This particular Game Boy mod, also by Akira, sets out to be the Swiss Army knife of handhelds and succeeds. While not as visually outstanding as the GC Lynx, the Gameboy Reloaded can play a dizzying array of titles, including original Gameboy titles, dumped NES and SNES carts, and even some Nintendo DS games that dont require a second screen. It also sports a custom cartridge that flashes LEDs in time to game music, a pair of extra face buttons, built-in rechargeable batteries, the DS larger bottom screen, a massive extra speaker, and a custom case with accessories. R2-D2 Gaming Droid The gaming communitys interests regularly spill over into other forms of media; even Game Informer branches out and covers books, films, or board games once in a while. Occasionally, overlapping interests combine to make something special. Brian De Vitis R2-D2 Gaming Droid is just the kind of unique blend of video games and Star Wars worthy of being called special. Work on R2 began in 2007, as De Vitis, a mechanical engineer who now builds unmanned vehicles, began modifying an R2-D2 themed Pepsi cooler.

Akron Ohio News – Norton gives final State of the City address
This year, plans will continue to be developed for a Massillon Road construction project that would improve traffic flow with the addition of roundabouts at state Route 619 and Stein Road. The project would begin in 2017 or 2018, and when complete, Massillon Road will stand out as a signature corridor and gateway to the community, he said. Also in the engineering phase is a project being called The Box, Norton said. This project also would address traffic flow around Massillon Road and may include a roundabout in front of Giant Eagle. He said Graybill Road at Massillon Road will be widened this year to include a dedicated left and right turn lane. In addition, the city will resurface Moore, Wise and Sweitzer roads in 2015.
