Want to shed some fat? Crustaceans (shrimp, lobster, crab, crayfish, prawn, and other shellfish) may seem an unlikely source to help you lose body fat.

Xbox 360 Laptop The Second

Behold my second and (unless someone gives me Miller Brewing company) last Xbox 360 Laptop!

Similar to the first model but redesigned in many ways. “Uses 60% Less Aluminum!”

For a full photo gallery and more info please see the article over on Engadget.com. The bonus with this project is that I’ve documented the construction in a fair amount of detail and will be doing a 3 part “How To” also on Engadget, as unsurprising as that may seem. It’ll include art files and diagrams, so you can take a crack at modding a 360 on your own!

Xbox 360 Laptop 2 – Article on Engadget.com

Enjoy the photos and imagine yourself playing 360 by the pool surrounded by supermodels, but don’t rush to send me emails offered to trade in 5 Game Gears for this thing as I do not plan to build any more of these on consignment. (I am selling Atari 2600 Rev 5.1′s though!) It just takes to darn long, and I don’t have enough limbs to build enough for the demand. Sometimes I wish I could fall prey to an experiment gone wrong and wake up with 4 extra, hopefully metallic, robotic arms, but that probably won’t happen anytime soon so I’m sorry… However if you are carrying out any dangerous experiments that might result in appendage appending let me know.

But fear not – I’ve got loads of other projects on my backburners so they’ll be plenty of new stuff to check out on benheck.com in the near future. As always, stay tuned!

    Hot on the heels of Ben Heck’s last mod, the PS360 hybrid joystick, he’s at it again. This time he’s cranked out another Xbox 360 laptop, which improves on the original one he did a few months back.

  5. fedrebel Says:

    Very nice!

    Since you’re not producing the thing, maybe you could distribute blueprints and ‘step by step manuals’ on how we can make our very own.

    …or you can just tease us with more things we can never hope to have

  6. ggg Says:

    This is very nice, it would be great to buy this in local store, but…

  7. Rooster Says:

    RE: fedrebel’s comment..

    Dude – The whole point is to see that it can be done, and admire it, and if you have the guts, DO IT YOURSELF. He’s not a store (well, you know what I mean!). You say, “more things we can never hope to have”, what’s stopping you. Get off your butt and learn how to do cool things. He’s given ya more than you need to start with here already. If you have a problem, and actually MAKE progress in doing something, I’ve little doubt he wouldn’t offer a suggestion/help if you show him what you’ve done so far.

    Wost case, if you plan to remain completely uncapable of learning new things, you could always find someone and pay them. Ben is incredibly talented, but once something has been done, any skilled person could ‘clone’ it, now that the ground work is done.

  8. Metallica Man X Says:

    That thing looks quite spiffy! If i had the dough, I’d try to build one myself! It’d be a sweet thing to take to my friends’ halo parties! Of course, i’d have to give it my own color scheme…all black…with metal flames and various band logos metallicly etched into the surface….oooh…*drools on keyboard*

  9. MentalSheep Says:

    Would it be possible to make the laptop 360 battery operated like a normal laptop. Also any chance of a tutorial as I’d love to make one meself :D

    Looks great, do you have any indication as to what type of budget is required to make one of these? I may be able to get a 360 for free from s friend, but the monitor, casing, keyboard, etc.?

    Yo, this thing should get some copyright protection over it otherwise someone will copy it and sell it to Microsoft or someone else and get rich. You’ll all see it in a year or so in the shops and the guy on the news and he will be minted and Ben will have lost out.

    It’s literally beautiful. I could “probably” clone it. It would take me forever though (probably til the “Xbox720″ is released). Any tutorials? Diagrams? Blueprints? I’d like to have one of these things made by the time Halo3 is released.

  36. Kitsune_Etoile89 Says:

    I’m not usually an Xbox fan, but I just got done watching G4 and saw the episode with your laptop on it and had to comment. I think that this is a fantastic idea. I am a PS2 fan, but if you took this idea to them and had them mass produce it I would SOOO buy one. This is beautiful and fun….you have a lot of skill and talent to create such masterpieces. Keep up the work, and I’ll put your website on my fav. list.

  38. Squazzil Says:

    I love the casing, and the ‘home made’ feeling of it, and in fact, all of Ben’s projects. For example, you can see the screws and that they are actually keeping the thing together and won’t brake!

    I’ve salivated over your many modded consoles and I’d like to commission you to make yet another Xbox 360 laptop.

    The site I work with consoleheroes.com (also known as x3h.com) would like to give one away as a prize. Please let me know what it would take to get the ball rolling.

    We are very much interested.

    ^ If anything, you should sell that for around $3,000, just like the Apple MacBook Pro.
    ^ And also, where are you selling those two laptops you made?
    ^ And finally, you should give this idea to Microsoft, and then, you could make some serious $$$. Or maybe, they’ll be dicks and take the idea without paying you…

  64. DP Says:

    By the way, does Microsoft even know that you modded a system by them?
    I wonder if anyone from Microsoft has been on this page.
    How did you make the console into a laptop? I know a kid who’s a little older than me. He made his own
    good-performanced PC in a couple days. I saw the computer and I was like “Holy Crap! How could you make a computer in a couple days??” Technically, he made the hardrive. Idk about the Monitor.
