N64 front

Have you ever felt the urge to play Jet Force Gemini one more time, but you're sitting on a bus or plane? You're in luck, as console modder Bungle has created what may be the definitive portable Nintendo 64. It's his fourth attempt at the concept, with more to be made in the future. Check out this nifty behind-the-scenes video:

The curved design mimics the curvature of the N64 cartridges, although the all-black look with the contours evokes the Sega Genesis (Mega Drive) controller shape. Bungle's specifications for this system are as follows:

Custom controller-shaped case with hand grips
3.5" screen
Battery: 4400mAh at 7.4v
Battery life: 4 hours 15 minutes
Expansion Pak
Battery indicator
1st party N64 controller
Custom buttons and d-pad, dual z buttons
Gamecube style replacement joystick
HMDX Go Portable Audio amp and speakers with volume buttons
Switchable internal memory/rumble

N64 back

It's quite a meaty package, and Bungle must be commended for swapping out the N64's original rickety control stick for the GameCube's supple, sublime alternative. If you want to get your hands on one of these portable 64-bit beauties, join the console modding forum Bacman or subscribe to Bungle on YouTube for future updates.
