The "Super Genintari" (Atari 2600/NES/Genesis/SNES

Post by vomitsaw » Mon Apr 14, 2008 12:23 am

I wasn't really sure where I should post this, being that it could technically fall under several different sections of the forums, so it's going here. Ahem. Anyhow...

Sometime back in early 2002, I thought it'd be cool to mash together a bunch of my favorite classic gaming consoles into one box. Long story short, a little over SIX YEARS LATER I have this thing here called the "Super Genintari".

Image

It's a 4-in-1 Atari 2600/NES/Genesis/SNES combo system packed in a case hand-built with transparent bronze acrylic. It measures a whopping 14"x10"x5" and weighs... I have no idea. Heavier than a Gameboy and lighter than a 1986 Honda Accord.

My roommate has access to a laser cutter at school so I took advantage of that for the logo. Other that that, the entire thing is cut, shaped, sanded, bent, wired, glued, cleaned and polished entirely by hand.

Unfortunately, most of my progress shots were lost over the years due to the fact that they were taken with 5+ different cameras and moved from hard drive to hard drive until they were either misplaced or accidentally erased. Anyhow, I hope you fellas enjoy this.

Oh! And there's also a video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFGQnU4TaYU

I'll have to dig some of those up. I accidentally scattered them all over the place and deleted half of them the other night when trying to upload. :(

Thanks! I used a strip-heater. You can buy them at Tap Plastics. Having to assemble it yourself kinda sucks, but it's really no big deal. Lay the sheet over the strip where you want to make a bend, let it heat up until you see it starting to sag, then bend that sucka by hand.
