Another Pointless NES Mod; Again, I ask Why?

Saw this over at kotaku today as I’m sure you did too, you Russian bot. Creative? I guess. Some level of craftsmanship? Sure. But just because I can solder the cats ass shut doesn’t make it right. Again we are faced with a…de-facing of classic nostalgia – for what? A wireless router? What’s appealing about […]

Make that Old NES into a DVD Player; I ask Why?

I guess the hands on creativity and workmanship is noteworthy, but in the long run this is more of cock-tease. Let me explain briefly. A friend comes over, you have your sweet NES/DVD player out on display.

Turn Your Old NES Into a PC

Oh Mods…gotta love ‘em. This is a pretty cool DIY for turning your old NES system into a PC with a CD/DVD drive.

8bit Paper City

File under [8bit Cool Stuff]. Artist/graphic designer Ashley Buerkett from Illinois has brought the 2D side scrolling world of Mario into a 3D plane.
