Re: GC Portable : Worklogs

You're off to a good start with a nice case design. Looks like it will be pretty comfortable to hold with the controls where they are. What total thickness are you shooting for?

Re: techknott's "HANDHELD" PS2

Holy hell! That is some fantastic case work! The design flourishes like the outline around the controls and the gratuitous venting on the back are perfect! The Sony logo on front - did you have that cut out as well or did you lift it from something? I know you're more interested in the "finished" pi...

Re: boNES: Portable NES

This portable suffers the unfortunate consequences of hot glue used to mount the screen... and yet it turns out the screen is dead. Maybe if I get my hands on a hot knife or something I can resurrect this one.

It just needs a new Flashback 2. I think my current one is fried. Wonky, at least.

Re: N64 Portable in progress.

Before you paint, please spend some more time on sanding and using spot filler! The result will be so worth it. Try to get the transition from controller plastic to case plastic as smooth as possible.

Other than that, pretty sweet case design!

Re: Red/White and Metal/Wood CNC SNESp's

I'm not quite certain what the problem may be. There are other places nearby where you can bridge the connection to set the SNES into an always "on" position. Here's an underside shot of my SNES. You could just bridge the spot where those traces go through the board to the other side nearby the rese...

Are you sure you're not hearing "ghost to ghost"?

The only proper way to read forums of any kind :D In a basement or your bedroom, on dial-up. And with your parents or sibling yelling at you to get off the computer so they can use the phone.

Re: I think there should be a videogame projector.

A portable with a pico projector built in would be pretty sweet. I haven't seen a pico projector for anything less than a couple hundred bucks, though.

Re: Laser Trip Wire

Wow that launchpad board is pretty cheap. I have a friend with a photography business and he just mentioned last night he'd like to play around with some laser triggered photos.

Cool build!

Re: Red/White and Metal/Wood CNC SNESp's

Reverse order answers! 3) I think it's 30 gauge wire. Just some stuff I picked up from RadioShack, although some random stores don't carry it and a couple of times I've been looked at like I'm some sort of fool who's speaking crazy talk when I've asked for it. I used to work for RadioShack. It's on ...
