Kevin Hortan's Puma 2600

Yeah, although his way of making a portable Atari 2600 is a lot different, I like the fact that (by using his method) you have a lot more controll over the size & shape of the Atari board. I'd go as far to say that by using this method you could create a portable atari only a little bit larger that ...

I'm thinking of using an oven, but since I want to set up a perminent vacuume form setup, I'll add heating elements later. But for now, at least, I'll probably just use an oven.
Some of the other uses I'm going to use is for other custom cases and also costumes.

hmm... well I guess since the 12V line on the n64 actually only requires around 9.7V, I'd use 8 rechargable AA batteries. Although if you didn't mind spending more money I'd go with different batteries. Also, you can use a voltage regulator to knock the 12V down to 3V, although that isn't very conse...

I checked all the craft stores in my area and the closest I could get to clay was.... umm... playdough... Edit: Unless, that is, you include crayola modelling clay. They have plenty of that in the craft stores in my area, the only problem is that it would cost around $25 for enough clay to make one ...

Yeah, the problem I have is that there are no stores in my area that carry clay. I might be able to buy some from my school's art teacher though, but if that doesn't work, I'm going to have to make it out of something else, maybe foam and paper mache....

Yeah, its nice that it only needs around 10V to run instead of 12V. Even though its a small difference, when buying batteries it can make quite a large price difference.

Power supply

I was checking out the n64 power supply today, and I noticed that the 12V line is actually around 11V, and when there is a load present, it runs at around 9.7V. What I find strange about this is that the gamecube screen seems to require 12V, but runs fine off of the n64 12V line (which runs at aroun...

hmm.. I don't know where this should go, but since your talking about batteries, I'll put it here. A person emailed me recently commenting on my work with a ps2p, and suggested that I might want to use Lithium polymer batteries. I've checked them out, and they are a little more expensive than the ba...

well, I'm almost done rewiring the controller. I have to go to radio shack later today to pick up 4 more switches for the controller. So far I have everything wired except for the L, R, X, and Y buttons. I'm wiring directly to the chip, so I'm only going to keep around .25x1 inch of the original con...

Completed!! I built a temperary case last nite out of the bottom of the snes and a small piece of wood. It works great except for the large size of the case. I'm opening it back up to replace the snes controller buttons with tactile switches that I bought so I have better controlls. Also, I'm going ...

no, it might be switched to input from the phono jack, flip the switch to set it to the other input

There should be a switch on the left or right side, I can't remember. It switches inputs from the nintendo jack to the phono jack. switch that and it should work.

well, I got tired of trying to fix my ps2 mb, so I bought another ps2 off of ebay. I got it for around $53 after shipping. All that's wrong with it is the cd tray and the case is in bad condition. Luckily in my portable I won't be using either of those, so it doesn't really effect me. Now all that I...
