How to make handhelds out of consoles?

Hi I want to make handelds out of gaming consoles like the Sega Master ( for better quality than a game gear), the SNES, the Colecovision, the Intellivison, the Atari 7800 and maybe the Atari Jaguar to name a few. Basically, I want to make a collection of portable consoles. Can somebody help me find tutorials or anything?

Best you can do is open up the units and see what you can do to make the case smaller and integrate a screen of some sort. The most common screen used in mods like this are the ad don screen for Sony's PS1 consoles. Then you'll want to integrate a controller can into the case and find a suitable power source to run it all.
