If you want to mount your iPad under a cabinet, Griffin has unveiled a new iPad cabinet mount that will help you. It will mount under, beside or on any cabinet anywhere as long as that cabinet is 14-inches deep or more. It also works hanging under a kitchen cabinet if you have the room.

This mount makes it easy to get the most out of your iPad. It has an articulating arm that moves 90-degrees forward and backward allowing it to fold flat under the cabinet when you are finished with your video, recipes or whatever.

Nintendo DS/Sony PSP arcade cabinet throws portability out the windowDid I miss something? I must have because I thought the whole idea of having portables was to, well have portability. You know, devices where you give up some graphics for the ability to play anywhere. So why would anyone want to make an arcade cabinet that plays DS/PSP games?

Just because they can. And I guess that’s good enough reason for any crazy mod. I may not understand why, but I gotta hand it to them, it’s unique. Check out a video below while I scratch and shake my head.

Guy turns HDTV into awesome digital pinball machine

Posted in HDTV by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2009

You may have noticed that it’s difficult to find arcades these days, no matter how many hours you drive around blasting some Loverboy or Huey Lewis and the News. It ain’t the 80s. What’s a Pinball enthusiast to do? You make some killer pinball games yourself, that’s what!

Take one BadBoyBill, who happens to be the admin of the HyperSpin forums. He used an HDTV, an LCD monitor and a 3D pinball program to build his own 1080p pinball machine. Oh yeah. Now you’re drooling and thinking back to those days at the arcade. The cabinet he created recreates the whole pinball experience and he can play any game he wants on the same machine. That is genius. Absolute genius.

Skybar Wine Cabinet beats drinking from the bottle

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on September 19th, 2008

Skybar Wine Cabinet beats drinking from the bottleWine connoisseurs will tell you that you have to store wine at the correct temperature. You can’t just throw it in your fridge. Plus you probably shouldn’t drink it straight from the bottle or serve it in a cup that has a cartoon character. You should store it and serve it in style. That’s where Skybar comes in.

It’s a “Wine Preservation and Optimization System”, that houses three chilled chambers to serve three seperate wines. A small LCD displays the temperature and you can even choose from nine preset chilling options. The device also features vacuum technology that helps to preserve wine for 10 days without any change in taste. It will even pour it for you. It will cost you $1,000, so I imagine some of you will stop reading now and go drink from the bottle.


C-MACC’S arcade cabinet plays every game known to man

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on September 15th, 2008

C-MACC’S arcade cabinet plays every game known to manIt’s no secret that we love all kinds of arcade cabinets. As cool as the C-MACC’s (Complete – Multi Arcade Console Computer System) cabinet is, it sorta takes some of the fun out of things. It was built by Over-Clock UK forum member Mayhem. We don’t question it’s awesomeness as it can play every emulated game there is, AND apparently every non-emulated game too. How? He stuffed it full of consoles of course. A PS3, an Xbox 360, a Wii and a few others along with a decent PC.

The cabinet even sports side-mounted buttons just for pinball games. No, we don’t question it’s awesomeness. I guess we just miss the old days, when a cabinet was dedicated to a single game. Once you’ve seen this, you’ve seen it all. What’s left? Geek depression setting in, that’s what. Because it’s all over. Nothing else to see. Move along. It wasn’t cheap to build. Mayhem spent about $8,900 on it and a few months of work.

Retro Space upgrades the classic arcade cabinet

Retro Space upgrades the classic arcade cabinetCreated by Martjin Koch, the Retro Space pays honors the classic arcade cabinets of the past. It’s a nicely designed cabinet that fits right in today and would also be right at home in a smoky arcade of the 80’s. But it’s got more then looks going for it. It also features arcade-quality Sanwa joysticks and the buttons are mounted on an anodized aluminum control panel.

Of course the layout supports classic 1 & 2 person games and even has the very necessary trackball. Here’s the cool part, it includes over 100 licensed arcade classics AND suite of emulators. If that’s not enough, you can use it as an HD media jukebox for your music collection with 1080p video playback on a 24-inch 1920×1200 monitor. We want one. Who knew a yellow arcade machine could be so sexy?

Speaker media cabinet hides your stuff
If you like recycling objects and have some extra time on your hands, then this Speaker Media Cabinet might be just the thing. You can store anything you like inside, though it won’t fit a body, you’ll have to continue using the old fashioned car trunk for that.

It would be a great place to store your entertainment media, like DVDs and console games. All you need is a pair of large junked speakers, several chopping tools, the usual array of nuts and bolts, and the will to succeed.

Gas Pump entertainment center

Gas Pump entertainment center
The T39 Replica Gas Pump Entertainment Center will take you straight back to the 1940’s and have you wiping off windshields and checking oil levels, while watching TV. It’s geared toward the dude that wants to spend nearly 2 grand on a entertainment center that has a maximum TV size of 13 inches.

It even has an illuminated globe on top to make it feel authentic. Despite it’s neat retro stylings and details, this is probably not the best choice you can make in Entertainment Centers. Clint Eastwood certainly doesn’t look happy about it. It will cost you $1,775. That money is better saved for real gas at the pump.


DIY Sega arcade cabinet is a geek’s dream

DIY Sega arcade cabinet
Sadly, arcade games have been replaced by consoles and the like. But there’s still a whole lotta arcade love from those of us who grew up in the 70s/80s. The story goes like this. A guy goes to Japan, sees these new arcade cabinets and of course, wants one. Problem is it costs a fortune to import something that size, so he did what any geek with a toolbox would do, he built his own.

And it looks amazing too. It has a large Sony display on top, a car audio system built in, and it houses not only his PC, but a PS3, and Xbox 360 as well. Have you wet yourself yet? Good. Me too. Now, since I’m too lazy to build myself one, any volunteers?
