Real Carbon Fiber Xbox 360 Case and Controller (For Sale)

I've had an obsession with Carbon Fiber for a long time... have just loved everything about it, from it's unique and gorgeous appearance, to it's amazing material properties, helping enable better performance in cars, and now also in aviation.  Take a look at a fun mod we've done with it!

Well, I finally got to handle some, and my imagination has gone wild, and being that I'm a huge fan of computer and console modding... the match was one made in heaven, and I commenced.

 

Full worklogs of the projects can be found at the Carbon Fiber Xbox 360 Worklog and the Carbon Fiber Xbox 360 Controller Worklog threads on the forums!  We are considering creating video tutorials and assembling ready-to-go kits for doing these mods to your own Xbox 360/PS3/Computer, or whatever else you want to add that Unique Carbon Fiber look to! We are gauging this endeavor based upon if there is enough interest, so if you'd like to see something like that, let us know and we will try to make it happen!

Anyways, moving on!  Since the worklog threads in the forums have all the nitty gritty details on how these were done, we will keep this article about displaying the work, and what better way than to provide you with a picture montage!

We will start with the Xbox 360 Controller!

I apologize for the fingerprints which make the edges look a bit blurry ;)  (Can't help but touch it!)

(Note on this picture of the bottom: We normally also carbon fiber the battery box as well, as you can see on the controller on the next page!)

There have been several recommendations to finish these off with all-black furniture (bottom, dpads, and joysticks), and we plan to try one of these soon!

The Xbox 360 Shell is showcased on the next page!

 


 

Now, lets move onto the Xbox 360 Shell, which features our latest completed controller!  We "played" with this one and did some experimenting, and, honestly, lead it to not come out as perfect as we'd have liked, but, all in all, we are still very pleased with the end result!  We expect the next one to be far better from the lessons we learned with this one!  We would also like to do an Xbox 360 Slim Xbox in Carbon fiber, especially as its default look would be well complimented with the look of carbon fiber!

There are tons more pictures located in their respective threads in This Forum!  Check them out!

 

And for those wondering if they could get one of their own, the answer would be YES!  Currently we are doing them on a per request basis, so if you are interested send an email to info [at] tech-kings.net or send a PM in the forums and we can discuss details of having your one-of-a-kind Xbox 360 brought to life!  We are making preparations to possibly produce larger numbers of both controllers and cases, and will be sure to let everyone know when this becomes a possibility!  We do this as a hobby, and not to make illicit piles of money, so we feel that we charge a very reasonable amount!  So if you are interested, let us know about it, and we can probably work something out!  Feel free to email or post in the forums and let us know what you think about these, and if you have any questions, comments, or recommendations!

 

Thanks for looking, and hope you enjoyed it!  We will continue to update this article When we finish our next case and/or make changes to our processes!

I am very interested in the work you guys do and I would love to see the quality first hand. Can you guys produce shells or bodies of anything? Also how much would you charge for an xbox controller casing?
