My first Wii Portable of my design. Like the ashida, it is designed around 4layer tech boards. I'm calling it the Wiiclipse because I want it to be all black, like an eclipse (and puns are fun). My goal for this design was to make something minimal yet classy. I even made my own logo:

I've been working on this for the past ~3 months. I spent so much time writing about it on my blog that I didn't have energy to fully document it here, so here are some sexy images of what I have so far. I have some juicy cad, test photos of it, and even a crude animation. If you guys have any questions just let me know.

It isn't done yet, there is still a lot to go like adding audio, using vga video, and more, but I can still show it off a bit right now.

Maybe I should embrace the all blacked out aesthetic and make it so the video output is all black too :rothink:

Damn the demo of it running is pretty good. How did you make it look so good in the demo?

Nice demo. This reminds me a bit of ye olde laser cut SL-57 portables. I like
