Best of EAMB – Jawa GameCrawler by jimmycanuck

Not too long ago, in a galaxy not too far away (the UK to be precise), someone took a classic Millenium Falcon toy and hacked an XBox into it. The results were astounding. I decided to take a looksee into what DarkOps (the modders behind this wonder) were up to now. I’m even more awestruck than before.

Locked within this 1977 Jawa Sandcrawler is a Gamecube, an N64, and an Atari 2600. They call it the Jawa Gamecrawler. I call it frickin’ sweet. Everything from controller ports to cartirdge slots are hidden within the design of the crawler. More details and pictures are available here, as well as elsewhere on their website.

hey have one other project that I thought was kinda cute, too. They’ve hacked a Dreamcast into a Fisher Price Millenium Falcon which can be seen here. For more on what they’re up to, visit DarkOps website.

(Back in the summer of 2005 I had my first moderately successful venture in the world of blogging, Elvis Ate My Blog. The reasons for it’s demise have become unclear through the fog of history, but for whatever reason I abadoned it like a red-headed stepchild. From time to time I’ll be posting some of the best posts that originally appeared on EAMB. This is one of those times.)
