The Fami-Card turns an NES cart into an NES

Console modder la grenouille Kotomi has managed to cram an entire NES inside a disemboweled Super Mario Bros. cart. Christened the Fami-Card, Kotomi's hack uses one of those cheap Chinese NES-on-a-Chip knockoffs to run the games, and even finds space to cram in a cartridge slot, video and audio out and two joystick ports. This is fantastic, but someone needs to take Kotomi's work to the next level, and install a screen, speakers and a d-pad into the back of an old cartridge (preferably Blaster Master) transforming it into a standalone portable version of itself.

    Is that a knock on Blaster Master?
    If it is, then prepare to duel.

    This made my nipples hard.

    That integrated screen, speakers and controls seems to me to be a project meant for Ben Heckendorn.

    I think this is really cool. I want one, if only for the sheer portability. Plus it looks awesome.
