Mods

The Bentley Ultratank

The Bentley Ultratank

A Bentley Continental GT is already quite the impressive vehicle, but it wasn’t enough for Kosik of AcademeG to leave well enough alone, and decided to upgrade his with tank treads. You can check out the full build log for this beast on their YouTube channel. Turn captions on.

Photoreal Minecraft

Photoreal Minecraft

The block-building game Minecraft is known for its incredibly rudimentary object textures. But game modder hodiltoN decided the game was due for an upgrade, and created a series of realistic textures for the game, which look especially nice when lit with using the SEUS PTGI shaders.

Amped-up Power Wheels Jeep

Amped-up Power Wheels Jeep

All that remains from the Disney Princess Power Wheels Jeep is its pink plastic shell, but The Grind Hard Plumbing Co.’s latest build is simply awesome. The tricked out one-seater now has a 50hp CRF 450 dirt bike engine, and an off-road suspension, making for tons of fun in the dirt.

Making a Mini Mutt Cutts Van

Making a Mini Mutt Cutts Van

One of the most iconic vehicles in the history of cinema has to be the hairy “Mutt Cutts” van from Dumb and Dumber. Hot Wheels enthusiast baremetalHW decided to replicate the hirsute Ford Econoline van in miniature by modding an off-the-shelf toy.

Electric Foam Dart Mod

Electric Foam Dart Mod

“I’m not gonna ship you guys something you can’t hurt yourself with.” Sufficiently Advanced made a modded NERF gun that shoots electrified darts. His latest version features contact points wide enough to momentarily shock people. Check out the build at 0:58, and the tests at 5:23.

Tesla + Honda = Teslonda

Tesla + Honda = Teslonda

Automotive madman Jimmy Built managed to cram the drive unit from a Tesla Model S and the battery pack from a Chevy Volt into an old Honda Accord. The result is a crazy lightweight car that can do 0-to-60 in about 2.7 sec, and sounds like a remote-controlled toy doing it.

NERF Rival Minigun Mod

NERF Rival Minigun Mod

Captain Xavier shows off one of the coolest NERF builds we’ve ever seen – a Rival minigun that can fire up to 20 rounds per sec, and up to 2000 rounds from a backpack ammo supply. Even if it didn’t work, we’d be intimidated by its looks. Firing demo starts at 18 minutes.

Apple Pencil Pencil Mod

Apple Pencil Pencil Mod

While there are skins out there that allow you to customize the look of the Apple Pencil, we really love what Cedric Chase did with his. With a little sandpaper, fabric dye, and paint, he was able to make his digital stylus look just like a real pencil.

Bicycle Circular Saw

Bicycle Circular Saw

For no other reason than to prove that it could be done, I Did a Thing ripped apart a perfectly good bicycle, and turned it into a pedal-powered circular saw. It seems to us more like some sort of torture device out of a horror movie than a useful power tool thogh.

Fully-armed Vacuum Robot

Fully-armed Vacuum Robot

Weapon maker Joerg Sprave is always up for a challenge. When the makers of the game War Robots asked him if he’d build a robot, he obliged them with the world’s deadliest vacuum cleaner – which carries and fires a Glock. Never yell at this robot for missing a spot!

Playing the Nintendo Guitar

Playing the Nintendo Guitar

Musician Rob Scallon shows off a sweet electric guitar that not only looks like a Nintendo console, it still plays games thanks to an NES Classic Mini embedded inside. Drop by Reverb.com by 12/19/18 for a chance to win this exact same guitar.

Jaguar F-TYPE Rally Car

Jaguar F-TYPE Rally Car

Jaguar’s sporty two-seater got a makeover as a proper rally car, complete with a 1.6-inch suspension lift, grooved disc brakes, a roll cage, racing seats, quad rally lights, a limited-slip diff, and a mechanical handbrake for sliding through corners.

Supersonic NERF Gun

Supersonic NERF Gun

I did a thing bought some tampons. But that’s not the only thing that the YouTuber shows off in his video, the highlight of which is a high-powered NERF weapon that he modded to fire the feminine hygiene products as its projectiles using compressed air. Don’t try this at home.

Grand Theft Auto V Magneto Mod

Grand Theft Auto V Magneto Mod

JulioNIB’s Grand Theft Auto V mod lets you play as the Master of Magnetism. As Magneto, you can manipulate vehicles, even airplanes and trains. You can also deflect bullets, grab weapons and fire them, and turn wind turbines into giant blades of destruction.

Fallout: Miami Mod (Trailer)

Fallout: Miami Mod (Trailer)

A group of Fallout fans are making a DLC-sized mod for Fallout 4. Fallout: Miami takes place in the titular city, which is ridden with sandstorms and three factions vying for control. It will have its own quests and story as well as new items, weapons and vehicles.

