NES Cartridge Hard Drive Mod

Photo credit: Cheesey24 / Imgur

Repurposing an old game cartridge isn't something new, but this is one of the first projects we've seen with a custom label. Imgur user "cheesey24" started with an old hard drive and a Championship Bowling cartridge, but gutting the latter wasn't the easiest of tasks. Since Nintendo uses custom screws, he had to make his own tool - using an old runner from a model kit and a lighter to mold it - before cracking open the case. After some dremeling, a custom label from UnconventionalHacker and securing the hard drive, the rest is history. Continue reading to see the project from start to finish.

Lamborghini Murcielago Replica

At first glance, this appears to be a real Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, but it's actually a replica. That's right, the reason why all the proportions are correct is because rather than use a donor car, everything was built from the ground up, with a tube chassis and fiberglass/carbon fiber body by NAERC. Continue reading for a dyno pull as well as some spirited highway driving.

Batman Returns Batmobile

Millyard Viper V10 Motorcycle

First came the Dodge Tomahawk, now Allen Millyard has built his own version of the 500bhp 8.0L V10 motorcycle, called the "Millyard Viper V10". All parts for this street-legal bike were handcrafted in Allen's garage, and has since done over 5000-miles after its completion. It's also paid a visit to the Isle of Man TT, and achieved an insane 207mph at the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. Millyard said: "The engine sat in my garage for about two years," he laughs. "And then one day it just came to me. I would build an unfaired muscle bike. It had to work, it had to be road legal, and I had to be able to go shopping on it. I stripped the engine down to take away all the extraneous bits. One of the results is that the powerplant is now 10 inches shorter. And I took all the plastic off. Apart from the instrument pod, the motorcycle is all steel and aluminum."

This may not be the most complex modding project of all-time, but it does see an N64 installed inside a table, with the controller leads built in under the surface of the wood to keep the wires tangle-free. This leaves the top free for all of your drinks, snacks, Nintendo Power magazines and whatever else your heart desires. To top things off, there's even an in-laid pixel Mario made from wood blocks.
