GT Interactive released Quake 1 in 1996 and even in cartridge form on the Nintendo 64 two years later. Modder Sultim Tsyrendashiev gave the Vulkan port of Quake and gave it a full ray-tracing upgrade that anyone can try themselves. Once installed, you can choose from either a ‘classic’ option that keeps the original look or a ‘path-traced’ mode, which replaces light maps.
The Hurtan Grand Albaycin 30th Anniversary Edition actually started its life as a Mazda Miata MX-5 ND and is limited to 6-units worldwide. What sets it apart from the whimsical roadster are its wide fenders, vintage-style grille, and round LED headlights. It comes in three different colors: midnight blue, lead grey, and cherry red.

A glass PS2 is nice, but this PlayStation 5 console turned mystical Dwarven Kingdom by Martina and Hansi of Nerd Forge is much more interesting. It all started with a giant piece of wood that is both easy to carve as well as dense, making it easy to add multiple layers.
Remember those Classic Console key chains that you can still find at gas stations? Well, one modder turned one into what could possibly be the world’s smallest Nintendo Game Boy, or at least its shell. Inside, there’s an ESP32 processor, 8MB of RAM, 16MB of Flash memory, integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity, and even a built-in speaker.

At first glance, this just appears to be a Chevrolet Camaro outfitted with a body kit, but in reality, it’s a heavily modified Nissan R32 Skyline. This person transformed their 1993 Nissan R32 Skyline into what appears to be a Bumblebee knockoff from the Transformers movies with a hood that just doesn’t seem to fit right.
Ever wonder what Los Santos would look like as a miniature world? If so, then one modder has just the Grand Theft Auto 5 video for you. In the photography world, this effect can be called tilt-shift, or more specifically, selective focus, which is used to direct the viewer’s attention to a small part of the image while artificially blurring the others.
The Nintendo Game Boy Pocket was first released in 1996 and for some, it was the perfect size, powered by just two AAA batteries, which provided 10-hours of gameplay. Then came the Game Boy Advance SP in 2003 with a folding design, but what if you were to add a hinge to the Pocket? One modder decided to see if it was possible to add a hinge to the smaller handheld.

If the US Army modded a Dodge Viper, it probably wouldn’t look like this one listed for sale at J’S Auto in Hong Kong. Why is it so wide in the rear? It has been given a dually setup, which means that there are two rear wheels on either side, typically found on pickup trucks for heavy-duty performance purposes.

At first glance, this may appear to be a Toyota Supra, but in reality, it’s just a cleverly modded Mazda RX-7 by auto enthusiast Dylan Krucke. It wouldn’t look out of place in the upcoming Fast & Furious movie, thanks to its authentic Supra headlights with a darkened rear section to match the taillights.
Always wanted a portable Wii / GameCube handheld console? Well, now you can build your own, thanks to a modder called ‘Wesk’. Featuring a 5-inch (16:9) display with support for a stock VGA controller, all the controls you’d expect on a stock GameCube controller, dual 35x35x10mm heat sinks, two Z buttons, and a pair of 21700 Batteries good for up to 3.5 hours of play time.
