NEStari – Atari 2600 meets Nintendo NES


No matter how impressive the graphics of new titles, the gameplay of the console classics of our youth will always be close to our hearts. And that’s why someone will spend a large amount of their spare time building something like the NEStari.

That ‘someone’ is Benjamin Heckendorn, who has merged an NES console with an Atari 2600, as well as slapping in a 3.5-inch LCD screen to produce a retro gaming device you can take with you. Indeed, it even comes with a rechargeable battery.

How did he do it? Well, you can find out at his website. Just don’t expect to see it on commercial sale.

One thought on “NEStari – Atari 2600 meets Nintendo NES

  • Ben is amazingly talented, and he’s put his skills to some very good uses, including developing a 1-handed Xbox 360 controller that he made for a man who lost his hand whilst serving in Iraq…he also made a limited number of Atari 2600 handhelds, and I am pleased to say that I got the first one he made. My badge of honour; I would imagine that I’m the only person in London w/ one. Woo hoo!
