HandyNES: the Portable NES with the Not So Portable Gun

 |  |  |  |  |  November 28, 2011

Behold the latest NES mod, a portable NES from “LovableChevy”, the creator of such mods as the HandyDuo, Handy Gear, and Nintenduo. This one is called the HandyNES.
handynes_portable_nes It’s handy and also compact thanks to the NES cartridge top-loader slot. The code name for this project was “red mushroom”, obviously.


It took her over a month to complete this one and the finished product looks good enough to market, even if the color makes me think of a First Aid kit. Under the hood is a full NES (version 2) console and a 3.5″ LCD screen, powered by rechargeable li-ion batteries, as well as a built-in D-Pad and buttons.

It is pretty cute, but ever since seeing the pic, I just want that gun to be modded along with this portable. It bugs me. I just want it to be smaller and more James Bond-like – something that a woman could use with her feminine NES portable and then conceal in her purse.
