Mother lode of miniatures: Garage modder builds palm sized Nintendo Wii
A hardware modder, or modifier who goes by the Twitter handle Shank, claims to have crammed a fully functional Nintendo Wii gaming console into a tin of Altoids breath mint . Called the KillMii, the photos shared on Twitter show a portable device bound in a robust tin can with a rough cut-out for its two-inch screen. Shank had tweeted, “The KillMii is finished!

It’s the worst thing ever. Of course, Shank also professed that the screen was built from $10 backup screens that he had picked off Amazon.
