Building this portable all-in-one game console box was a great decision! Not only does it make it easy to transport, it also protects my game system and keeps it organized.
This is just a description, view the complete Instructable here!
Why build such a thing? Well, I was tired of having to unplug everything and pack up in order to move my game system from place to place. I considered just buying a portable, hand held retro-gaming system, but these would only provide me with a small screen and nowhere to store the cartridges. With this, now all I need to do is plug in a single power cord to the wall, and start gaming. This project also allows me to take my screen with me without fear of breaking it.
I completed this project using mostly things I already had, along with some stuff from my local store. The total price of this project was less than $30, (assuming I already had a screen and game system).
