…The MacMod Mod of the Year is a first?

MacMod Challenge

The 2008 MacMod Mod of the Year has been announced, and a Pre-AGP Mac running Leopard has been declared the winner.

While not quite as visually impressive as the other entries, which included a TiN’ed iPhone, a Cube with liquid cooling, a Mac made of Legos, and even a Mac shoved inside of an Xbox 360, the judges felt that James Little’s (aka jimjamyahauk’s) milestone of being the first person to get Leopard to run (or even boot!) on any pre-AGP Mac was definitely worthy of the prize.

Be sure to check out the site for more details on each of the entries, including build photos and detailed specs and info.

…Donkey Kong likes Legos?

With a Mindstorms RCX kit and a lot of creative ingenuity, Dan Kressin managed to recreate an entire Donkey Kong level using only Legos.

In all, it took him about three months or 110-120 hours to complete, and the end result is a fully automatic and synchronized art piece that even plays the Donkey Kong theme song while the action happens.

Something like this:
