The 64-Boy: the Littlest N64 Console
April 20th, 2010
If you’ve still got an N64, you probably haven’t used it in a while. The age of Nintendo’s 64-bit gaming platform didn’t stop Bentomo from shrinking his N64 into a portable form. I have to say that this build is totally amazing, reminding me of the TurboGrafix-16 portable, the TurboExpress.
It took Bentomo 3 months to build the 64 Boy, with a total of over 80 hours of actual work. The handheld N64 has a 3.5-inch screen, an external docking station allowing you to plug in real N64 controllers, an external memory pack slot, and 4-hour battery life.
If you don’t have the technical chops to DIY yourself one of these, good news. The 64 Boy is currently for sale right here. The first person to make Bentomo an offer for $1,000 will get this puppy. Make him an offer he can’t refuse!
