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.

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?!

Project : Ring Light

Project : Ring Light

 

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.

Project: Subwoofer

Project: Subwoofer

 

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.

Hardware Components with Sketchup

Hardware Components with Sketchup

 

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.

Project: Passive

Project: Passive

 

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 didnt 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?

Animating Multilayered Engravings

Animating Multilayered Engravings

 

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.

Project: Eutanasia

Project: Eutanasia

 

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.

Project: GhettoBlaster

Situation - A demand for a portable and self powered audio solution. Two weeks time and 250 euro budget: realistic equation?

Baby SATA

Baby SATA

 

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.

LOGiWOOD

LOGiWOOD

 

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.

Foot Pedal Mod for Rotary Tools

Foot Pedal Mod for Rotary Tools

 

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.

MOO6

MOO6

 

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.

Wooden Spire

Wooden Spire

 

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 havent built anything out of wood since comprehensive school, so I was a bit excited how a computer case would turn out.

Embryo Zero

Embryo Zero

 

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.

Project: HybRed

Project: HybRed

 

I have always liked small computers, partly because they are aesthetical, and partly because I like going to LAN-parties. Someone might say "Why dont you buy a laptop?" Well you cant get a gaming capable laptop for a decent price and you cant even talk about upgradeability with laptops. I dont 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.

Kameran akut ladattu ja kuva rpsisty :P

Kommentteja kiitos :)My DIY projector at the moment. I used a 15" TFT (1024x768) and an old OHP. So far the project has cost about 0 because I got the screen and the OHP for free. The TFT panel is cooled with two 8cm fans (the little pieces of tape and paper are just for testing the cooling until I cut the missing pieces for it).

I noticed that the OHP is almost completely same as the one willek used in his DIY projector, only the front panel is different. The lamp is a 24V/250W halogen.

The projector isn't fully finished yet because I'll paint the used plywood and other parts black and cut some light masks, maybe from a thick black fabric.
