See-Through Video Game Consoles

See-Through Video Game Consoles

Video game consoles come from the factory in opaque plastic cases. BitHead1000 gives consoles ultimate upgrade by creating custom see-through enclosures. In addition to the PS1 here, he’s built a see-through PS2, a PS4, NES, and a Sega Genesis. The videos call them glass, but we’re pretty sure they’re acrylic.

Cyberpunk City Gaming PC

Cyberpunk City Gaming PC

Nerdforge previously built a computer that looked like a medieval house. Now they’ve gone in the opposite direction by creating this awesome work of art – a gaming PC that looks like a neon-lit cyberpunk city. After finishing the exterior, they flew from Norway to Canada to let Linus Tech Tips trick out the insides of the rig.

DIY PS5 Slim

If the past is any indication, Sony will eventually release a smaller PS5. Matt at DIY Perks couldn’t wait, so he got to work stripping down its parts and created his own PS5 Slim. By moving its power supply to an external brick and building a custom copper water-cooling system, he dramatically cut down on its size.

Wooden Nintendo Switch

Wooden Nintendo Switch

After winning more eBay auctions than he expected to, modder Peter Knetter had some extra Nintendo Switch handhelds lying around. So he took one of them and gave it a complete makeover – covering its plastic case and buttons with wood ones. It’s definitely thicker and heavier than the original, but it’s certainly unique.

Building a Wood + Carbon Fiber PS5 Case

Building a Wood + Carbon Fiber PS5 Case

The curvy, oversized tower design of Sony’s PlayStation 5 has definitely been divisive among gamers. After building himself an amazing brass case for a PS5, DIY Perks decided to build something a little more subdued, re-wrapping the powerful gaming system inside of a handsome walnut wood and carbon fiber enclosure.

Building a Brass PS5

The curvy tower design of the PlayStation 5 has been polarizing, to say the least. Whatever you may think of its looks, there’s no arguing that the brass case Matt from DIY Perks built is amazing. Cutting and bending the brass into the proper shapes took a tremendous amount of work, but the end result was worth the effort.

Sandcrawler Gaming PC

Sandcrawler Gaming PC

To celebrate his love for Star Wars and The Mandalorian (and his need to edit lots of video), builder WorksByaHurst decided to make himself an awesome gaming PC that looks like the Jawas’ sandcrawler. After cutting out a cardboard mockup, he used the pieces to cut out sheets of steel, which he welded together to form the PC case.

Building a Rope and Wood PC

Building a Rope and Wood PC

Despite its popularity as a building material, wood is rarely used in the construction of PC cases. Bucking that trend, DIY Perks built a truly unique computer system from wood, with rope trim. We love how he incorporated the air cooling system as a sculptural design element.

Origin Big O 2019

Origin Big O 2019

Unbox Therapy got his mitts on this incredible custom built tribute to Origin’s 2009 Big O gaming rig. It not only packs in a high-end Core i9-9900K gaming PC, but an Xbox One X, a PlayStation 4 Pro, and a Nintendo Switch, all in the same massive tower case. The design of its internals are incredibly badass.

Dreamcast Graffiti

French custom artist Oskunk gives us a peek of his workflow, using Sega’s last console as his canvas. Dude’s got some steady hands. Check out more of his art on his website and on his Flickr page.

Benjamin Bachmeier built an iPhone-themed case for his HTPC. It has a 40″ Toshiba LED LCD monitor (no multi-touch) that tilts to the side for a more traditional viewing set up. Video here.

Level Twelve PC Case

Level Twelve PC Case

Jeffrey Stephenson’s Level Twelve is a teak and bird’s eye maple PC case. The teak support box houses an HDD, optical drive and a USB 3.0 hub, while the maple box holds the main computer.

NES Cartridge Casemod

NES Cartridge Casemod

It uses NESp, a Chinese PMP, but this hacked NES Cartridge still rocks our plumber’s socks: it plays NES/GB games and sports a 2.8″ TFT LCD, 4GB storage, FM radio, and TV out.
