Xbox 360 wireless visual interface

[jon barber] pointed out another great project on the benheck forums that hasn’t gotten much attention. [techknott] built a wireless video interface for his Xbox 360. Think of it as a sort of video game thin client. It has the form-factor of a portable but doesn’t include the 360’s components. Instead it has a 1.2GHz A/V receiver and the guts of a wireless controller. The specific transmitter was chosen because it wouldn’t interfere with the 2.4GHz controller. The power supply is two 2600mAh batteries running at 7.5V with a built in charging circuit. The draw from the screen is ~500mA. The entire unit is 1 inch thick.

    now kids can carry game addiction to a higher level by sneaking this in their bed while playing online instead of the ol’ fashioned comic book and flash light sneaking

    XD

    Better that they feed their comic book addiction than their video game addiction, right?
    But, on topic: This is pretty darn cool. I wonder how much pressure it would take to snap off those triggers, though.

    Man, I actually had an idea nearly identical to this several months ago. Though my idea was to connect the video output to a PC with a capture card, and somehow interface to a controller, which would allow you to play your xbox anywhere with web access.
