Following up on their awesome cyberpunk city and medieval house computer case mods, Martina and Hansi from Nerdforge are back with an aesthetic upgrade for the PlayStation 5. After questioning the uninspiring looks of the console, they transformed it into a dwarven kingdom with molten lava pouring down its sides.
Awesome Case Mods
After seeing Studson Studios’ model of Howl’s Moving Castle, the guys from Nerdforge were inspired to build a similarly complex new cover for their basic black Xbox Series X. After building a form-fitting wood wrap for the game console, Martina used foam, junk, and toys to create the structure. Hopefully it won’t overheat.
If you want a portable Mac, you can pick up a Mac Book. But Scott Yu-Jan wanted something with better reliability. So took his M1 Mac Mini and converted it into a portable by creating a 3D-printed bracket that holds the computer and an iPad Mini for its display. Now, if only the computer ran on batteries…
As it is, the current-gen M1 Mac Mini computer is pretty compact for how powerful it is. But thanks to its thermal efficiency compared to the old model, it’s built into a case that’s bigger than it needs. Quinn Nelson from Snazzy Labs stripped down his Mac Mini and created a new enclosure that’s 78% smaller in volume.
Martina and Hansi from Nerdforge needed a new computer for editing videos. Rather than go with some off-the-shelf PC, they built a completely custom system that looks like a medieval fantasy house. The structure is wood, covered with miniature bricks and foam accent pieces. This thing both runs Windows and HAS Windows.
Console modder MakoMod went all out for his one-off Nintendo Switch. Based on Link’s handy tool in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the console has been decorated with pine wood, brass, automotive and acrylic paint, putty and varnish, and has LED lights on the dock.
