Beast of a box

Mobile application security vulnerability report

People have covered themselves and their possessions in animal skins since the dawn of time, but one gamer has taken things to another level by crafting an alligator-themed Xbox 360.

Alligator Xbox 360: swamp thing?

Gamer dfw monkie - somehow we’re guessing that’s not his real name - has published pictures of his creation detailing how he transformed the beige box into an alligator.

Monkie describes himself as a graphic artist from Dallas who's inspired by Salvador Dali and other surrealists.

Who you lookin' at?

The modder used a putty material to mould the alligator skin design over the console’s body and faceplate. He then covered the putty over with “paint and clear-coat” to give the ‘skin’ that “glossy wet look”.

The console’s power switch, around which the infamous Red Ring of Death is known to appear, has even been covered over with a fake alligator’s eye.

Hopefully game and film discs won’t be eaten by razor sharp teeth when you open the tray though…
