3.5" 500 GB SATA Hard Drive Housing Project for PS3

100°
328w ago - Milky_Joe has created an interesting looking 3.5" PS3 Hard Disk holder for a school project. The inspiration for the the project was that 3.5" Hard Drives were a lot cheaper than 2.5" equivalents.

To quote: The case itself was constructed from black acrylic sheets (3mm thick for the dimension lovers out there) that were cut to shape with a laser cutter and moulded were necessary (i.e the top and bottom panels).

The pieces were stuck together using a chemical known as diachloromethane (I could give you the atomic structure if you wanted) which dissolves plastics before evaporating to leave whatever it was that was unlucky enough to be touching the plastic at the time well and truly stuck.

I used silver spray paint (I believe it was Ford Moondust to be precise) to spray on the motif and black fabric on the underside to prevent scratching. The HDD is held in place by a 2-piece bracket that sits snuggly within the curved panels of the unit to hold it tightly in place (or at least it would if I had the **bleep** screws).

One cable runs from the data socket on the hard disk to the PS3 and the other provides power from the mains with the help of an adapter.
 

Ben Heck's Latest Wonder Project: PS3 Laptop

500°
329w 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.
 

Project Origin- New Screenshots

200°
343w ago - From the looks of it, the Monolith team has done a great job at improving the lighting in the game and the textures look a lot crispier.

Of course, new weapons and new mini-bosses can be seen, but it's unclear which platform these screenshots have been taken (PC, Xbox 360 or PS3).

More screenshots can be seen here!
