    Ben Heck is a Joystiq darling. he mods video game machines into portable masterpieces.
    but what makes me want to hate him is, he will only build 1. ONE. so if you have a dream machine, better check to see if he's done it already, then if he hasn't run out and buy the parts and get him to make it. FAST.
    i still have a pic of his 360 laptop and hate him for that one.

    Is it so hard to read the article? Or even look at the picture at the very top? Jesus interwebs makes us lazy.

    Very cool. Reminds me of that handheld N64 from a few years back.

    here's his actual web site....

    people come to him with a "What if?" and if he agrees to do it, they pay for parts and everything and then he goes off to his lab and builds it.

    Like he kitbashes these things. i know that he broke a gateway keyboard down, bought a LCD screen and rebuilt a chassis for the 360 laptop he built.

    Without looking at the tread title or reading thread, can someone please explain to me what this post is about? Is this about arcade games or what?

    well actually, I did look at the picture. and I still couldn't figure it out, because from the image it just appears to be what I said, but didn't care enough to bother looking around on the site to find out what it was. you could've probably replied politely and answered my question in as few words as it took to post that.

    And you could have read the article in the time it took to post the question about what the article was about.

    Speaking of modding things into handhelds, I grabbed a palm one folding keyboard at value village yesterday. I'm going to use it to turn my PSP into a dedicated DOS gaming platform. The guy in front of me, though, he got a way better deal. He had the game gear tv tuner.

    For those of you who don't know, the TV tuner made the game gear into a very crappy portable television. It picked up maybe one station, if you were in a fairly well-populated area. The important thing is that it made the game gear screen use RF input. This makes it a very handy base for console-to-handheld conversions. Because they're so useful, I've seen them go on ebay for upwards of eighty bucks. The pricetag was $3.99

    No, he builds a laptop chassis, screen, keyboard, etc around a console. Click the link, view the pic, and it'll make sense.

    what was so difficult to understand about:
    PS3 laptop? in a website where we have car robots, and yet PS3 laptop is confusing?
    i admit i accidentally put the wrong link in at first, but the rest is like buttah to figure out.
    his other projects may seem ridiculous, ( wooden portable NES- which is an 8 bit Nintendo console he encased in wood and made it portable) but he has a one handed controller that looks promising.
    well, looks promising for the hentai game market, lol.
