The Second Life of an Old Nintendo

Published by at 8:00 am under Images,Video Games

I know that I’ve been longing for the days of old systems lately.   What can I say?  I have nostalgia for my golden years of mastering the original NES and even some Atari games.   But it’s not like I don’t miss things like Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo.   I’ll even go as far as Nintendo 64.

Speaking of which.   Someone decided to bring Nintendo 64 into the new age of video games.    He managed to transform this entire system into a workable portable Nintendo 64.

Check out the assembly pictures after the jump….

Images came from Acidcow but I’m not sure where the originals are from

    I don’t know what to say, other than I wish I could do this to my own N64. This is pretty dang amazing.

    If anyone wants a step by step guide on how to do this the link is

    It’s not the exact same guy who made the photos above (I found his but it’s all in Spanish), but it’s the same basic principle just with a less clean looking case.

    Its just crazy thinking that all I needed was a LCD screen back in ’97′ to do something like this in order to be the “coolest kid in town”…..oh well I still have fond memories of playing.

    I wonder what was done for battery power as well as how long it will last

    Check out Ben Heck’s projects. He’s basically done this to every console in existence, plus some other neat projects

    The only problem…multiplayer.

    Looks like an old-school Wii-U controller.

    Oh my god… those ingenious bastards. They knew all along. THEY KNEW ALL ALONG.

    Nice! I want one!

    Demonic, you are assuming the person who would make an N64 handheld has friends.

    Or that he wants to play with others in general… this might be a bit of a stretch.
