As many of you may know, the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show is going on in Las Vegas. At this show, the electronics manufacters gather together and show off their new products. Among the exhibitors there, one of them caught my eye, Se2 Labs and their ITC One product.

The ITC One is a strange combination of...
  • Microsoft Xbox 360

  • Your choice of a Nintendo Wii or an Xbox 360 HD DVD Player (adds $450 or $300 onto the cost of the system, respectively)

  • Your choice of a DirecTV, Dish Network, or Comcast High-Definition DVR

  • Bryston Digital Sound Processor

  • ICEpower D-Class Amplifiers

  • Internal subwoofer amplifier

  • Transparent Cable Power Conditioning

  • iPod Dock

All for the low low (base) price of $25,000!!!

Goddamn! That's some pretty high end shit in there, and it's by far the best "home theater in a box" I've ever seen, but damn, it's excessive!

What's more is that according to Siliconera, you can't remove the Wii and get access to the Gamecube ports on the top of the system. Also, I have another important question about that ITC One. What happens when you get the infamous Red Ring Of Death?

You may remember a previous post about a cool hack called Extra Mario Bros. In case you missed that post, here is the video again.


So, I have received confirmation that this game does in fact exist. Since I wish not to be sued, all I can say is yeah, look in the right spot and you might find it, and that's all I got to say about that.

Thanks for the tip!

So, you think Guitar Hero makes you a rockstar?  Yet, your mighty axe resembles a children's toy.  Maybe something can be done about it.  Better yet, someone has done it already, right on time with the recent release of Guitar Hero III.

[brandon] decided to rebuild a Guitar Hero controller out of a real Gibson electric guitar.  Best part is he managed to do it at a budget price.  US$69 for the guitar (found at Target) plus $60 for the controller is less than $150... a budget price indeed.  I suppose it's one way to "hack the Gibson" without becoming "zero cool".

The construction method is similar to most other case mods... pull out the electronic guts and give them a superior new home.  Special features include using the guitar's volume tuning knob in replacement of the whammy bar, and the strum bar tucked neatly between the pickups.

The finished product can only be described as "very stylish, and competitive".  Certainly it would draw a lot of attention at your student dorm's next Guitar Hero tournament (which replaced the former air guitar competitions).

The creator of this is also interested in doing a similar guitar mod for Rock Band in the future, with a few more ideas to apply.  We can expect more to come.

Posted under Mods, ghostravel, Xbox mini, small

In 2001, Microsoft took their first steps into console video gaming with the Xbox.  Often criticized as being a PC in a box, the hardware's most noticeable feature is its large size and weight in comparison to consoles from previous generations.

In 2007, two years after Microsoft's cessation of Xbox production, a fellow named ghostravel took it into his own hands to remedy the size issue.  A year of toil, and some specialty craftsmanship (laser-cut custom case, reworked power supply, etc.) have earned him impressive results.

Ben Heckendorn's NEStari portableYou've seen multiple portable NESes, you've seen many versions of his Atari portables.

But have you seen one that does both?

Ben Heckendorn strikes again!

This time he's crafted a reasonably small combo portable that plays NES and Atari cartridges.  He managed to do this using his preferred NES on a Chip and bits from an Atari Flashback II.  Yes it does play both Asteroids and Super Mario Bros. 3, and changes over at the flick of a switch.
