Still got an Atari 7800 lying around? Make it portable, like Ben Heck…


Ben Heck, boy-wonder extraordinaire, has done it again! After modding every current gaming console Gamestation (or the US equivalent) can offer, he’s gone antiquated, with a portable Atari 7800.

As you can see, he’s popped a 7″ colour LCD screen onto the Atari, and included a port for rechargeable batteries, driving and paddle controllers and an AV out port. Geek cred given to you once again, Mr. Heck. Can someone Photoshop up a Heck mascot already?!
