Build Your Own Portable 8-Bit Nintendo Entertainment System

Portable NESSure, the Nintendo DS is great. But let’s face it, few things beat the satisfaction of sliding one of those big old cartridges into place. Using the “NES on a Chip,” (which can be found inside many grey-market Famicim clones) Ben Heck has put together a truly amazing portable NES. The finished product is only slightly larger than the cartridge itself, which slides neatly into the back side. There’s even a slide-out battery pack and what looks to be about a 5″ screen. Though not a complete “project plan,” Ben does detail his build process step-by-step with lots of photos. If you don’t want to try and replicate his design, Ben will even build one for you…for a price, of course. (via Kotaku)
