  • Asus Eee Pc gets a touchy-feely makeover

    Apparently adding a touchscreen feature to your Eee is as easy as adding a panel between the screen and housing and then soldering some stuff to some other stuff. You wanna know what I like about this mod? You can’t even tell that it’s there.  Asus Eee Pc with touch screen [jkkmobile] Read More

  • Want to hop-up that DS of yours?

    Want to hop-up that DS of yours?

    I’m not really into portable gaming devices, but if I had to pick between the DS and PSP, I’d probably opt for the former. That’s not to say the PSP isn’t a great device. I just don’t need everything it offers and it’s kind of bulky. The DS is great tool for learning as well. But if I were to some day be into things like watching movies or listening to… Read More

    Familator lets you play Famicom games on your DS Lite

    If the Game Boy Advance slot on your DS Lite isn’t getting much use, this adapter might be just the thing to bring it out of its funk. It’s called the CYBER Familator Lite and it allows you to play Famicom games and, with yet another adapter and a lot of extra work, NES games from the US and A. It’ll be a Japan-only device at first, due out next month. No word on pricing but… Read More

  • Giant NES controller houses normal, working NES

    Giant NES controller houses normal, working NES

    Here’s a giant NES controller for your amusement. It has a working Nintendo Entertainment System inside of it. The buttons on the big controller are functional but due to its size, you need a friend to help you navigate around the Mushroom Kingdom. Sounds sort of fun, no? Maybe it’d be a hit at some sort of party. I seem to remember finding something a few years ago that was… Read More

    Soviet TV case mod: Be happy you've got today's TVs

    Not too long ago, this Soviet-era wooden TV was the 1080p, 70-inch plasma of its day. Now it’s computer case mod, sitting casually atop your desk like a proud worker. Honor it. Case Mod: Soviet-Era Wooden TV [Boing Boing Gadgets] Read More

  • Biodiesel goes badass

    We don’t link much to DailyKos here. We try to keep away from politics, lest we finally piss off everyone, but this is something worth sharing. There is a man with an eighth-grade education who has developed a way to mod cars for biodiesel in a way that doubles their horsepower and doubles the gas mileage. It makes them faster and more powerful, using off-the-shelf parts. Detroit… Read More

    Collection of the worst PC case mods

    Every so often, Web sites, magazines, The Today Show, etc. all run “best PC case mods” features. Thanks to Wired, we can now see some of the worst case mods, like this one here. Yes, it’s an homage to Goatse, that stupid image that ruined so many lives over the years. There’s 12 truly dumb mods in the full Wired piece.

  • 'Sneaker Pimps' pimped out NES sneaker

    'Sneaker Pimps' pimped out NES sneaker

    Oh wow. We’re looking at what appears to be a working Nintendo Entertainment System built into the bottom of a shoe. This photo was apparently taken last night in New York City at the end of the Sneaker Pimps’ nationwide tour. Flyguy’s goldfish platform shoes from I’m Gonna Git You Sucka were pretty awesome but, come on, full blown NES in a shoe here. Sneaker Pimps… Read More

  • N64 controller mod, or cheap way to smoke?

    N64 controller mod, or cheap way to smoke?

    I like to keep things “real,” so let’s get it out of the way right now: this kid is probably smoking cannabis out of a Nintendo 64 controller. Don’t give me that, “it could be tobacco” nonsense, either. He doesn’t look a day over 14, and smoking tobacco out of a pipe (especially a pipe that looks like a cheap St. Marks bowl) doesn’t enter into… Read More
