Ben Heck’S NES Atari Portable Console Mashup

The master of console mods, Benjamin Heckendorn (aka “Ben Heck”) is at it again. This time he’s created a portable that combines an NES system and a Atari 2600 console, and crammed them together into one compact package.

Ben Heck’s NESTari Portable

Like a Frankenstein’s monster, the NESTari portable can play cartridges from either Atari’s or Nintendo’s classic 8-bit systems. Rather than trying to use original NES and Atari 2600 parts, Ben’s latest mod uses the gut out of an Atari Flashback 2 console and a NOAC (NES on a chip) in order to keep the system portable and power-efficient.

The handheld has a built-in 3.5-inch LCD screen, runs on rechargeable batteries, and has all the controls needed to play all your favorite 80’s console games. These days Ben usually builds his systems on commission, but he decided to just build this one on a whim, so he’s willing to let it go if the price is right (You can contact Ben here if you’re interested.)

There’s a full walkthrough of the build process over on Ben’s website in case you care to see all the gory details.
