People rely a lot on quick fixes to get themselves through the day. Broke the frame on your glasses? There’s Scotch tape for that. The sole on one of your shoes peeling off? There’s Super Glue for that.
I get that you might need a keyboard to get things done with your tablet. It’s even better when that same Bluetooth keyboard doubles as a case and a stand, but iLuv’s new WorkStation series is a bit much for my taste.
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.
I’ve been holding back on purchasing Deus Ex: Human Revolution because I still have other games I’ve yet to finish – Radiant Historia! – but if you’re one of the voracious types who’s already finished the game three times, check out this slick mod by Eidos forum member gibbed.
While Razer would like to call it the “World’s First True Gaming Laptop,” it certainly isn’t, but the new Razer Blade has got a host of impressive features which might attract hardcore gamers to this platform.
Facepunch members Technicolour and Divran are working on making Yo Dawg video game moments possible in the popular Source-based sandbox “game” Garry’s Mod. The two coders have managed to make an emulator of the Intel 8080 8-bit microprocessor.
Over the years, I’ve written about a wide variety of computer casemods based on vehicles ranging from cars, to motorcycles, to tanks, to spaceships. But this is the first mod I’ve seen with a computer built into a train.
It seems like game makers are making some very questionable decisions with their games lately. First there was the whole Diablo III thing that left us scratching our heads, and now we have some disappointing news about Battlefield 3.
Like many PC gamers, Alexander aka SArd always wanted to have the best graphics cards so he could play the latest games. Back in 1998, SArd got his hands on his uncle’s PC, which had an Intel Celeron 266 CPU – the first ever Celeron processor – an S3 ViRGE DX graphics card and 2MB of RAM.
Two great franchises far, far away collide in Call of Duty: Galactic Warfare, a Star Wars-themed mod for Call of Duty 4 created by BlackMonkeys. The mod is a total conversion of CoD 4, and comes not just with new maps but with new player avatars, weapons and even a new killstreak.
Here’s one of the stranger computer mods I’ve seen in a long while. No, you’re not looking at the latest in teledildonics. Nope, what we’ve got here is a Windows PC made from an old lingerie mannequin.

Whether you’re a Trekkie, a Trekker, or just a computer geek, you’re going to be impressed by this casemod, based on a fictitious starship based on the USS Voyager. Actually, it’s not really a casemod – the Intrepid Mark II Class USS Eurisko is a complete scratch-built PC.

German tinkerer Thechoozen from Cologne built this incredible-looking WALL-E robot that has a mini PC inside. That’s not all. The whole thing was made out of sheet metal and also has an RC unit so that this case can actually move around, and he has a pair of webcams hidden behind his eyeballs to capture a 3D POV image wherever WALL-E roams.
