Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 23rd, 2011

The Sega Dreamcast is still a favorite of many gamers, so it makes sense that you would want to customize it and give it a cool makeover. French artist oskunk93 has painted two Sega Dreamcast consoles with some wild custom art.

Posted in Musical Instruments by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2010

Rocking the guitar is cool. I mean, if you play a mean guitar, you get the gigs, the babes and the money. You can be a rock god. And with millions of hopeful rockers, come millions of picks, which are easy to lose. Well, the Pick Punch can punch picks out of all sorts of plastic items like credit cards, gift cards, and more. You can buy sheets of material from the company and make your own custom picks.

The Pick Punch sells for $24.95 and makes picks in the 351 style that are roughly triangular. They measure 30mm tall x 25.5mm wide. Each sheet of pick material is $3.00 and can make 56 to 85 picks.

Give yourself a custom Carbonite freeze

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on October 12th, 2010

Han Solo in carbonite is one of the classic moments from the original Star Wars trilogy. Now you can have your very own custom carbonite, with you instead of Han Solo encased in carbonite.

You can find out more details of these fun custom carbonites over at Paul Pape Design. If you are a bounty hunter, go ahead and get one of these and trick Jabba the Hutt into hanging it on his wall. Pretty neat.

So what if it doesn’t tweet. Neither does your current mug. You can make your own Twitter Mug over at CrowdedInk. Just enter your Twitter username and pay $15 bucks. Not bad right?

Projector wedding ring

Posted in Projectors by Conner Flynn on July 21st, 2010

How do you make your wedding ring stand out these days, among all of the rest? Put a projector in it. Groom-to-be Luke Jerram worked with jewelry designer Tamrakar on this bespoke projector ring design. It has a mini lens and transparent slide with a tiny image of himself and his bride that is ‘projected’ when you shine light through it.

The image can be changed to whatever you want in there, so you aren’t stuck with just one image. Sadly, this is just a one-off design, so if you want one you are on your own.

Colorware strikes again, paints the Xbox 360

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on July 3rd, 2010

It seems there isn’t a thing Colorware won’t paint. Now you can jazz up that new Xbox 360. The color options are near limitless. If you’ve already picked one up, Colorware is charging $175 for the send-in option.

If you want to buy new, that technicolor dreamcoat will cost you $500 bucks. Totally worth it for a part red, part lime, part purple Xbox right? No one understands your sense of color like Colorware.

Custom Halo Xbox 360 shows Master Chief kicking butt

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on April 21st, 2010

It’s pretty obvious that this isn’t your typical store-bought Xbox 360. But it is special. It’s the millionth Xbox 360 to be sold in Australia and New Zealand. And that’s why the special effects guys at WETA got to have their way with it.

The end result is awesome, showing Master Chief blowing a hole right through the console. The man clearly came to kick ass and chew bubble gum, only to find himself out of bubble gum.

Steampunk Harley Davidson

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2010

We’ve seen our share of steampunk devices around here, but we’ve never seen a steampunk Harley Davidson. Until now. The bike frame looks like a Steampunk skeletal structure more than a frame. There’s also a cool T-Sable Spring engine and of course a Harley-Davidson transmission.

It goes by the name “Barro”. I would call it a sort of minimal interpretation of steampunk, but it works and makes the bike look as if it’s alive.

The Shining Cuckoo Clock

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on March 14th, 2010

Cuckoo clocks are fun and amusing. At least they used to be. Not anymore. Not with this Cuckoo clock. This clock is all about the creepiness. It’s a miniature diorama of the “Heeere’s Johnny!” scene from The Shining. No little Cuckoo bird here, though.

Instead you get Jack Nicholson breaking through the door saying “Heeere’s Johnny!”. Shelly Duvall is also there, with a bad case of buttaface, letting out a scream. This happens every hour until you never want to see the movie again.

Custom Ghostbusters Wiimote Proton Pack Mod

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on February 23rd, 2010

This is pretty awesome. I’m not sure I love Ghostbusters enough to want to play it with this custom Wiimote mod, but Jack Rossi does. He created this proton pack and thrower so he can play the Wii version of Ghostbusters as realistically as possible.

The cyclotron features four blue LEDs which allow the player to know which player is selected or active and the Blue Power Cell shows you how much power the pack has. The Thrower has been designed with ergonomics and function in mind.

Resident Evil Monopoly

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2010

This isn’t your granddad’s Monopoly game. The Resident Evil version ties the popular game in with the popular board game. It was created by a guy named Nick, who spent close to 4 years creating it.

Everything from the streets to the Community chest cards have a Resident Evil theme. There are also plans to create custom die-cast game pieces and custom money. And here I thought the only place where zombies and real estate intersected was Wall Street.

Louis Vuitton Asus Eee PC

Posted in Netbook by Conner Flynn on January 28th, 2010

Nothing says gaudy like slapping an overpriced brand on your Asus Eee PC. That’s just what has happened here with this netbook for fashionistas who love to throw money away. This Asus Eee PC 1101HA has had its exterior covered in leather that bears the famous Louis Vuitton pattern.

It was specially commissioned by a saddler, and aside from the exterior, everything else remains the same. It’s no iPhone Supreme and at least it isn’t covered in Swarovski crystals. You just have to wonder about some peoples taste.

Predator Motorcycle

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2009

Predator MotorcycleSo you are out for a leisurely drive one fine Sunday and suddenly you hear an ungodly roar, then see this thing zip past. It went by so fast you can’t even be sure there was a rider. But you know a Predator face when you see one. It could mean only one thing. Invasion. And they obviously now have cycles. We are screwed.

It’s actually from New Jersey custom bike shop Pitstop Motors who built this Predator motorcycle on commission. It’s fully functional. The owner even got two tickets on it’s maiden voyage, due to onlookers holding up traffic.
