Atari 2600 iPod Dock

What is the deal with all these people ripping apart perfectly good video game consoles in favor of upgrading them with the latest technology? Sometimes retro is better! That being said, this is a nice looking iPod dock. It’s a broken iPod clock/radio shoved inside an Atari 2600 shell. My guess is that this mod took no more than an ...

A PC Disguised as a Super Nintendo

I’m the console disguised as another console disguised as a PC. Actually, this is just a badass case mod. Some dude shoved his entire Acer Aspire One A150 and a CD-ROM drive shoved into a SNES shell. The cartridge acts as a loader for discs, which is pretty inventive. What I want to know is if the creator destroyed a ...

Twitter From Your Commodore 64

The above video shows a gentleman loading up a Commodore 64 with some software off an old-ass floppy disk. This C64 software is actually homebrew Twitter software used to send tweets.

Somehow, two days later, it unbricked itself and went back to OS 3.0, which is what’s needed to rock this tethering hack. Here’s how ...

Doom On The Palm Pre

Well, not quite. It’s actually an open-source Doom clone called PRDoom. Some sneaky hacker got it working on his Palm Pre, as shown in the above video. Looks like a good way to kill a couple hours at the office on Friday… Link

Sci-Fi Shades of Sheet Metal

What happens when you give a couple of nerds some copper, a CNC plasma torch and a lot of time? Simple. You wind up with a set of copper masks that look like they’re right out of Star Trek. The shades are actually based on a 2000-year-old design by the Inuit, an artic tribe from back in the day. I’d ...

Toys That Make No Sense: Knit Star Trek Meerkats

I don’t have a problem with Meerkats. They are a fine animal and an all-around interesting species. I just don’t see their place in the Star Trek universe. But, hell, why the heck not, right? Some of you Star Trek purists might be a little turned off, but for the most part, I think these hand knit Star Trek Meerkats ...
