Ben Heck’s Portable Atari 2600: Hand Soldered Handheld

by Lambert Varias

Back in February, The Ben Heck Show had a special episode where Ben took out the Atari 2600’s CPU, RAM I/O and video driver and hand soldered them to a compact circuit board. Now he’s put together that miniaturized system to make a portable 2600.

Ben designed and printed a case for the portable. He also laser cut plates to hold the buttons and the d-pad. You can check out the finished product at 16:40 in the video below.

I love how he spent an hour rewiring the cartridge connector because he wanted the cartridge’s top label to face the player. What a pro.
