An XBox 360 into a Tissue Box/Alarm ClockJust because where can you find a tissue box or an alarm clock? Nowhere, that's right.BUY @ amazon
So, like a person in a zombie apocalypse making a spear out of old tools, this guy decided that he couldn't use his cell phone, or spend a cumulative $8 at Walgreens. No, he needed to take his XBox 360 and make an alarm clock out of it. My only hope is that it red ringed before it was done to it.
Otherwise this is almost like Shark Fin fishing (warning, link may be disturbing).
After re-wiring the XBox 360 to display the numbers in the BACK (which really, if you're going to do this is a bad choice), he decided to make what used to be the DVD/CD slot into a tissue holder -- which really makes sense. They should make more alarm clock/tissue holder combos as they are two things every guy should have at their bedside.
But making it so that the BACK of the XBox 360 shows was probably a mistake, since that's really the ugliest part of the system.
Maybe this guy got a PS3, or maybe he got sick of playing good multiplayer games with a huge amount of people?
The NES LunchboxNot ruining a perfectly good video game system that will not only be a HUGE collectible in ten years, but will probably still work at that time (by using a broken system), blogger Fluctifragus completely gutted an original NES and made, admittedly, the coolest lunchbox I've ever seen.BUY @ amazon
For step by step instructions on how to make this bad boy, go here (but ONLY if your NES is broken).
A Wallet Made of Old Atari CartridgesFinally making appropriate use for the E.T. Atari game, a man who calls himself Nilesz is selling these beauties over here.BUY @ amazon
The okay part about this is that he takes mail-in requests, given that your cartridge is in the right condition.
What he does, basically, is that for $55 he takes absolutely everything out of the existing cartridge and replaces it with hinges and nothing, so you can fit all your cards and money into it.
The best part is that you'll always carry a cartridge around with you.
The worst part is that you're using a piece of pop culture that will never again be re-made to keep your money in, and that you'll probably break it within a few weeks.

An Atari Lamp, Made of a Console and Multiple GamesThis is like a lamp made of panda genitals, elephant hearts and bald eagle egg shells.BUY @ amazon
Sure this looks like of cool, but why would you need this when you still don't own that awesome lamp from A Christmas Story?
But no, some talented bastard decided to cut up a bunch of box art, glue a bunch of games together and re-wire the Atari so that it works as a lamp.
Sure, this is clever as hell, but is it wasteful? Yes.
Is it awesome? Admittedly, yes. Click above to watch the video on the making of this contraption.

Have you ever wanted to make a wireless router out of a Nintendo cartridge? Well then today's your lucky day, because someone has figured out how to do just this.
It's kind of a waste of a Nintendo cartridge but this one is actually so complicated that if you can manage to pull it off, you kind of deserve it. Kind of like that guy who really wanted to hunt and kill an adult T-Rex in The Lost World (except that you'll pull it off).
Do you have an old NES cartridge? How about soldering iron and a dremel? Sweet! Then you, friend, are in for a Sunday (or weekday, if you're unemployed or a morning person)!
