Xbox 360 Camaro Casemod Has More Than Meets the Eye
We here at GeekTech cover our fair share of casemods, and this recent Xbox 360 effort is one that definitely caught our eye. Descriptively dubbed the 'Transformer Xbox 360', this impressive modification takes Microsoft's home console and crams it all within the body of a remote-controlled Camaro.
This casemod comes to us by way of its creator, Mark Bongo of Major League Mods, and it's the latest in a long line of casemod work from the outfit. In the past, Major League Mods has put out a case modeled on R2-D2 and, in keeping with the Star Wars theme, a Millenium Falcon 360 machine.
This Transformers-inspired console sees a 250GB slim Xbox 360 placed inside the shell of a remote-controlled Bumblebee Camaro. But despite the unusual shape, the modified 360 is still fully-functional.
You turn on this custom machine by pressing the gas cap. Once you switch it on, you will find the disc tray is concealed within the front grill of the RC car--to open it you just have to hit the Chevy logo. The rear window of the Camaro is fitted with an 8-inch LCD screen, and below that, underneath the rear bumper, is access to the HDMI and USB ports. Oh, and yes, it moves:
Mark, even went to the effort of creating custom Bumblebee Xbox 360 controllers. Pretty neat huh?
Thanks for sharing, Mark!
