    Hello Folks,

    I recently joined this forum over from Bitfixgaming, and figured id share my first 2 portables here. Note that i made these a few years back, and im posting them purely to share :)
    And perhaps for future reference to see where i came from and where it all started.

    The first one surely wasn't a beauty(read abomanation :P), but atleast it was functional.
    As i knew nothing about electronics when i started this hobby, at the time i felt quite proud on actually finishing a working portable which wasn't TO big.

    The 2nd had atleast better casework, became smaller, had extra functions like a expansion pak (bended) and things like a battery indicator.
    To most of you features like this seem like childsplay, but the thing i love about this hobby is the progress you can make, and learning from your mistakes. and always try to make it better and better !

    dimensions :
    Length : 13 CM 5.1"
    Width : 23 CM 9.1"
    Height : 6.5 CM 2.5"
    Weight : 900 Gram 31 oz

    specs :
    PS One Screen and speakers unmodded
    W78 3.3V regulator
    2x BP-915 2200Mah
    Build-in Charger
    Makopad 64 Controller

    Let me present you the 64 Lunch (read; sixty For Lunch)Features :

    Case : 7" x 4.5" x 2.5" lunchbox
    2x 3 watt speakers
    Expansion pack
    3.5 inch screen with screen controles.
    PS1 joystick on a Superpad 64
    4400mah Li-ion Battery pack


    I am posting this here to show a bit what i have done in the past, and i like to share older projects, or look back at them for where it all began for me.

    Now for the future, i do own a 3d printer and am practicing with that.
    As the biggest problem for me (as you can tell :P) is case work.

    I have done alot of projects by now with my printer, and designing is starting to feel natural.
    Soon i will either start a Wii Portable or perhaps yet another N64 who knows.

    For now im moving to a new appartment, but i thought sharing these could be fun and perhaps after 2 years, someone can still point something out that i missed out on :)
