Colecovision portable

colecovision

Ben Heckendorn has been busy this holiday season. His latest project is cramming the guts of a Colecovision into a portable case. The project was commissioned, otherwise he probably wouldn’t have tackled it. The first bit of weirdness he found was the use of +12V, +5V, -5V lines to power the console. To get the board to fit in a smaller space he “flattened” it, remounting the components so they have a lower profile. The screen and case are standard issue Ben Heck, which he admits he can pretty much build with his eyes closed now. All told, it still looks great, but Ben says he isn’t going to be repeating this project any time soon because of the complexity involved.
