A surprisingly well done portable SNES

An excellent portable Super Nintendo hack by Ben Heck* forumling Life of Brian. It was built on commission and ended up proving so difficult that Brian decided not to use this particular case again, but the end result is wonderful: a portable retro console that isn’t just the guts of an SNES duct taped to the back of a piece of plywood.

    Very purty, but where’s the left and right shoulder buttons? On the back?

    SNES emulator on the DS? I tried that and it sucked.

    Haha, wow. Life of Brian is bringing the black one (see in link) to OVGE this weekend, and I was considering going as it is only 45 mins away. What a coincidence!

    I know it kind of ruins the joke, but his last name is actually Heckendorn.
