Travis Breen sent in his latest hack where he shrunk a Nintendo 64 into a Handheld Console. To see the build pictures go to 3:00 point in the video. As you can see by the pictures getting it all to fit wasn’t an easy task. The case also looks to be a labour of love, t turned out nice enough to be at home on a store shelf.

“Uses a full size N64 board with the cartridge slot relocated. 2 lithium ion batteries give you about 2-3 hours of play time, depending on the game played/brightness level. 7 inch widescreen, stereo speakers, original N64 controller buttons, and expansion pack. The case was made from a sheet of ABS plastic. Used bondo to get the smooth shape; the white paint is an automotive paint from Toyota(super white 040). Can be played from the internal batteries, or from wall power.”
