    In my early days as a portablizer wannabe I stumbled upon this video during my endless youtube sessions, I'm sure some of you have seen it as well.
    The video made me think, what happens when you put a nintendo 64 game in a wii? The question lingered in my mind since, and I realized I had to build it. So I did.

    It's a Nintendo 64 inside a Wii case :tophat:
    Cartslot and P1, P2
    USB port for P3 and P4, small switch to toggle the front blue cd slot illumination, Multi-AV out, Wii power socket.

    It uses this circuit for the soft on off power button. Latching power switch uses momentary pushbutton

    Video of it in action (Snackar svenska så ni fattar nog inte) https://youtu.be/GlwDOCAAss4

    Very interesting mod! I like how you kept the wii case all original even using the hinges

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah, making the hinges work took some time, before I used the pieces of plastic that originally held them in place. Otherwise the hardest part was the soft on off switch, but mostly because I didn't really know what a transistor was :p

    Transistors are life-changing, aren't they?

    This is pretty slick. If I ever wanted an N64 console hooked up to the TV again, I'd want it in a case like this. Good work.

    If it weren't for transistors, I wouldn't know any of you.
    Probably would have been a better life, tbh.

    Blimey! That is a clickbait title if this chap has ever seen one.

    Mighty good work!

    Cheerio! Goodday!
