Step 1: Stuff You'll Need

All you need is a chumby, a 9 volt battery and candy (optional).

Step 2: How to Make It Wireless

First, flip your chumby upside down. There is a little velcro thingy, so open it. And what do you know? Theres a 9 volt battery snap. Connect the 9 volt and turn it on! Now you have a truly wireless chumby! I would not always have it running off a 9 volt because it will drain pretty quick. This would be use ful at coffee shops, etc.

    No, im not kiddin. Yes I have seen my friends chumby, but I don't like it. A homebrew psp can have many applications placed on it like an open source rss feeder and many others plus you can download as many games and emulators as you want to play, there are way more possibilities and things you can do with it. It can be modded to have a universal remote on it, or a radio, or whatever!! It is much better than a chumby. A chumby is a damn rip-off.

    That 9v battery is meant to be a backup, and is not meant to be run by said battery -- it lasts only an hour.

    Says so on the website ;-P
