    Metroid Wii Mod! SHAWEEET!!!

    http://hackawii.com/metroid-wii-case-mod/

    This Wii case mod is an amazing work of art. It was sold on Ebay so it has a new home now.

    From the artist; "I used an entirely NEW process for painting this time around with a new professional grade Iwata airbrush . Each color was painstakingly hand-mixed and color matched to achieve Samus’s signature metallic Varia suit colors of golden orange for the base and intense red for the Wii itself. Each coat was sanded before recoating and then finished off in countless coats of super durable clear coat that left a high gloss wet-look finish! The Wii Remote and Nunchuk were painted using the new process in a deep plasma canon green with the same high gloss finish. The Buttons are custom-made after-market gloss black replacements that are TOP quality and play tested! The result is truly something special and I am excited to be able to offer it.

    This has the most elaborate electrical mods of any I have done so far. Specific yellow-green LEDs were installed in the faceplate and base to closely match the color and look of her illuminated visor and shoulder lights. Each LED was sanded, shaped and placed to carefully maintain a dramatic yet subtle look. The Metroid logo is backlit by an array of six ice white LEDs embedded in a sanded acrylic disk. This disperses the light evenly to give the entire logo a halo of emanating white light.. The Wii Remote was modified with a custom internal controller board and a plasma orange LED. This controller board slowly fades the LED in and out much like the lighted effects on her canon. Finally, the four player indicator lights at the bottom of the Wii Remote were also changed from blue to green. In total 15 LED’s were used and, as always, since these are “always-on” LED’s the voltage was calibrated so as not to be either overbearing or too dim.”

    You'd thing that thing feasted on Electricity, but I guess all you're really doing is adding some lights. That and painting it, but unless the paint or clear-coat have electrolights in them...
    GAME OVER
