DIY Portable Nintendo 64 Kit Arrives On Kickstarter

DIY-Portable-N64-Kit-on-KickstarterYou’ve all seen those stunning custom made handheld consoles from portable Atari 2600s to Nintendo GameCubes - but have you ever considered building one yourself? Needless to say the very thought of starting from scratch on such a project is daunting, but this may now become a thing of the past.

Nicholas Sallee recently launched a Kickstarter project to help fund a DIY kit to create your very own portable Nintendo 64. The kit which can be secured with a $200 pledge not only provides everything you need to give your N64 its very own screen, but also detailed instructions and guides on how to convert the console into portable form.

Seeking just a mere $5,000 on Kickstarter, Sallee is currently 10 kits away from securing funding for the project. So should you feel up to the task of opening up a classic console and turning it into something special, head on over to the Nintendo 64 (N64) Portable Console: Build your own Kit Kickstarter to find out more!

Too bad the kit does not include something better than a $2 pencil box to keep everything in place. I don't think that will hold together for long.
