Skyrim mods can be awesome and there are a ton that have been created. Everything from Thomas the Tank Engine and Super Mario to Randy “Macho Man” Savage have found their way into the PC version of the game.
Remember the days when ticker tapes would continuously churn out stock prices? Unless you’re somebody’s great grandparent, probably not. People have gone paperless these days, rendering these machines pretty much useless. Or are they?
Fallout 3 has some of the most depressing scenery and environments I’ve ever seen in a video game, which is why I can appreciate the Badass Wasteland Restoration mod. Not only does it have a badass name – and a badass in the name – it also adds trees, bushes and grass to make post-nuclear holocaust America much easier on the eyes.
Here’s another mod that makes me wish I had a decent gaming PC. Admittedly I discovered this a bit late, but it’s just too silly not to share. YouTuber darthgir2 rounded up some of the Pokémon and dropped them into the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout.

Do you get pumped up at the thought of assembling your own PC? Do you regularly find yourself surrounded by circuit boards and the smell of solder? Do you adore Arduino? Then you’ll love Atelier Kurth’s Happy Covers, awesome pillow covers with electronic parts printed on them.

The Destroyer combines an electric guitar, mandolin and that wonderful outer-spacey-squealy instrument – the theremin – in one compact package.
I’ve certainly seen my fair share of Nintendo portable casemods over the years, but I have to say that this Gamecube handheld is one of my new faves.
I suppose it’s because this is modder techknott’s second Gamecube portable that it’s so well put together.
There is an exhibition coming to the Exploratorium in San Francisco showcasing some neat modded computers.
It’s called Rods & Mods: The Kustom Kulture of Radical Computer Modification and it’s happening next February. Are PCs this generation’s muscle cars?
