Wired’s Charlie Sorrel found an old Sega Mega Drive lying around without any controllers or wires, so what did he decide to do with it? Turn it into an iPod dock.
Yes, it works: I just slid an iPod dock inside, secured it with gaffer tape and ran the USB cable out of a hole. Once the circuitry is out of the way, there is plenty of room in there for modding. I considered putting the guts of active speaker system in there to make a standalone iPod music center, but it’s just more junk taking up space. This Mega Drive will be going back to the street from where it can find a new home.
Head on over to Wired’s Gadget Lab for more photos of this fun iPod Dock.