Rival Jupiter

Rival Jupiter

NERF mod fanatic Out of Darts shows off a totally awesome new custom dart gun – a full-auto pistol that fires NERF Rival foam balls at 100 feet-per-second. DIY kits should be available this Summer in his Etsy shop for $99.

Jet Powered Micro Scooter

Jet Powered Micro Scooter

Colin Furze made his son the coolest kid on the block by modifying the kid’s scooter with an electric jet engine. But don’t worry, Furze restrained his inner madman this time. The scooter is just powerful enough to move the kid from a standstill.

Adam Savage’s Mega NERF Blaster

Adam Savage’s Mega NERF Blaster

We’ve seen some awfully impressive NERF weapons over the years, now Adam Savage throws his hat into the ring with an impressive one-day build of a NERF Rival Nemesis that has a removable see-through magazine to expand its capacity to 1,000 rounds per load.

Barbie Car Engine Swap

Barbie Car Engine Swap

Grind Hard Plumbing Co. took a Barbie Power Wheels Mustang and hopped it with a Honda dirt bike engine up so its power and speed match its muscle car looks. Sure, it’s basically a go-kart with a plastic body now, but it’s still awesome and we want to take it for a ride.

DIY Lightsaber Theremins

DIY Lightsaber Theremins

After wowing us with an organ made from Furbys, Look Mum No Computer is back with a slightly less ambitious, yet still cool project – a pair of lightsabers modded with an accelerometer so it can be used as an analog input controller for a synthesizer.

Nintendo Switch LEGO Upgrades

Nintendo Switch LEGO Upgrades

The Nintendo Switch is a pretty nifty gaming system all on its own, but there are a couple of ways in which it could be improved. LEGO builder vmln8r shows off a few accessories they built to enhance the system. The controller rail is a 3D printed part you can download here.

Triple NERF Rival Nemesis

Triple NERF Rival Nemesis

NERF modder Coop772 combined three Rival Nemesis blasters into a tripod-mountable turret that’s perfect for the old spray-and-pray tactic. Thanks to a custom hopper on top, the triple gun can rapidly load up to 1200 rounds with minimal user intervention.

Smart Fortwo Snownuts

Smart Fortwo Snownuts

The madmen at Shifted Interests swapped a 1000 cc engine from a Yamaha FZ1 motorcycle into a Smart Fortwo, substantially increasing its power and turning it into an angry little machine, perfect for making tiny powdered donuts – at least until they killed it.

Nissan 370Zki Roadster

Nissan 370Zki Roadster

Nissan had a little fun with this modded 370Z by fitting it with tracks in the back and skis in the front. Otherwise, the 332 hp winter convertible is largely stock besides the lifted suspension and widened wheel wells. The car will debut at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.

Liquid Nitrogen NERF Mod

Liquid Nitrogen NERF Mod

Giaco Whatever has an extensive history of making dangerous items. So leave it to him to transform a normally safe kid’s NERF gun into a deadly weapon, thanks to the pressure generated liquid nitrogen expanding inside the gun at room temperature. Kablam at 22:16.

How to Make a Hot Tub Car

How to Make a Hot Tub Car

We’ve seen hot tub boats, but a hot tub car? Only Colin Furze would be brave enough to take this on. As if the plan wasn’t crazy enough, he chose to sacrifice a BMW E30 convertible. Watch him try his best to seal and reinforce the car for its new occupant – a ton of hot water.

Rick and Morty GTA V Mod

Rick and Morty GTA V Mod

(PG-13) Wubba lubba mod mod! Rick and Morty fan zzcool and their fellow modders brought one of the show’s dimensions to Grand Theft Auto V. It includes the Cromulons, a working portal gun, Pickle Rick and more. It seems to have borrowed assets from Virtual Rick-ality.

Literal RC Fire Truck

Literal RC Fire Truck

(PG-13) “These are fire trucks. And fire trucks are a-holes.” Peter Sripol spliced a remote-controlled fire truck with an off-road RC car and modded it to spit flaming gasoline. If you’re crazy enough to replicate this, at least have some water on hand.

LEGO Saturn V Modded

LEGO Saturn V Modded

After watching Adam Savage and his pals assemble the new LEGO Saturn V rocket, we already wanted one. But JK Brickworks went and made it even more droolworthy, adding LEDs to the engines, as well as a speaker that plays sounds from NASA’s Apollo missions.

DIY Transparent LG G6

DIY Transparent LG G6

JerryRigEverything replicated the transparent glass back mod that he did for the Samsung Galaxy S8, this time on an LG G6. It’s relatively easier to pull off on LG’s flagship phone, but this is still a project that’s best left to the experts.

Electrified Porsche 911S

Electrified Porsche 911S

Lift the engine cover of this 1973 Porsche 911S, and there it is, a Tesla Model S power system in this vintage sports car.  DriveWithDave met up with its builder Zelectric to scoot around town, the steep hills of San Diego flattened by the massive torque of the electric drivetrain.
