may be the cutest and strangest Skyrim mod yet.

If you like to play pool and take your game on the road, this is the car for you, since it allows you to literally bring the pool table with you. Car customizer Big Daddy Vini and Triangle Billards built this portable billiard hall onto the back of a late ’90s Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

Envision: If Nintendo Made a Gamecube Portable

Envision: If Nintendo Made a Gamecube Portable
It was just yesterday that we featured a cool portable Gamecube mod which we thought was pretty nifty. But I just stumbled onto another Gamecube handheld which is even cooler. And while making portable Gamecubes is actually quite common in modding circles, the Gamecube Envision is the best portable version of the console I’ve seen yet.

Sly Cube Portable Gamecube: Pay Attention Nintendo

Sly Cube Portable Gamecube: Pay Attention Nintendo
The Nintendo Gamecube is probably my least favorite console ever, but this portable mod improves upon it so much that I actually want to play. With the Sly Cube, you can take your Gamecube action to go since it is now more portable.

Star Trek Mailbox: to Boldly Go Where No Junk Mail Has Gone Before

Star Trek Mailbox: to Boldly Go Where No Junk Mail Has Gone Before
This may be the coolest mailbox ever. Too bad it can’t just phaser your junk mail before it enters the shuttlecraft docking bay. Also too bad it can’t use a tractor beam to get the mail from the box to your door.

Electus 64 Portable Nintendo 64 Mod: Game Boy Becomes Game Man

Electus 64 Portable Nintendo 64 Mod: Game Boy Becomes Game Man
Another day, another portable Nintendo 64 mod. The Electus 64 is a handheld Nintendo 64. It’s handheld in the same way that the original Nintendo 64 console is handheld – technically, you can hold either system in your hands if you wished.

My Little Fire-Breathing Pony

My Little Fire-Breathing Pony
Do you have a little girl that you are Christmas shopping for? Forget getting her a My Little Pony. Instead make her a fire-breathing pony. It might scar her for life, but hey, it’s fire. Fire is cool.

NES-S-Sketch Combines Two of Our Favorite Geek Toys

NES-S-Sketch Combines Two of Our Favorite Geek Toys
Some might consider it cheating to attach an NES controller to an Etch-A-Sketch, but not this guy. Those little vertical and horizontal knobs just weren’t cutting it so he got to work and created the NES-S-Sketch, which is like having the worst NES paint program ever that only uses the D-pad to go up and down and side to side.

HandyNES: the Portable NES with the Not So Portable Gun

HandyNES: the Portable NES with the Not So Portable Gun
Behold the latest NES mod, a portable NES from “LovableChevy”, the creator of such mods as the HandyDuo, Handy Gear, and Nintenduo. This one is called the HandyNES.

Diablo III Mod Darkens and Sharpens Graphics: Now All We Need is the Game

Diablo III Mod Darkens and Sharpens Graphics: Now All We Need is the Game
Our bodies have been ready for Diablo III the second we got tired of Diablo II, but it looks like we’ll have to wait a little more – (probably) February 2012 more – before we can return to our kill-loot-kill cycle once again.
