That was the goal all along, to be flippin gorgeous I mean

Well... Bit techerz seen to like cable modding a lot, thats for sure.


Heres an update:


First off, I made the xbox reciever a bit shorter


Then I started on those magnets for the controllers. Found an amazing product on ebay, conductive glue!! No soldering needed... Just perfect! ... or it wouldve been, if it actually worked Totally useless cr*p!!


So I soldered instead. Soldering magnets is a lot of fun... The iron strikes for the magnets in an instand and suddenly youve got tin everywhere. Never do this, its pure pain!


Atfer soldering I secured the joints with some epox.


16 magnets on an old PSU cover...


Heres a quickshot of the foot and base console. Almost done now I hope. Cant wait to test this gaming beast!

Laterz!!

Heh, I found out the hard way that the cap on ferrofluid will keep it in the bottle, until you bring it near a magnet. Then it just gets pulled right out through the seals! That crap will stain anything.

This is just pure awesome and since I have a projector fetish, this can't go bad. That LED projector is so tiny I want one just to cuddle with.

I never had thought that fiber optics could be used for receiving IR. Very clever.

Keep them wood chops flying.

To make sure the magnets would transmit the signals proper, I came up with this:


Glued the first magnets into the main pad with epoxy under pressure.


Then I simply just put some epoxy on the opposite magnets and let them do their own thing, collide. Then I placed the joystick pad(with predrilled holes ofcourse) on top of them and let it dry during night.


Next morning. Perfect transmission!!


Did the same thing with the trackball pad.


The day after that I started to put some guts in there.

God damnit Quizz, did your momma not tell you not to make too awesome looking mods?

In all seriousness, this has the looks and function of the best mods out there (imho of course), but your creativity is through the roof.

Massive props, I wish i could do case modding beyond putting a PC together as well after seeing what you do.

Looking awsome as always.
I really like this idea with the magnets and I really hope that it works out as planned. My only consern is that the wood might warp slightly over time and that this toleranse might cause a bad connection. If that would happen, maybe something softer than epoxy could be used. Like some kind of silicon or rubber addhesive that will still allow the magents to compress or strech slightly after its cured. But hopefully you wont need it.

Keep it up

Thanks friend. Yeah, Ive pictured the wood destroying the transmission. As you say, tolerance is low and theres not much movement needed. Im just hoping for the best here If Im lucky, itll be fine. Ive thought about using a softer or a more stretchy adhesive too, but the magnets are too strong I think, and will eventually come off. Ive thought about using springs in some way maybe, but same issue there, the magnets are too strong.

Just incase you will need to try with something softer sometime. I would give this a try, or something similar. That stuff sticks to about anything once dried and is literaly impossible to get away once cured, sticks like crazy to metall, atleast from my experience. And it might just give it that extra flex. But lets just hope it isn't needed at all.
