Xbox 360 WVI (handheld) - Youtube Video Added

Yes I used an original xbox game as its all i had at the time. Shoot me. In fact I completely forgot i made this vid, so enjoy.


Hello everyone, first time poster, long time reader. Very nice polite forum so I just had to register.

Anyway thought id share with you my project which I completed a couple of days ago. Im rather pleased with it but could have probably done better. Still needs a bit of a clean in places but works like a charm.

My story:
I wanted to make a portable but didn't really fancy making something i could emulate on the psp. Im a bit of a next gen freak so X360 or PS3 came to mind. Bearing in mind that I never get to play on mine because the missus is the boss of the TV in our house, so, I came up with this.

Runs on 7.5v(2x2600mAh) and the whole thing sucks about 500mA in total. Full recharge circuit built in so you can charge while you play and has an indicator led for charging(red) and full charge(green).

It has 4xLED modded backlight, is 1" thick and is really solid and comfy.

Made entirely from brushed aluminium.

Wireless Visual Interface

Comments and critisisms are most welcome.

500mAh? The 360 MUST suck more power than that...

It looks great though, any heat problems?

I call shenanigan, if a 360 could be powered by a battery Ben would not have made his wall powered.

Your misunderstanding guys. Its a Wireless interface. It DOESNT contain the actual X360 hardware. It uses an RF receiver to pick up AV signals.

Where do the discs go? And how bad are those LEDs near the top of the screen when you're playing?

The LED's cannot be seen on the screen at all.

Good job on it. Looks very clean.

For everyone who can't read: The subject says WVI which means Wireless Video Interface. This means he can play his 360 anywhere in the house as long as he's in range.

After seeing the insides, it kinda makes you wonder why MS doesn't sell something like this.

Well slap me and call me stupid again. I didn't know what "Wireless Video Interface" actually meant.

Well judging by the size alone it should have been pretty freaking obvious that there's no 360 in there... :P

Nice job! What are you using to transmit the video?
