Hookah Computer Case Smokes The Competition

I've smoked out of a few hookahs in my time and I can tell you their precarious at best.  Why so?  Burning hot charcoal sits perched on a tall and some what top heavy apparatus.  One tug of the tub and it will all come toppling...

The hay day of the original NES might be far behind us, but that didn't stop one modder from bringing a little of the old to the new.  Called the NEStickle, it combines the NES console from the 80s with a Sanwa joystick and is ...

iPhone Controlled Minivan (video)

[GR]oHDwKT564Kk[/GR] It's as if we need further proof that the iPhone can do just about anything. Using the same platform used in the 2007 Darpa Urban Challenge (an autonomous vehicle system) the Spirit of Berlin team built an ...

G4 Motorcycle, I Probably Shouldn’t Even Bother Asking

WTF.  Top speed of the Mac G4 Motorcycle  is rumored to be about 30mph.  That's a hell of a lot faster than my current G4, which currently sits idle in my bedroom due to a bunk hard drive.  I'd like to see the douches at the Ge...

NES Door Bell Mod Will Have You Gaming At The Door (video)

It wasn't too long ago we saw an old NES controller modded to fit a Samsung mobile phone.  Yeah, it was gimmicky, stupid and required little to no engineering skills of any sort.  The NES Door Bell mod on the other hand is the ...

Super Nintoaster: A Super Nintendo Toaster (video)

Sure, there's no utilitarian purpose for jamming a Super Nintendo into a toaster case, but based on my experience every great video game system deserves a new skin.  There isn't too much to talk about, but of note the construct...
