Atari Lynx Hits The Big Screen With TV-Out Modification Kit

Atari-Lynx-TV-Out-KitLooking back at early portable gaming, we have to admit that colour screens rivalling the Nintendo Game Boy all suffered from blurring and light-leakage. Similar to the Sega Game Gear, the Atari Lynx’s display left a lot to be desired. This, however, is all about to change thanks to an all new modification which allows you to output the Lynx’s video to a television.

Similar to the GGTV project which introduces a video out port to the Game Gear, the Atari Lynx TV-Out provides a VGA port to the 1989 handheld. Using the Atari Lynx TV-Out, you’ll finally be able to play the likes of Ninja Gaiden and Kung Food on the big screen, all in fantastic clarity. The brains behind the project, unsurprisingly is none other than Furrtek - the same one who created the Super Neo Geo Pocket and Nintendo Virtual Boy TV-Out modifications. Needless to say, the guy certainly has a few tricks up his sleeve for classic consoles and handhelds.

The Atari Lynx TV-Out is currently available by directly contacting Furrtek himself on his website. Kits to install yourself are being sold for $115, while those wanting their handhelds to be fully setup will need to splash out $130.
