I have a bunch of very cool 80s handheld games - some in great condition, others have seen better days. One I had was totally dead, and no matter how hard I tried I just couldn't throw it away. So instead I decided to bring it back to life with a modern twist.
I scoured ebay trying to find the perfect MP4/MP3 player that I could intergrate into the casing of the game without having to do too much damage to the original look of the handheld. I managed to find the below MP3/MP4 player which with a few modifications actually fitted amazingly well within the handheld.
Check out the clip below on the mod in action:
This really was an easy mod which only needed a dremel, soldering iron and a little ingenuity - anyone can make this.
Here's what you'll need to do...
Step 1: The bits and tools you'll need
- Soldering Iron

List of Material:
- An old handheld game you don't mind modding
- MP3/MP4 Player (the one I used was a touch screen - see intro for details)
