Once we run out of fossil fuels and our society devolves into a violent, resource-hoarding dystopia, the audiophiles of the world are going to have to get creative with their set-ups. This looks about right. More

This mod turns the PSP into a pretty cool looking little VU Meter (that’s volume meter, to you non-audiophiles). So dust of that PSP kiddo, it’s time to breathe life into that fledgling portable once again! The hack is the work of “foo foo” and it works as advertised. Spin up an audio track, and watch the little lights pump up in down with the levels. It’s no Korg DS-10, but then again few things are.
