We've seen a lot of cool console mods in the past, from portable GameCubes all the way to Game Boy glow-ups, but recently we stumbled across something we couldn't help but write about.
Scrolling through Twitter, we came across this incredible micro-TV with a built-in Super Nintendo that took us completely by surprise (as it did our friends over at Nintendo Life). The build is the creation of a Japanese Twitter user named @limonegongbang, and from what we can gather, he has precedent for making mods of this kind, with his YouTube featuring other videos of a portable SNES and portable PS2.
For those in the know, you'll likely recognize this tiny machine as a miniature SF1, a '90s collaboration between the electronics company Sharp and Nintendo. The original SF1 allowed players to plug their cartridges straight into their TV, but was only made available in Japan.
@limonegongbang's micro version of the machine contains a 5.5inch LCD screen, RGB output, stereo sound, and a USB C port for a 5V power supply. He has a video over on his channel showing in detail how he created it, as well as some footage of it in action, running Super Mario All-Stars (or Super Mario Collection, as it is known in Japan). You can check it out below.
It's a nifty little invention, and something we'd love to own ourselves. What we're wondering, though, is what you would choose to play on it first? Let us know below!
Wow, no comments yet... why not be the first?
