first portable done

Post by stuartjmoore » Fri Jun 17, 2005 11:59 pm

Just a basic hip gear/radica portable. Since it's my first one, and I want to make more, I left things out. No audio amp, I just wired up a potentiometer and speaker. No cartridge slot, because Sonic the Hedgehog is a good enough game. Vacuum formed case one day.

looks great, and best of all it's extremely portable.

if you ever do put a cart slot on it, it will be perfect--much smaller than a nomad.

now I want to make one....

Neat, but are you sure you can play it with all that exposed curcuitry? It would be better if you superglued some plastic sheets (cut to size of course) over the back area and the front PCB. That would make it much safer.

Good job keeping it small! that's gotta be the smallest Gp I've ever seen.

My plan was to make a small portable, the main reason why I left out so much stuff (ie the cart slot). The dimensions are over 6.5 inches long, over 2.5 inches tall, and about 1.5 inches at the thickest. I will be adding a case one day, with two circular d-pad like buttons.

That thing is really small, nice job. I plan on making one a lot like this, v1 without a cart slot, v2 with. At some point I'm making something with both a GOAC and NOAC in the same case. Anyways, again, nice job.

very impressive/ As mentioned before you want to cover up the circuitry cause if you spilled a soda or it started to drizzle outside while u were playing that would really suck. but other than that it is one damn awesome portable.

I was thinking about something like that, but instead a MiniSNES and GOAC, damn nice job!

Nice portable :P . I made one like that, but using a NOAC. Let me just warn you. I kept my thing open like that too. And one day while I was playing, ZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP. In goes 30 V (bad AC adapter) of electricity through my body. I have burnt fingertips which eventually healed. So nice portable, bad safety

First I would like to say that is a very nice portable. I was wondering, how did you flip the screen like that? I checked my hip gear screen and the ribbon goes into the top of mine. Having it go in the bottom could have saved my hipgear (the cable flexed and broke, in my case). Could you do this with other displays (a flipped psone screen would radically change my design)?
Thanks
