Nintendo’s current handheld has mutated over the years (as their handhelds are wont to do), from a hefty brick Phat model to the sleek lines of the latest iteration, the DSi.

Nintendo Dsi Goes Multicolor
The Nintendo DSi has only been out in Japan since last November and already the line is expanding to include a new range of very bright colors: pink, green, and blue. Not, it must be said, the blue that’s coming to the United States this spring, either.

Atari 2600 + Sega Game Gear = Atari Gear 2600 Portable
Casemodders have implanted the brains of the Atari 2600 into all sorts of strange host bodies over the years, but this is the first time I’ve seen this particular permutation. Modder Chris Koopa (with a name like that, I’m shocked he hasn’t done any Nintendo mods) melded the shell of old SEGA Game Gear portable with the guts of an Atari 2600 to create this Frankenstein’s Monster of a gaming system, dubbed the Atari Gear 2600.

Sure, this portable gaming system might LOOK just a little bit like the Sony PSP, but don’t expect it to play any games made in the last 15 years.

Perfect for the occasional on-the-road game of Super Mario World or Star Fox, this portable SNES was put together by retro modder Kotomi, who’s earlier work includes the great NES in a cartridge mod.

Bandai Tuttuki Bako: Stick Your Finger in the Hole

Bandai Tuttuki Bako: Stick Your Finger in the Hole
This new interactive toy from Japan involves sticking your finger in a hole on the side of the box to interact with a virtual environment. Really. I’m not kidding.

Sega Dreamcast Stormtrooper Portable: the Dreamtrooper

Sega Dreamcast Stormtrooper Portable: the Dreamtrooper
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.
