Modder builds $  150 thermal imaging camera to help insulate his house video

Modder Andy Rawson thinks he’s found the secret to turning smartphones into super-cheap thermal imaging hardware. Inspired by his quest to find leaks in his old home and the high cost of professional gear, he set about building his own. A 64-zone temperature sensor connects to his iPhone via the dock, overlaying the data onto his camera display. He’s planning to open-source the $ 150 hardware, and an Android variant of the hardware is currently in the works — although details for both are currently thin on the ground, you can see his announcement video after the break.

Modder miniaturizes 5.25-inch disk drive, brings microSD support to Atari 400

You aren’t looking at a retro microSD card reader, you’re looking at an Atari-compatible serial disk drive that just happens to use microSD in lieu of 5.25-inch floppies. In a Zork inspired fit of nostalgia (we’ve all been there), hardware modder Rossum paired up an Atari connector with a LPC1114 microcontroller, capable of emulating up to eight Atari drives, managed by a custom, auto-booting app. The whole package is neatly packed in to a tiny 3D printed replica of the original Atari 810 disk drive, and is available for sale never — but don’t let that stop you: Rossum’s schematics are free for the taking. The word’s biggest little Atari drive is just a DIY away.

[Thanks, Francesco F.]

Modder turns RROD-stricken Xbox 360 into PS3 arcade controller, awesomeness

In the most recent of Xbox 360 hacks, a modder named Morris has crafted a PS3 controller out of none other than — as ironic as this may seem — a dead Xbox 360. That’s right, somewhere out there, a PlayStation 3 has slain its mortal enemy, mercilessly gutted the internals and now has a modded Xbox as its eternal slave. The case contains all of the buttons you need to partake in a classic beat-’em-up — a joystick, the four PlayStation buttons, R1 and R2. There’s plenty more to gander at in the source link and enough in the way of detail and instruction to get started on your own arcade stick too.

Modder adds FPS-style ammo counter to automatic weapon

It may not be the first time than an actual weapon has been equipped with an FPS-style ammo counter (or Aliens pulse rifle-style, if you prefer), but this add-on device built by the DIY-minded Michael Ciuffo is certainly still plenty impressive enough to garner some attention on its own. It simply uses an accelerometer to detect the recoil from the gun, and it can apparently be adjusted for use on a variety of different weapons. What’s more, Michael says that he’s already gotten so many requests for one that he’s planning on putting it into production. Head on past the break to check it out in action.

Accused Xbox 360 modder finds case pleasantly dismissed

The case of 28-year old CSU student Matthew Crippen has come and gone. Arrested last year on Digital Millennium Copyright Act violations — specifically, for modding Xbox 360s to enable them to play pirated games — federal prosecutor Allen Chiu announced on the third day of trial that the government was dropping its case against him “based on fairness and justice.” It’s not a complete surprise: according to Wired, on the previous day (Wednesday), an undercover agent testifying against Crippen claimed the defendant used a pirated game to test a modded console in his presence. That detail, required for the prosecution’s case (the use of pirated software), was never mentioned in any of the previous reports or sworn declarations, so once the judge dismissed it as evidence, the case against Crippen hit a snag. Source link’s got the full, very interesting tale, but if you’re patient, there’s always a chance one of the Law and Orders will pick up the story in the years to come.

Modder loveablechevy completes HandyDuo, her two year quest for portable NES and SNES bliss (video)

Modder loveablechevy completes HandyDuo, her two year quest for portable NES and SNES bliss

We never get tired of playing the classics, and we never get tired of new ways to play those classics — especially hand-crafted portable ones. A modder by the name of loveablechevy has been working on this custom creation for over two full years now, a combination of a RetroDuo gaming system, providing NES and SNES compatibility, with a PSOne portable screen and a whopping 4,250mAh battery. The resulting creation, shown in a video after the break, looks to be on the beefy side, but we would definitely make room for it in our backpacks.

Modder installs Windows 7 onto JooJoo tablet, gets touch working (video)

Yeah, we had a few issues with the Linux build installed on Fusion Garage’s JooJoo tablet, but were things really so bad that we needed to shoehorn Windows 7 onto the thing? Nah, but who wouldn’t enjoy that challenge? One darkdavy has somehow been able to install a fresh copy of Win7 onto his JooJoo, and while he notes that it’s currently running a wee bit warm, the touch panel is working and the battery is lasting around four hours on a full charge. Utilizing the stock hardware (a 4GB SSD and 1GB of RAM), he’s experiencing “flawless” 720p movie playback, and various other members are mentioning successful installs of both Windows Embedded Compact 7 (via MSDN) and Windows 7 Home. The only major hang-ups are the lack of accelerometer support and the inability to use 3G, but we’re pretty confident that both of those issues will be sorted in short order. Don’t believe us? Head on past the break and mash play, and then hit the source link to get in on the fun yourself.

[Thanks, Mark]
