XBOX ONE S converted into a Gaming/Theater PC

So I’ll admit, I have not shown much love to PC gamers out there! I am always modifying XBOX and PS4s and turning them into something else. Well.. This time I decided to mod something else into a XBOX. What ended up being born is a OEM XBOX One S looking Gaming/Home Theater PC. Making almost no modifications to the case itself we were able to get a Mini ITX Gaming PC crammed inside. From the back of the unit, you can see there is a few more ports than a standard XBOX One S. Using my laser cutter we made a perfect backplate to remain the factory look. It almost make it look like this could have been a XBOX One S prototype unit or something! I used the original power button to turn the PC on, but with space being a concern, we left out an optical drive. I mean, who uses these things anyways.. haha. So instead I added some Adafruit NeoPixel bars and an arduino to have the BluRay slot function as a power indicator. There is not much to say about this PC. Check out the pictures and parts list below and the video above!! Until next time…
