PC Case Mod: That’s So Tron!

This is one ill case mod. That’s slang for “well done and sexy,” which is exactly what Nick Falzone was going for with this computer case inspired by a Beijing building. This concoction of wood and circuitry looks to be a mash up of Tron and the Borg cube, minus the corrupt programs and assimilation. Because Nick is such a ...

Turn Your iPhone/iPod Touch Into A MIDI Controller

The best things in life are free, no question about it. But even if it wasn’t free, I’d most likely buy iTouchMidi, a program for both OS X and Windows that will receive MIDI signals from your iPhone or iPod Touch via WiFi. Pretty insane right?

You Can’t Do That On Television

Know why? Because this is a plush TV set. It’s simply gorgeous. Color test on the screen, white bezel – fantastic. No one knows who made it and no one will ever find out. That’s because Marc Summers has a grudge. A grudge against the world. Happy Friday. Link [via]

“Is That Rob Halford?”

Straight out of the cover of a Judas Priest album, this “thing” looks to be a steampunk steed from Hell. Dubbed “Lrry,” it’s a rideable motorcycle/robo-horse constructed by the Mutoid Waste Company in London. The best part about it is it’s 100% recycled. Biker gangs will be running for the hills.

DIY: Paper Airplane Launcher

Now, this is interesting. An electric paper plane launcher kit that you put together yourself. Too bad the entire point of crafting a paper airplane is to wing it at someones head. With this launcher, you not only miss out on choosing your targets, but you also waste precious time building it. Time that’s better spent putting together more paper ...

Use Korg DS-10 Software As A Talkbox

Here’s a video of a gentleman from Japan using his Nintendo DSi, the microphone, Korg DS-10 software and a bendy straw. He then proclaims it’s a “Talkbox! Talking modulator!” I couldn’t agree more. If you’re looking to live out your Peter Frampton fantasy, this is as cheap as it gets. Just don’t embarrass yourself with a similar Youtube video. Link ...

Ripsaw MS1 Homemade Tank

Two things are fantastic when made at home: lemonade and tanks. Two brothers from Maine built this tank they call the Ripsaw MS1. It’s controlled by two people, a driver and a gunner. The most impressive feature is that it can hit 60 MPH in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 80 MPH. Not too shabby. Link [via]
