Miceeno over on the forums has been busy at work on his latest Nintendo 64 portable dubbed the Nintendo Sixty 4or the Win. The unit is truly a marvel that redefines what the average person knows as elegance.
Human Portable Making Machine Gman keeps the production line going with his latest, a Nintendo Wii portable trimmed down small enough to fit, along with all the other necessary components, inside a Gameboy DMG case. How is such a thing possible? Is it just a Mirage? Perhaps just a PCI capture card inside an Atari Jaguar Shell? Has Gman obtained the schematics to the fabled Electromagnetic Shrinking Machine, last seen in the 1989 hit Honey I Shrunk the Kids? The Secrets Revealed, Exclusively on Bitbuilt.
[AirConditioner] (a.k.a Fluxedo) has built a gorgeous GameCube Portable, dubbed Dolphin Boy 2.0; with a fully-custom designed 3D printed case, external controller ports, and a WASP Fusion, you can store tons of games and play with your friends too!
What’s more, this portable boasts approximately 5 hours of battery life and circuitry for both charging the batteries and playing from wall power.
Generations of portablizers have looked at the Wii and thought it to be impossible to trim down. Today that all changes. Introducing the Definitive Wii Trimming Guide! With this guide in hand, it is now possible to slim the Wii’s motherboard down to nearly the size of a business card.
Advances are being quickly made with the Wii, and while console modders across the forums haven’t gotten the board down to it’s smallest yet, Gman has proven that bigger can definitely be better.
Modder Downing is back at it again. This time, he has a single game Nintendo 64 Portable themed to fit the game it’s wired to play; The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
The last project of Downing’s we saw was beautifully machined and even had CNC’d PCBs inside for the controller. This unit is no different and even takes things a step further. Downing 3D printed several ornamental pieces that were put onto the case such as the Ocarinas and heart-shaped control buttons for the screen. He even printed out a nice Hylian crest and had it backlit.
We have seen a multitude of Nintendo 64 portables over the years and while some of them have been exquisite, most of them don’t come even close to modder Downing’s latest unit.
3D printing is all the rage in today’s quickly advancing world. Modder Protobug is here today to show us just how smoothly new and old can go together.
