Disassemble that and take out its lens, followed by making a lens holder out of ordinary cardboard. Place that before the standard lens using some poster mount and you’re good to go with a spanking “new” DIY macro lens, regardless of […]

This mod is still in progress, but it has shown promise as initial testing points toward a working screen despite having its keyboard removed and […]
08/20/2009, Remember the old school microphones that brings back fond memories of Elvis cavorting on the stage? This case mod will definitely give you that warm, fuzzy feeling all over again since it is modeled after the vintage Unidyne microphone that Elvis loved and used. Made from a combination of wood with an aluminum metallic paint coating, it is interesting to note that wires of the microphone also function as wires […]
08/17/2009, Here’s a mod that will definitely leave you drooling – the Xbox Micro measures a mere 1″ thin, taking all of six months to create. The Xbox Micro won’t be able to play the latest 360 games since this is but the original Xbox that has gone to the fat house and come back as a svelte new creation, turning even the diminutive Wii jealous in the process.
08/14/2009, While the iPod and iPhones are technologically advanced devices, there is always some room to spare a thought for the environment. That’s what this highly modified iPod dock does – it is a made to order product that is handmade out of cedar, working well with the iPhone 3G and bevy of iPod devices save for the shuffle. It will take around 3 weeks to produce and ship the custom […]
08/14/2009, We’re pretty sure that there are still a healthy amount of working Atari 2600 consoles available, so why not purchase one cheap off eBay and with a little technical know-how, insert a 5″ LCD display and joystick controls onto the console itself? This allows you to relive the classics of yore without having to take up the TV in the living room. Heck, this mod allows the 2600 to be […]

07/06/2009, Got plenty of spare time on your hands and want to create something different? While Ben Heck is busy churning consoles into a portable, handheld form factor, here we are with an arcade cabinet that handles both DS and PSP games, featuring a touchscreen right above the controls. Talk about a paradigm shift – too bad there is no real market for this, as it is but a fun DIY […]
07/06/2009, Larry Pesce decided to extend the range of his Asus EEE 4G Surf by throwing in an external RP-TNC antenna connector, offering detailed instructions here. The finished product doesn’t look unwieldy by any means, and in fact does resemble a somewhat natural image that might fool most people into thinking that it is part of the real deal.
07/06/2009, Ben Heck is back, and this time round it is yet another Xbox 360 that has gotten his attention, where he has turned this once-massive home console into a portable format, featuring a built-in Ethernet port, digital push button volume control, improved ventilation, flush-mount DVD drive and the much-vaunted Jasper motherboard. According to Ben Heck, the internal layout is just about identical to the previous model although this time round […]
06/23/2009, Check out this latest mod that involves the Eee PC 901 – it is mostly unrecognizable from its original form, where it has been turned into a Windows 7-running machine that is mounted onto a cabinet, giving you easy access to recipes as well as other cookbooks stored on the electronic format. Perfect for folks who love pottering around the kitchen, although it owuld be nice to see this thing […]
06/19/2009, Now here’s a console mod that will definitely make any pimpin’ gangsta character proud – the PIMPendo that has taken the humble NES console and literally pimped it up to something unrecognizable. We suspect P. Diddy would love to have one of these puppies around his pad, but he’ll be sorely disappointed to find out that the only Final Fantasy title supported would be those that come in 8-bit graphics. […]
06/18/2009, How many of you out there make sure you can access your private documents only when your identity has been confirmed by a fingerprint scanner on the notebook?

MyDellMini Forum member rich2871 has come up with a hack that allows you to […]
06/17/2009, This is one of the “hotter” Xbox 360 case mods around, with Hellboy being the main theme here. Created by Frank Gonzales (who earlier did up the epic Gears of War mod), this Hellboy case mod is absolutely stunning, where some people might actually be fooled into thinking that this was an officially sanctioned special edition version from Microsoft. We all know that hell is hot, and certainly having Hellboy […]
