This $6 Do It Yourself geek project will be available at Comic-Con this week and should pop up for sale on Dyzplastics in early August. The possibilities are endless. Create an Android Steve Jobs or make it look like an X-Man. I want one.
It seems there isn’t a thing Colorware won’t paint. Now you can jazz up that new Xbox 360. The color options are near limitless. If you’ve already picked one up, Colorware is charging $175 for the send-in option.
If you want to buy new, that technicolor dreamcoat will cost you $500 bucks. Totally worth it for a part red, part lime, part purple Xbox right? No one understands your sense of color like Colorware.
As usual ColorWare couldn’t wait to get in on the BlackBerry Tour action. It hasn’t even been out for a month and ColorWare already has their paint brushes ready to give it all kinds of crazy colors.
You know the drill. ColorWare will take yours and give it a facelift for $129 or you can get a new custom one made for $750. They provide several choices to choose from, letting you pimp your Tour and accent different parts.
The folks at Colorware are at it again. They just can’t stand plain boring looking devices, when they can instead look like the abomination above. You too can have a DSi looks like a child’s toy, for only can be $374.
Or, you can send in your own DSi and get it returned to you for just $174. It’s like dressing it up in a clown costume if you ask me. Do you love your DSi or hate it?
Hey, you readers who still have not bought a Kindle 2. Is it the lack of colors? The Kindle does suffer from that sterile look. As usual, the folks at Colorware are here to help. They will gladly sell you a model that lives and breathes in color. (For a $599 base price).
You can also send in your own e-reader, which will cost you $199 per paint job. You will be without your device for 2-3 weeks, but when you get it back it will be wearing it’s new technicolor outfit.
Case mods don’t always have to involve LEDS and intense design work. Sometimes it’s cool just to keep it simple and paint a pretty picture on it. Here, someone took Sonic the Hedgehog and painted him right onto this XBox 360.
This is the kind of limited edition that Microsoft needs to be putting out there. This kind of paint job just gives your console a life of it’s own. I can almost see this Xbox sliding down rails and collecting rings when the owner isn’t home. That explains why the console is so hot when no one is playing it.
It had to happen. If a device is as popular as the BlackBerry Curve 8900, it will get the Colorware treatment sooner or later. Usually sooner. Just like the iPhone 3G, and your DS. So, if you want to beat your precious gadget upside the face with an ugly stick, the folks at Colorware will gladly help.
It doesn’t have to be ugly of course, you can put together something striking I’m sure. Just be certain it’s what you want before you commit. A solid color will run you $129, but if you want a different top, bottom, frame or sides, it will be higher. You could just love your device for who it is, which is the cheapest option and it will love you back. Maybe.
While this isn’t the most mind blowing console mod we’ve ever seen, this paint job gives your Xbox 360 a bit of Japanese flair. It was painted by deviantART member Ricepuppet and it looks like a pretty faithful Domo-kun themed console.
The console is pretty cool all by itself, but it even has it’s own matching controller, which we assume is functional. Hopefully the user won’t mess up the paint job while playing a shooter. It looks hungry and I bet it’s eyes seem to watch you while you are playing.
Ever wish you could paint like Jackson Pollock after he’d had a few too many beers? Now you can, and you won’t need to drip and splatter with a paintbrush. You can use your Wiimote instead, thanks to the DraWiing Jackson Pollock project.
It uses an IR detector, a projector on the floor and a Wiimote to recreate the drip-and-splatter artwork of the famous hard-drinking abstract painter. It looks pretty fun. ITP students Si Heun Cho and Ruxy Staicut created the set-up. It takes IR and accelerometer data from a wiimote to plot a point in relation to your canvas on the floor, projecting a nice paint splatter trail. Just like Pollock.
If a gadget has sufficiently proven itself and done well in school, won our hearts and minds, it will eventually be rewarded with the chance to get itself the Colorware treatment. That time has come for the G1 and the Bold, and we are very proud, despite not being their parents.
It will cost you $150 to dress up your current T-Mobile handset in technicolor, or the company will ship you a brand new one $725. The BlackBerry Bold will cost $139 and $674 for the makeover. The price is steep sure, but with rave colors like this, you can’t afford not to have your handset match your pacifier and fancy light-sticks.
Lately Dell has gone a little artist crazy with new colors and art for many of their models, so it’s not very shocking to see the Inspiron Mini 9 and 12 get into the action. There are five patterns by artist Tristan Eaton, with the same stuff you are familiar with under the hood. These painted Minis will run you an extra $50 over the base price of the regular models, $349 for the Mini 9 and $549 for the Mini 12. I’m sure you can’t contain your excitement.
When you’re part of the evil Empire, you have to conquer worlds. Street by street if you have to. There’s at least one street somewhere, where they made a mockery of the Empire almost as badly as the Ewoks did. Maybe even worse. That AT-AT must have had a long shameful walk home.
This Hasbro Star Wars vehicle was customized by Graffiti artists EASE and JK5 under the direction of SUCKADELIC. It’s done in the Aurebesh language, a fictional letter system created for the 6 Star Wars films. It’s being auctioned off at Christies, so you probably can’t afford it.
The service is available for the Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. New users can score one for as little as $198, while current thrashers can send their guitar in and get it colorized for as little as $99. If you are on a budget, don’t even go look at the eye candy, because you won’t be able to help yourself.
We love our gadgets to come in an assortment of colors. Hopefully they match our style or say something about us. To that end, Colorware will now spruce up Nintendo’s famed DS Lite. If Nintendo doesn’t offer a color to your liking, now’s your chance to do something about it. If you like, you can send in your current unit and receive it back in a whole new outfit. Or you can get a new DS Lite that’s already modified.
One cool aspect is that Colorware lets you paint the main frame, button pad, front port, bottom, L / R buttons and even the stylus separately…for and added fee. You could come up with some very cool and I suspect, also some very putrid combinations. Like the old Knight said to Indy…Choose wisely.
