…Xbox 360 can now be played on its own laptop?

Xbox 360 Laptop

Ben Heckendorn has mad Xbox hacking skills, and has used his powers to create the world’s first (and probably only) Xbox 360 laptop. That’s right, I said laptop. It started when a friend of his asked if it was possible to build an Xbox 360 laptop. His response: “Sure, can you pay for it?” The rest is videogame hacking history. Features include:

  • 17″ wide (diagonal) 1280×720 progressive-scan LCD VGA monitor (for HD-level resolutions) Thus you can actually read the text in Dead Rising.
  • Water-cooled with custom-built radiator. Allows for a slimmer main body versus the mammoth heat sinks in a stock 360.
  • Built-in keyboard and Wi-Fi.
  • USB hub allows original number of 3 USB ports for user.
  • All-aluminum case, except for plastic keyboard / ring of light / screen control area.
  • Uses single customized “expanded” power supply brick for both screen and Xbox 360.
  • Breakout ports on back allow hookup to component TV, VGA monitor, sound system (analog or TOSlink) and even crummy composite video.
  • Size: 16.75″ x 10.75″ x 2.8″ Weight: 14 pounds (with water loaded).

All told, there is over $1200 in parts and machining costs in this beast, not counting man-hours to design and put everything together. Head on over to his site, where every step of his creation has been documented and photographed. While you’re there, check out Ben’s other portable videogame system hacks. I must say, he’s been struck quite a few times by the talent stick.

…Whimsy makes Space Invaders themed gift wrap?

Space Invaders Paper

Space Invaders Paper Detail

If you manage to get your hands on a new Wii or PS3 for Christmas (assuming they are even available by then, you are willing to wait in super long lines to get them, and you don’t eBay them off for thousands of dollars) then what better way to wrap them up than Space Invaders themed wrapping paper. Whimsy Press, makers of all things fancy wrapping paper like, has a line called Dude Wrap, with man themed wrapping paper (sorry, gift wrap), since “Let’s face it – guys never really grow up. So why should their gift wrap?” $4.50 gets you two sheets of this paper pleasure inducer, a small price to pay for geeky gamer gift giving.

Gateway

Gateway is a very fun 3D puzzle game where you have to solve a variety of puzzles to get from one room to another and exit the building. Sounds easy but the puzzles can be challenging.
