Classic hand-held gaming devices near to your heart? Take a look at this project where I combine one of the real classics with another arcade icon.
All the things that the idle mind comes up with. At first the idea seemed great but in the end the workload surprised a bit. But on the other hand, you should not think about these things beforehand as it would mean the death of so many great things. :) So, read on to learn more about my digital pinball build.
By combining some odd pieces together, one can greate something new and unique. How about a fridge inside a mobile phone?
When I was a kid, I wanted to play all these coin operated games but my parents didn't let me. From there on since I've wanted to build an arcade gaming cabinet. Now that I have the technical skills and financian means, why not?!
Instructions on how to make yourself a gadget that will heal all your bad moods and depression by only using light. No, you will not look at the light, nor hear it even though it enters your body via your ear!
When taking close up photos, the lighting can become a problem. The good old flash works most of the time but usually it leaves nasty shadows that do not go well with the photo. In this project we will deal with the problem by constructing a Ring Light that removes these shadows.
"Tutorial" on how to mod a 25 years old mobile phone to work as a HTPC.
I have a pair of Genelec 8030 speakers. They are good but bass reaches only 55 hz. Music sounds great but movies lack a bit of depth. This subwoofer project is based on 10" subwoofer driver made by Norwegian Seas and Hypex subwoofer amplifier.
In this article we'll show you updated instructions on how to lap the heat spreader on your CPU.
There are a couple of things in SketchUp that make building and managing models that much easier. One of these things is the use of components. These not only make editing easier, but also save you from many other headaches along the road.
I have wanted to build a fully passively cooled computer case since I had my first Athlon Thunderbird 800 MHz. That time the fan noise was amazingly high, and manufacturers didn´t much care about the noise levels, and didn't offer products for building a quiet PC. Nowadays a quiet PC is not much of a challenge to build, but totally silent?
Most of the engravings today are done to a single sheet of acrylic but there is no reason why one couldn't use several of them. Added layers give some interesting possibilities like adding different colors to the design, make the design feel more 3D and finally, they enable animation.
After getting tired with my old Antec Sonata II case, I really wanted to build something original for myself. The basic guidelines for the case were simple. As this case was going to be built to be used at Lan-parties, the case should be small, simple, durable, upgradeable and it still should be able to house a powerful system.
Situation - A demand for a portable and self powered audio solution. Two weeks time and 250 euro budget: realistic equation?
The idea of this mod was born when I was assembling a computer: I noticed that the distance between the motherboard's S-ATA connectors and the HDD was just about 10 cm and due to that I thought it would turn out really ugly if I'd just use a full length 40 cm s-ata cable. I decided to make a custom S-ATA cable for this case - Baby SATA was born.
I was thinking of a new project; what to mod or build next after finishing the Embryo Zero case. I searched through the Internet to see what has already been done, and I realized that good worklogs about computer speaker modding do not exist. Logitech kindly supplied me with z-5500 5.1 system as a basis for this project.
For time to time, one comes up with a killer idea for modding that doesn't cost much and improves the original product in ways such as looks, usability, functionalty or all these combined. I believe this following mod fits at least one of those categories. For me, this has been a true life saver even though I came up with the idea just only couple of days ago.
When not modding, I usually compose some music. As a input device for the music software, I use old Casio CTK 530 keyboard. One day I realized how ugly it really is, so it's time for modding, once again! In this project I'll continue to use minimalistic design which I find attractive.
This time I wanted to work with wood. My dad had a crappy old computer case, so I decided to build him a wooden case for a christmas present. I haven´t built anything out of wood since comprehensive school, so I was a bit excited how a computer case would turn out.
Being fed-up with my laptop's small display, I decided to switch back to desktop computing. When choosing parts for my new pc, I came to the conclusion that none of the ready ATX-cases were satisfying enough. I decided to build a case by myself and thought I could also save some money that way. In the end, this case ended up being more expensive than most regular cases but at least it is unique, MY case. As a foundation for my new case I used an old atx-case project started around 2002-2003.
I have always liked small computers, partly because they are aesthetical, and partly because I like going to LAN-parties. Someone might say "Why don´t you buy a laptop?" Well you can´t get a gaming capable laptop for a decent price and you can´t even talk about upgradeability with laptops. I don´t like Shuttle-like cube-cases, and cooling solutions in those usually suck. And of course, I love modding and building computer cases.
The mod that I'm about to show you is again somewhat different from the mainstream. For some reason I seem to like to work with computer mice and try to come up with different ways on making them... well, different.
