ShockSlayer’s Wii Portable Skips the Disc

by Paul Strauss

How’s this for an impressive feat? This Nintendo Wii is completely portable, with everything needed to play hundreds of games built into a single compact device.


Modder ShockSlayer created this compact “Wii Laptop” out of a couple of poly cases and a 7-inch LCD screen. The whole thing runs on rechargeable batteries, and even has sensor bar LEDs built into the case above the display. He also built in three speakers. Under the hood, ShockSlayer replaced the Wii DVD drive with something called a SunDriver, which allowed him to put an SATA drive inside, then loaded it up with games he burned from original game discs.

I’m not sure why he opted to load it with GameCube games, but it doesn’t sound like there’s any reason why the SunDrive can’t handle Wii games. Still, it’s a mighty cool build, and until the 3DS comes out, it’s probably the most powerful Nintendo portable you can get your hands on. You can find out more about the build over on ModRetro Forums.
