Our favorite modder of all things video game has to be Ben Heckendorn (aka “Ben Heck”.) He’s brought us portable Xbox 360s, Atari 800s and the original portable version of the Atari 2600 VCS.
Ben’s latest endeavor was to take his original Atari VCSp (his first portable 2600,) and update it into a cleaner more modern design. Inspired by the Nintendo DS Lite, the new VCSp Revision 7 is a true thing of beauty. It features a fully-functional Atari 2600 system and a 3.5″ color LCD screen, all running on 4 rechargeable AA batteries.
If you haven’t visited Ben’s website before, it’s well worth a look. The man is a genius.
