Mod adds LEDs and force feedback to DS Lite

Our biggest complaint about the DS Lite has been its woefully small number of LED lights. Thank goodness for modders then, because Tailor Made Toys has crafted the flashy DS Lite you see above. The kicker? It also has force feedback, which comes in two flavors: one is just normal rumble, while the...

Rock Band guitar mod turns on the magic of invisible light

Is the Rock Band strum bar too ... tangible for you? YouTube user adderd019 swapped out all that tiresome plastic in his Rock Band guitar for a beam of infrared light, turning it into an optical theremin of sorts. The way he explains it, it sounds simple -- merely add an LED emitter and a receiver...

'Super Monkey Kong' renders Donkey Kong in LEDs

The Meggy Jr. is a build-it-yourself handheld console with a striking 8x8 LED display, programmed using the open-source Arduino platform.

Super Mario Galaxy mod reaches for the stars [update 2]

Mamma mia, that's a nice mod. We'd expect no less from the ever-so-incredible Morpheon Mods crew, who've put together quite a nice collection of Wiis for us to gawk at. The Super Mario Galaxy theme of this particular mod, though, helps it rank as our favorite of the bunch. The LEDs are a nice...

When modding goes wrong

Well, you can't expect every Zelda mod to knock your pants off. In fact, you might want to put an extra pair of pants on to help shield your legs against the oh-god-this-is-awful rays emanating from this NES paint job. Consider the rest of your body tainted, your eyes suffering the worst of all....

DIY mod adds some awesome pulsating lights to the Wii

Oh, to have a Wii console such as this. Maybe it's unnecessary to do such a thing to your Wii, considering its sleek, simple white look is one of the things we love about it. Then again, it would be kind of cool to show off to others, like "look at me, I'm pretty awesome at doing stuff." And,...

Hori takes a stand (and puts LEDs in it)

Hori's USB Illumination Stand -- available in black and white -- seems straightforward, lighting up your Wii with LEDs as it siphons power off the console. But what's with the $19.90 price tag at Play Asia ($22.90 on NCSX), and why is that extra cord in the back also plugged into one of the...

Put your Wii on a new pedestal

We showed you Cyber Gadget's slick hat for the Wii earlier this week, so we felt compelled to also feature some new kicks for the console. That's what you kids are calling shoes now, right? Kicks? Unlike the standard gray stand, Talismoon's Wii bases come in a variety of colors -- Pink Chrome,...
