[Marcus Gritsch] wanted to do his retro gaming using retro hardware… or at least using some retro hardware. Although he was playing his Commodore 64 games in an emulator, he figured that using an original controller would boost the nostalgia quite a bit.

[Nav] wanted to change his keyboard mapping for one particular keyboard, rather than on each operating system. He used an AT90USBKey as a replacement PCB by soldering to all of the contacts on the key matrix.

[Jamie] built his own USB connected arcade controller. We’ve been seeing a lot of these lately, and they usually involve soldering buttons to a keyboard PCB.

[Taylor] popped a new graphics card into his computer, but before he could settle in for a round of gaming, his card started to overheat. He eventually tracked the problem down to an undersized power supply, but the prospect of cooking his new GPU to death made him think twice about how he was monitoring his systems health.

Although many have made some sort of music with improvised electronics, few sound as cool as this Imperial March from Star Wars played by two floppy drives.

As a new recruit to the 68k Macintosh Liberation Army, [dougg3] is really showing off his hardware hacking ability. He came up with a replacement ROM SIMM for his Mac IIci and made it play the Mario theme on boot instead of the normal chimes.

For those of you that have a wireless keyboard laying around, you might be tempted to turn it into something else, like a wireless MAME controller.

I have done quite a bit of CNC work with MDF but I didn’t know it could be carved with normal wood working tools this nicely. Andrew Espie-Whitburn from Espie Whitburn Design created this Wood Carved Computer Case over a period of 20 days and it looks great!.

Interacting with your project can be as simple as hooking up an IO pin to a button but if you need greater capability it might be time for a keyboard.
