Atari games redesigned in HTML 5 may bring back a flood of nostalgia, but they leave out a key part of the gaming experience: the classic hardware. Hard Drives Northwest filled that void by gutting a limited number of authentic Atari 2600s and stuffing them with modern PC components. Packing a Cor...

Truly epic casemods grace the humble pages of Engadget from time to time, but here's a spoonful of liquid awesome you might actually be able to try.

During last night's talkcast, we debated the validity of the most recent Mac mini rumors. I was in the "No Way" camp. I'm sure there's a new mini in the works, but I don't think that's it. At least, the machine depicted in that video isn't what will be offered to customers. I mean ... five USB ports...

You may remember deviantART member Ricepuppet from his days dressing up his Xbox 360 in Domo-kun stylings. He's back, combining our love for console paint jobs with all things Hello Kitty. No matching controller this time, but there's more than enough stars, shades of pink, and cuteness to make up ...

Here's the situation. You're sitting with a friend when she gives you some great information that you want to write down. Or, you want to share something with her, but your Mac is not running, and it seems like a hassle to wait for it to boot just to complete that simple exchange. What's a nerd to d...

You know, we're normally not very into the whole case mod scene, but every once in a while some whack job with way too much free time and talen comes along and completely blows our minds. In this case it's rendermandan's Motorized Madness, a vaguely steampunk reinterpretation of the PC replete wit...

Each August, we anticipate the start of the MacMod Challenge, a time for case modders to compete for bragging rights and glory (among other prizes). Last year's entries included the iMac mini LCD and the Tonka iMac. In fact, did the 2005 challenge produce the first iMac with "Intel inside?" The list...

So we recently threw together a little rig of our own, and though we made sure to toss in at least four fans for keeping everything nice and cool, we has no idea that for a lot more money we could get ones that pull double duty as obnoxious billboards for flashing the internal temperature. So woul...

Americans love their Football, and the annual Super Bowl that comes with it. But the question is, do they love it enough to buy Super Bowl XLI case mod off eBay? Seller stevenkeno29 seems to think so, as he has an auction (with an astounding 0 bids) up for a Blue Indianapolis Colts themed Xbox 360 ...

Fanboy David Hinkle sent us a link to a very well put together case mod. It's so well put together, in fact, that we'll ignore what kind of "fanboy" he is. Midianad.com has made a Blood Splattered Case mod, complete with obligatory hand print on the left side/bottom, and views of the console's innar...

The above picture is reason enough to leave case modding to the professionals. Klyde over at xbox-scene's forums proudly posted his first 360 case mod and was looking for a little feedback. The cutout of the Halo 3 logo was done quite well, craftsmanship is on par, but there is one tiny problem. T...

Color us impressed. Most of the mods we see and show you come from the US and consist of some pretty wacky stuff. Now, it is time for something completely different. The very talented moders over at YYJoy have been showing off their unique designs in an array of colors and prints. These mods can...

TeamXtender, the bad boys of 360 case design, are at it again. This time they have released a new design called Chameleon, which (surprise) changes colors using LEDs. Perhaps more interesting is their new custom design featuring the Master Chief (shown at right). Presumably, TeamXtender will offer c...
