With a tangle of wires, sea of control pads and a shelving unit full of multiple consoles, one console modder decided enough is enough. After years of experience converting retro consoles into portables, well known modder Bacteria is currently underway with Project Unity- combining 20 different consoles into 1.
This already impressive project aims to take things a step further by making the device run not only from a single power supply and one tv out cable, but also by using a single multi-console control pad. This all in one control pad solution features a combination of just about every accessory you could imagine, in what appears to be an ergonomic and surprisingly small device.
Although still a work in progress, Project Unity will consist of the following consoles- Sega Master System, Sega Mega Drive, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, Nintendo NES, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Nintendo GameCube, Game Boy Advance (via a Nintendo Gamecube GBA Player), Mattel Intellivision, Commodore Amiga CD32, Philips CD-i, Sony Playstation 2 (which also plays Sony Playstation 1), SNK Neo Geo MVS, ColecoVision, NEC TurboGrafx / PC Engine, Atari 7800 (with Atari 2600 functionality), Atari Jaguar, and of course the obscure Amstrad GX4000.
This project, however, is one that needs to be seen. Luckily for us Bacteria has been showcasing his progress on YouTube, which you can view below:
