As humans of the 21st century we are used to several devices on our day-to-day.
Twenty years ago people were still using plain old ink and paper. However, with evolution comes change.
Some of the devices we have in use today include:
- Computers (laptops, desktops, mainframes, etc.)
- Ebook Readers
- Video Games (portable ones, non-portables, online, etc.)
- …and the list goes on
All of these devices are derived from sort of machinery, and each machinery has their potential limit.
What intrigues me, and a whole bunch of other people, is who/what limits this potential?
For business it makes more sense to have all devices separate thus increasing their sales. But for us however, if what we really want is to test these devices we have to get dirty. This text is a basic introduction into modding.
Modding: Modifying a device to test its potential and do what is wasn’t built to do.
In the upcoming weeks we will be checking out modding devices we use day-to-day to either make it run faster, or if its a video game, perhaps make it run games from a different platform, etc. Basically modify the machine to make it better, faster, more apadtive, intuitive and efficient.
