154w ago - Today Engadget.com (linked above) reposts that video game console modder Ben Heck has unveiled his latest ruggedized, self-contained PlayStation 3 suitcase modification in The Ben Heck Show (Episode 9).
The military-grade PlayStation 3 is intended for use in Afghanistan, and features a 22″ LCD screen, built-in speakers, TV tuner, network switch and storage compartment.
Some pictures of it are below, and to quote: "The military-grade portable gaming system was designed and built for a couple working with the military overseas, and it's Pelican's iM2600 Store Case there on the outside keeping things safe and secure from flying shrapnel.
As Ben always does, he managed to carefully place an entire PS3 console deep within the confines of the enclosure, and he even threw in an integrated LCD into the lid to prevent any additional external hookups. Generator equals gametime, as they say."
188w ago - Today the well-known console modder Ben Heck has shared a video of his latest creation, namely a new PS3 Slim laptop demo!
To quote: "Making a PS3 laptop really wasn't an "uncharted" course for me.
Here it is, a new PS3 Slim laptop and this time it's black! With blue accents. Specs:
• 17″ widescreen 720p HDMI display.
• Built-in stereo speakers & headphone jack.
• Compartment to store power cord. (left side bottom of unit)
• Stylish pin striping to make games run at blast processing!
• More air holes than a stock Slim, not that it really needs them (cough cough Xbox 360)
You can check out more pictures and video below. Remember, if you have a crazy idea and the money, I can make the time!"
218w ago - Ben Heck has outdone himself with the minimal clean design of his latest gaming mod- a PS3 Slim Laptop mod!
This laptop sees Sony's PS3 Slim stuffed into a monochromatic chassis with 17-inch Gateway 1775w LCD throwing a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution.
There's even space inside to tuck away the power cord when traveling.
The pinstriped result is nothing short of elegant, sporty even, especially when compared to his PS3 laptop from 2008.
295w ago - Ben Heck put his skills to good use again in his latest project. This time he has turned a PS3 into a Laptop.
There aren't any details as of yet, only the picture shown below.
To quote: It looks like the PS3 is finally getting some hot mod love from console modding's reigning wizard, Ben Heck. We don't really have all the details since he hasn't announced the project yet, but the display looks like it's the one he used for the Xbox 360 Elite laptop, for a true 720p picture.
He's obviously been leveling up his already formidable powers though, 'cause this is one of his most polished projects yet.
