I could but I do not have any other kind of case to put it in. This was a quick throw together.
I still have to add buttons.

Get a radio shack project box. I took one and made the mini nes, with every built in nes game (EVER)!

I could have done that but then it would have cost me money. I did this and it was free because I traded for the Yobo and I already had the game case. Vola Free Case.

I got hogans alley for nes today with the famicom cartridge adapter inside, so I took a pirate cart from my power joy and put it inside the nes cart with the adapter, so now it looks like an official NES cartridge but it has a whole bunch of games on it including panda-mar. (Mario but with the sprites changed to panda things)

Haven't gotten a chance to test it yet because I removed the NES portion from my retro duo and I don't have an NES. I'm going to print out a sticker for it sometime to replace the hogans alley sticker.

my power joy cart doesn't have that panda mario game. there must have been different versions of carts made.
rest in peace, Ronnie James Dio! \m/

Ok, so I spent all day on the forums instead of doing something useful, but I got motivated tonight! Started working on this seriously at about 5, and finished at 12:45. I give you, a frontlight CGB!

Once again, same old, looks better in person, blah blah blah. Obvious LED leakage is Obvious. Of course, I was hoping this would get me one of those newfangled titles, but it's not really anything new or special.

Youtube video, starring a very, very tired me. I mumbled out a few words at the end :lol:

And, jlee, wonder how you knew that *wink*

Copied straight from modretro. Sony, awesome job on the backlights! You crank them out like it's nothing, but I ruined my DMG attempting to do this. Commendable job! (that is the right word, isn't it?)

Nice work, Of course you're lucky that your "fun little toy" is as good as it is, my computers that I mess around with are a Pentium 70 and two Pentium 110s. For a short time, I was "fixing" a 12 inch G4 from school, installed xbuntu on it, now the teacher is scared of it. You should LED backlight mod it, if it's not LED already.

Also, with the caseless yobo, maybe put it in a drink can/bottle, for something a bit different. . .

you need some better toys. i find most of my crap on the side of the road. the ibook i got on craigslist for $40.

as for xubuntu on the g4, i would be scared as well. linux on powerpc devices is TERRIBLE. im actually surprised you got it to work.

LED backlight the ibook? naw. the backlight is perfect. needs a battery before i go spending money on it.

I made some improvements to my duel disk. I like it better now.

Here is what it originally looked like(image stolen shamelessly from walmart):

And then I made it into this:
