Well after spending several months working, redesigning things, and generally procrastinating, I've finally (mostly) finished my third and quite likely final portable N64. I was aiming for a happy medium between my previous two versions, and I think what I came up with is significantly better than either of the others. Vacuum forming the case made a pretty big difference too
. Anyways, on to the pictures...
Front view of the shiny blue case. Eventually the buttons will get covered/painted, but I ran out of time before I had to start packing for school.
More of the front. There's a sheet of acrylic over the screen to protect it from scratches, pressure, finger prints, etc...
The back with the battery compartment (still the typical 7.2V RC pack). The two halves of the case are held together by two screws in the back, as well as an edge on the inside (which also aligns everything).
Bottom view. Eventually there will be a break-out connector (DB9) for the controller ports, and a switch (on the right) to turn off the internal controller.
And, of course, playing OoT
. The screen is modded with 6 LEDs (and the luminance clamp jumped until I have time to add a pot).
Overall dimensions are 8.25 x 5.75 x 2.75 inches (not including how far the cart sticks out, which isn't much as you can see in the first picture).
