Nintendo 64 modded to mobility, looks like a gigantic Gameboy

There's this fellow by the name of Slipstream, folks, and he's created not on, not two, but three N64 handheld gaming devices, each of them able to play full-sized Nintendo 64 cartridges through a 4.3-inch LCD display - and you'll never guess what the whole final package looks like. Behold the Electus 64, or as I like to call it, the Gameboy Massive. You're about to see a fully functional custom-made setup that'll play everything from GoldenEye 64 to StarFox, all of it from a candy apple red chassis you're bound to have a heart attack over if you've got a mind for retro reborn.

Wooden portable NES mod

Nintendo 64 revived in color Lekki edition

We're certain you did not expect to see the name Nintendo 64 in your news feed today, but there it is - revived by the company called Lekki. This machine will be sold by the company in a collection of new colors never available with the console's standard run. While users were able to get a black/gray unit as well as some particularly flashy bright yellow Pokemon style runs, this release (unofficial, non-Nintendo sanctioned, mind you), will come in a set of white-topped colored-bottom units.

Your Daily Dose of LEGO

Your Daily Dose of LEGO

Is LEGO better than coffee for getting through your day? I wouldn't skip the caffeine, but you can definitely check these out. We have here two separate LEGO projects, both impressive in their own right, for distinctly different reasons. They're both built with the Technic line. The first is an adjustable stand so that bad pixel over at instructables could play Game Boy on his Nexus One using a Wiimote. The second is a robotic factory line with four fully articulated picker arms, or as Chris Shepherd aka LegoShep aka TheOnlyShep calls it, the Lego Quad Delta Robot System.
