New keyboard modded to look old

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2009

We have no idea why someone would mod a new wireless keyboard into the old looking one you see above. It must be a sickness or a dutch thing since this was created by a Dutch guy.

He took a Logitech Wireless Wii keyboard apart, mapped the key codes and did some soldering to make it all happen. But why? I guess I’m just not all that nostalgic about old keyboards. What do you guys think? Do you prefer this, or a new keyboard?

iPod Cases made from old 45 RPM records

iPod Cases made from old 45 RPM recordsNow here’s a case for your iPod that is actually interesting and looks unique. These cases are made from old 45s, with a plexiglass window and a cork liner. You have to love this merging of the old format with the new. It just makes sense. And looks damn good.

I love how you can line up the record label in various ways and the center hole of the record is lined up with the iPod’s scroll wheel of course. These awesome cases were made by Contexture Design, but sadly they are completely sold out of the 45 cases right now. You can see why.

Old PCs create a virtual sunset

Old PCs create a virtual sunsetThe human race has a ton of junk. The discarded excrement of all of our endeavors. It goes in landfills, sits around our homes and in general clutters up our lives. What do you do with all of that junk? Play with it of course. In this case UK artist Sandy Smith used hundreds of old PC’s to create a wall-sized gradient effect that mimics a “sunset” emanating from their monitors. Pretty neat stuff. Imagine all of the other things we could do with junk PC’s. I wonder if you could tan people using old monitors. Or would that be unsafe? Any volunteers? Pretty ones?
