Morpheon mods

Ramon Stokes proved it was possible to build a business out of modding. Operating as Morpheon Mods, he became one of the best known modders on the net, accepting commissions from companies and wealthy individuals.
He’s vanished from the radar over the last year or so, but film director Kevin Smith and GTA publisher Rockstar are owners of one-off Morpheon consoles, and a small number of machines were sold on eBay.

Arcade NES

Arcades used to have Nintendo cabinets – The Vs UniSystem, Vs DualSystem and PlayChoice 10 – with a selection of built-in games. Many of these games were identical to their home counterparts on NES, but a few, including those classics Super Mario Bros and Duck Hunt, had significant differences.

You can always play these on a PC emulator, but if you’re a modder you might want to experience them on actual Nintendo hardware. And what better way to do this than to convert a standard NES into something functionally identical to a Nintendo arcade machine? This mod, by engineer Raphael Assenat, calls for some serious skill. Read the walkthrough at and see if you’re up to the task.

N64 laptop

If you’ve got a spare flight case, a chunky battery, a portable monitor and some wood, you could produce an N64 laptop like this one made by Hifeno. Apparently it goes for more than six hours on a single charge, which is way better than you can expect from smaller mods. It might be heavy but at least you can get a fair way through GoldenEye before it conks out.

    Besides the one controller/console glow in the dark combo the rest are just air brushed and different parts put together, like the two tone controllers are just the back of one controller and the front of another, unless his really impressive stuff is a few pages in then you can't count someone who does art as someone who mods things.

    I wanted that Zelda modded Wii soooo badly, but it was always unavailable :(

    Like you said how people are using the Wiimote for more stuff, a ton of people are doing tons of science stuff with the Kinect technology, including mechanics for robots. The things modders can do.

    The Zelda and Metroid Wiis and the portable SNES are definitely the coolest looking of all. I want one. And they should really make Half-Life on Wii, or all VALVe games. Ya......

    I want to know how they make the bodies for most of these systems. I would love to try my hand at modding, but I don't now how they make the bodies.
