(Semi) Portable NES

Introduction: (Semi) Portable NES

After reading 1-ups guide on on to make a portable nes (https://www.instructables.com/id/How_to_Make_a_Portable_Game_System/), I was inspired to make my own.
However, I still wanted to be able to play it on the TV. So my solution was to instead of making a fully portable nes, I simply fit it into a case slightly smaller than the original. However, the case now also holds 1 controller, the A/V cables, a game, and the power supply when closed. Making it much easier to carry around.
Kudos to 1-up for the idea, and the great instructions on how to dismantle the NES.

    You at least need a screen and some batteries in there. You can still hook it up to a tv with a screen. People have made it like that before.

    Well, we all need to start somewhere, and the related doesn't show any like this on instructables, so it looks fine to me!

    Yeah, that was were I drew inspiration from, but one of the great thrills of the NES for me is playing it on the big TV, which I wouldn't easily be able to do with that version. Also, my budget is somewhat... Limited... and I spent about $3 on this.

    I have an idea! get one of those little portable LCDs, a nice bright light, some LEDs, and make yourself a projector! plug in the NES, and play on a giant screen anywhere with a clear wall!

    Easy to do and funny Bravo! I think if you put an lacd and a portable tv tuner you could put alll of that in a box and take one single cable from the case to the wall socket.

    LOL.
    My next project will probably be making an NES PC from the case that this one was in, but after that we'll see.
