Post by techknott » Sat Aug 14, 2010 7:46 am

Still needs a bit of a clean and sand in places. But here is my latest iteration.

4500mah batts @ 7.4v
PSone lcd with original backlight
Original DC control pad and triggers
2 external player ports and multi-av out for playing on big screen
Built in and removable VMU's
SD card slot on bottom wired to DC serial port
CNC cut acrylic case and mdf walls

I love the sliding disk cover! I can't believe nobody has done that yet. It's a simple and beautiful idea.

And good call with the SD slot!

Very clean and very smooth. Congrats, this may be your best yet. It looks like Sega made it.
I have nothing clever to say here. Sorry.

What is the SD card for? Homebrew?
Also how do you make those sidewalls?

Wonder the same thing myself. Might be for ISO loading, but don't think that is possible. Either way, this is an amazing mod.

Assuming this was for the fun of it and not a commission right? I don't remember if you sell your projects (like WVI for PS3). Not that I could afford to buy it anyway >.<

I would love to buy this from you! What's the price if you are selling it?
