Dodge Charger Defector

Ringbrothers took a 1969 Dodge Charger and transformed it into the "Defector" after over 4,700-hours of work.

Portable Nintendo GameCube


Hyperkin's SupaBoy S is nice, but this takes things to the next level. A gamer known as "AkiraModz" in the online modding community has created a portable Nintendo GameCube, called The Varia Cube, and it's a doozy. The case itself was handcrafted from a Nintendo GameCube ASCII keyboard and then painted in a Samus Aran Varia Suit-inspired paint scheme. Inside, you'll find an original GameCube (PAL) motherboard, a heatsink with custom fan, and a 7" LCD display. Other features include: original Nintendo controls / sticks, N64 joystick caps, a DS Lite directional pad, and a strong rumble feedback motor. The console runs Swiss software that can force any game into 480P and use a widescreen hack to force 16:9 (non-stretched) for the correct ratio. Its 6400 mAh batteries (4 x Panasonic 3400 mAh 18650) are good for 2.5-hours of continuous gameplay and 4 LEDs show just how much power is left.

The Nintendo Switch is a great console, but for those who prefer playing real N64 games without emulation, there's this portable N64, created by none other than Ben Heck. "To assemble the battery board, he takes a PCB and makes marks on back of it to indicate where the 3D printed fan assembly is. He uses the empty space to rebuild the power circuitry. He places four 3.7 volt cells on top of the unit. Ben goes with a 5" PlayStation 1 LCD, ironically because of his history with the Nintendo PlayStation Prototype. Sony probably liked 7.4 V because they were an early adopter of Li-Ion which scales in multiples of 3.4 V. The screen has an audio amplifier built into it," according to Element 14.
