Fancy a desk that multitasks as your uber rig and glow-in-the-dark deco?

Fancy a desk that multitasks as your uber rig and glow-in-the-dark deco?

Cooler Master organized a case mod competition, and there are really some very amazing mods that surfaced from this competition. But the coolest is probably this one, a rig that is built in a desk.

This isn’t really the first time I saw someone stuffed a rig into his/her desk, but this is the first that I saw with a custom water cooling setup. Check out more of the mods after the jump.

Arduino geiger counter brings open source radiation detection to geeks and otakus

Ever since the Fukushima nuclear crisis caused by the earthquake and tsunami in March, radiation and nuclear meltdown have become a much talked-about topic. People are becoming more wary of radiations and nuclear waste. Now, if you’re curious and want to know about the radiation in your surroundings, you’ll need a Geiger counter. However, where the hell can you get one? They’re not stuff sold in Ace hardware or your local convenient store.

Nerd heads will love this alternative and geeky Geiger counter by the Libelium gang. En route to the Tokyo Hackerspace as we speak, the Radiation Sensor Board for Arduino is a low-cost alternative to existing devices. It’s available now either with a compatible geiger tube for €95 ($135) or without for €65 ($50).

And we’re live! Streaming on the net in style!

We’ve seen many movies and drama, and at times they show DJs and radio announcers talking in the room with the “On Air” light on. It’s a cool thing to have, as it’s a statement. But these days where many people stream their radio through online and be an online DJ, you don’t get that cool bulb anymore, unless you do something like this guy.

Apple TV gets teardown, shares similar parts to iPad

Apple TV gets teardown, shares similar parts to iPad

Like all electronic devices these days, the Apple TV gets its fair share of teardown by the itchy hands of iFixit gang. The teardown reveals an 8GB of storage provided by a Samsung K9LCG08U1M NAND Flash chip, which is the same one found in the iPad. There’s also the exact same markings on its Apple A4 processor as the iPad and new iPod touch, K4X2G643GE (not the same as the iPhone 4, as it turns out), the exact same Broadcom BCM4329XKUBG 802.11n WiFi / Bluetooth / FM chip as the iPad, and at 256MB, the same amount of RAM. That’s a lot of ‘same found in iPad’. IFixit noted that there are solder pads near the side of the logic board, which look to be a perfect fit for an Apple dock connector. See how the teardown goes over at iFixit.

Get yourself the Iron Man Repulse Blaster that bleeps!

July 29th, 2010

Fancy Iron Man yet your new hand-blaster from Toys’R’Us is letting you down? When it comes to cosplaying, some fans are downright serious about it, and sometimes go all-out in their costumes and gadgets. Whether it is crafting a life-size Buster sword or a Transformers costume that can actually transform, countless sweaty and smelly hours will be poured into these props. If that’s the sort of thing you enjoy, then you might want to check out this awesome repulse beam blaster. Sadly, the name’s the only cool thing, because you can’t really destroy your house wall with this. What a relief for mums.
