Nintendo 64 handheld console

Posted on Friday, December 14th, 2012 in DIY by DP

Want to play your Nintendo 64 games on the go? Travis took a N64 board, relocated the cartridge slot, and slapped on a 7” TFT & a battery. All of this is enclosed in a ABS plastic case with the original joypad buttons added for the interface.  The build photos are  3 minutes into the video.

Uses a full size N64 board with the cartridge slot relocated. 2 lithium ion batteries give you about 2-3 hours of play time, depending on the game played/brightness level. 7 inch widescreen, stereo speakers, original N64 controller buttons, and expansion pack. The case was made from a sheet of ABS plastic. Used bondo to get the smooth shape; the white paint is an automotive paint from Toyota(super white 040). Can be played from the internal batteries, or from wall power.
