GeniMini my portable Genesis - Youtube added

Post by hailrazer » Sat Sep 12, 2009 3:33 pm

Here's my latest portable.

*EDIT* Youtube video done : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPRtAd3SCHc" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I had 3 days this week so I decided to use whatever spare parts I had lying around and create a Portable Genesis.

Parts:
Case : Polycase AG85
Screen : Zenith Psone screen / 4 LED mod.
System : Genesis 3
Batteries : 2 - 3.7v Camcorder batteries
Buttons: Radio Shack Momentary Push Buttons, Small d-pad with tac switches underneath, extra long tact switches for brightness/volume.

Well here it is :

It took about 25 hours to do if I had to guess.

I'm pretty happy with it. The only thing that I don't like is the Led mod, no matter how many I use or what type I still prefer the original backlight.

Well there you go. Hope you guys like it.

First post on both forums! :P

I like it. It looks really professional for being built in 25 hours, especially the dpad hole.
Cheers,

I like it. How comfortable are the A, B, and C buttons arranged like that?

So far in all the games I've tried I actually like it better than having them horizontal/diagonal.

I would've used a 6 button controller, but that's just me. Good job on your portable though.

Nice job. What kind of battery life does it get/do you expect? How much did you cut off of the Genesis board? I didn't realize it could be made so small.

I can't really tell, is that a Genesis 3? Anyway, very nice work. You should submit it to the showcase. :)

Are you going to make a video of this genesis portable like you did with your lazer doodle portables?
