See? The Dreamcast and the iMac Can Be Friends

What do you get when you combine the power of a Sega Dreamcast with the shitty display of an old 1999 iMac? The iCast, of course. The clutch part of this mod, however, is that creator Logicdustbin was able to squeeze the entire Dreamcast console inside the plastic shell of the iMac. The controller ports even run out the front. ...

Mac Mini Apple II Case

Apple II. Famous computer. Used one back in 1st and 2nd grade. Ugly as shit, though. That’s why I wonder what someone is doing putting a gorgeous-looking Mac Mini inside an ugly old, dilapidated beige box such as this one. To each his own I guess. You know, making a case mod from old Apple hardware isn’t a hard task. ...

Moleskine Notebook Hard Drive Mod

Here’s a nice little mod to start off your snowy morning. Found in the MAKE Flickr pool, Flickr user Shoxcorp snuck a full 3.5-inch hard drive inside a fine-looking moleskine notebook. Who would ever think that your private data is inside a journal? Notebooks? Private? You be the judge. Link

Mini Media Centre Case Design Of The 1950s

The 1950s saw the birth of many things we still detest to this day, like beatniks and Communist Cuba. While this Mini Media Centre designed by British design student Thomas Thomassen looks like the tail light of a ’57 Chevy. Except this thing was actually designed in 2006.

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 ...

PS360 Controller

If you’ve seen the film There Will Be Blood, there’s a scene where Daniel Day Lewis calls his adopted son a “bastard from a basket.” I think that phrase sums up this controller nicely. The action of the PS3 with the cumbersome feel of an Xbox 360 controller. Brilliant. Who dunnit? None other than Ben Heck himself. Link [via]

Dreamy Dreamcast Turned PC

The Internet is a glory hole of custom PC cases like this hideous Volkswagen case and this case with a face. It’s also a great place to find what DIYers (like Japan’s Akiba PC) are up to next. Having finished their SEGA Saturn case mod, the crew of Akiba PC turned their attention towards the late, great SEGA Dreamcast. What ...

It Takes Two To Make A Thing Work Right

Here’s a DIY system that can only be described as “horrendous.” Someone took a shitty Atari 2600 and shoved it inside a shitty SEGA Game Gear system. Both systems had their flaws, so combining the two should result in a big ol’ shitpile of a console. It uses the Game Gear’s backlit screen and uses the Atari for the actual ...
