NES laptop

Post by limpport » Mon Apr 13, 2009 9:12 pm

I used the forums search for "nes laptop", but didn't find anyone working on an actual laptop.

So I'm hoping I've come up with an original idea. I want to use an NES Advantage as the bottom part, and an 8" screen as the top. I know somebody is thinking "but wait, the controller stik will break the screen wen u shut it lol". I'm planning on cutting it off, drilling a hole in the bottom and top piece, and using a screw and female threaded piece so it can screw back together.

I will keep the slow and turbo buttons, but I will get rid of the player 1/player 2 switch between, and just have a player 2 port. I have a Yobo NOAC and the Advantage in the mail to me already.

I've been messing around with Adobe Illustrator, but I'll post those when I get all of the mock-ups done.

Oh, and help me fund this by buying my Genesis and games. There's a link in my sig. :wink:

Umm. somebody already had the exact same idea as you. They were going to make a laptop using nes advantage and a 7 inch screen. The guy was going to use an actual nes though.

I was thinking around the lines of an SP, with the screen flipping up. Though a NES cabinet sounds good.....

Oh yeah, just wondering... I'm not shunned forever for not finishing a project, right? :( I know it was my first, and I abandoned it, my post count is sub-100, and I still don't have a sig...
