Mac mini mods, and NES hacks precede the dawn of time, but seeing the two devices join together in one glorious hack really warms our hearts. Brent Housen's buddy managed to get the whole Mac inside a NES case, and added a DVD writer via an IDE to USB adapter.

Pretty hardcore stuff, we're still trying figure out this whole "soldering" thing.
