Video games are pretty simple: there's a TV, a handheld controller and some buttons, right? Not at the Alt.Ctrl gallery at this year's Game Developer Conference. It's a handmade arcade filled with bizarre, custom game controllers that defy convention.
As soon as Nintendo released a demo for Smash Bros., it seemed like technical-minded people rushed to find ways to be able to play the game as it was meant to be played: with a controller.

Turning an old iMac into an aquarium is easy; the monitor is already hollow and lifeless, so there's really no risk of ruining it. Mike Schropp over at TotalGeekdom has taken the flora/fauna desktop mod a step further, actually modifying his own working PC to grow wheatgrass from atop its tower.
Before the advent of wireless controllers video game consoles were built like tanks to survive the countless times they'd be inevitably yanked to the ground when someone tripped over a cable. If only the wireless technology needed for this hack existed twenty years ago.
Siri has been something of a disappointment so far—more flash than substance—but this particular trick is a mighty impressive novelty. A neat new hack lets Siri play music on a Yamaha Disklavier player piano from music files in your library.
A hacker group has successfully ported Siri over to jailbroken iPhone 4's and 4th-gen iPod touches, marking the beginning of what could be a "whack a mole" response from Apple as it attempts to block the 4S's "killer feature."
