Sure, it’s past its time, but the SEGA Dreamcast is still one of the greatest video game systems of all time. So when I found out that someone out there had turned this classic console into an all-in-one portable, I was stoked.
It took modder Jon Jandran (aka “Hailrazer”) about 90 hours of blood, sweat and tears to transform a kids toy called a “Lazer Doodle” and into an elegant case for his Dreamcast portable that looks as good as anything that could have come off of the SEGA assembly line.
The portable integrates a Sony PSOne 5″ LCD screen, an InterAct Quantum Fighterpad controller, stereo speakers and a battery pack which lets him play for about 2.5 hours on a single charge. Check out the video clip below to see the Dreamtrooper in action.
Originally, Hailrazer planned on painting the case black and calling it the DarthCast Portable, but I think Stormtrooper helmet is more appropriate, since the original Dreamcast was white anyway.
