Motorola SLVR with NES case

Motorola SLVR with NES case
Looks like those with way too much time on their hands and a little D.I.Y. knowledge produce some pretty interesting artifacts, and in this case, we have the Motorola SLVR that has been encased in an old NES controller. It surely takes away whatever beauty is left from the SLVR, but on the exterior, things look rather spiffy, fooling most people into thinking this is but a cordless NES controller you’re carrying around. Definitely guaranteed to raise stares whenever you talk into one of these, b…

Gibson guitars used in Guitar Hero III

Gibson guitars used in Guitar Hero III
Talk about bringing a certain amount of realism to video games. Activision has unveiled a new subtitle for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

Fret buttons are now black in color with thin colored outlines for a cleaner look on the neck. These wireless guitars are also highly customizable in terms of…

Input from the car’s actual steering wheel and gear shifts will be sent to the computer for processing, resulting in one of…

The Gamercize Sport gadget, Gamercize Power Stepper, and Ga…

Wiimote marries the real PowerGlove

A Japanese dude decided that the concept was way ahead of its time, and now is the right moment to reap it. He has gutted the standard control pad of the PowerGlove and replaced it with a Wiimote, while the actuators are hooked onto the…

Nintendo 64 gets TIE Fighter treatment

Nintendo 64 gets TIE Fighter treatment
The Nintendo 64 certainly wasn’t the prettiest console around during its time, and perhaps that helped it take the path of mediocrity by Nintendo’s usually high standards. Sure, AAA titles were there, but they were too few and far between, losing ground to Sony ultimately. Thankfully, we have talented folks living on this side of the galaxy that have come up with a TIE Fighter variant of the Nintendo 64, confirming the fact that Vader’s leet piloting skills were not developed during his younger …
