Ahh The Great Mac Mod Challenge 2006 - 08/31/06 07:44 PM

As I write this its a little after 10:40 EST and less than an hour and a half left to turn in your challenge Mod. I wonder how many of you are sweating the final details and turning that last screw. All the while snapping pictures and writing a guide at the same time. I for one can't waite to see the mods this year. Its not so much about who wins, as the wide range of great Mods that will be displayed.

Good Luck to everyone who is compeeting. :compute:

i gave up on my mod this year.. got a little too techincal( i guess that's what happens when you start on august 7th.) but rest assured i WILL have it entered next year, and i WILL keep it top secret till then. >:D  I also have about 2 other ideas i will be working on completing by next year.

i too am curious to see what was entered. and what caliber of mods we have this year.

Im stoked to see all of the great mods!  And once they are posted, I can actually show mine, lol.  I wanted to post three mods and I did finish them all, but ran out of time with the write ups.  Oh well.  Ill post em after the challenge.

geeze. it took me like forever to post my mod.

I thought it would be quick and easy but it was long and tedious.

finally got it in long after the first deadline and a few hours before the second deadline.


I can't wait to see all the mods!

Nice done, but I think a lot of work in Photoshop for some composed photo's like in the left lower corner.

Nice preview of the mac contest, a mac-mini on wheels ... who was that ? Radio controlled ?  smile

Yes, I have a very detailed sight ...

if you don't... i will...

dreamin and drawing already.  gonna be tough to top the B&O mp3 box.  that's the coolest damn thing i've ever seen.

Re: Ahh The Great Mac Mod Challenge 2006 - 09/06/06 07:58 AM

i would have to agree. the B&O is a good clean mod. very impressive

My question is: were there any mods submitted by any companies...? i tried to get some of the local mac stores in my area to try and join, but no dice.

Re: Ahh The Great Mac Mod Challenge 2006 - 09/06/06 08:52 AM

No businesses participated.  I'll get you guys to help me get the word out for next year tho.  Businesses need a LONG time to prepare and I didn't factor that in.  This year was the first year we were going to allow businesses to participate (WOW FREE ADVERTISING RIGHT?!) but i didn't let them know till August 1st so I dropped the ball there.

Hopefully I can think of something that can be my thesis project.  That would be sweet to get the school to pay the expenses on it.  I'm in my 3rd year now, so I'd probably have to wait two years.  What are some good things for an electrical engineer to do?

MacBook guts into a Clamshell iBook? Not much electrical engineering involved in that one though. If you could mod a G5 iMac to run from a PowerBook or MacBook Pro PSU brick, you could have the worlds only PowerBook G5!

haha, awesome plan.  I should probably use a typewriter for the keyboard.
