Super Nintendo Pc Casemod Runs 32-Bit Os in a 16-Bit Box

Check out this clever casemod which combines the shell of an old SNES console with the brains of a modern PC.

Modders quangDX and DuPPs took an old Super Nintendo they had lying around, splayed open its guts and married it with the internals of an Acer Aspire One A150 laptop, then dubbed it the aaSNES1 (is that pronounced assness-one?).

They even threw in some LEGO block circuit board mounts for good measure. The aaSNES1 is a veritable Frankenstein’s monster of a computer.

I especially love how they managed to mount a slot-loading DVDRW drive inside of the Super Mario World cartridge! I had no idea a DVD would fit inside of one of those. Actually, it turns out that the guys actually didn’t have quite enough room inside the UK model SNES cartridge, but they managed to cut things apart enough to get the drive to work. They even rigged the eject button to eject the DVD – nice touch!

While the aaSNES1 casemod looks pretty good already, the modders still plan to tighten up their work further, adding internal speakers, clean up the DVDRW installation, make sure the cooling works (that’s a good plan), install some case lighting, and just generally clean up the cabling. Frankly, all I think they need to do is change the name.
