Making the PSP not so portable

[alien x] has posted this peculiar hack for a PSP. He has gutted and splayed the PSP spreading its insides neatly and mounting them on a plexiglass back. Everything is easily accessible and ready to tinker with. It may not fit in your pocket, but adding mods and experimenting with ideas should be much easier like this. It looks pretty cool too, we want one for our office wall. That could be possible too, he’s selling it.

[thanks doodle]

    a rebuild and redesign adding new features to the device like bluetooth audio, don’t know if the psp already has that, or more memory. It’s not quite as complicated a breakdown as I first thought but still interesting. great job alien x.

    It seems that the overall quality of comments has gone way down since the email verification requirement disappeared after the server move.

    this is nice; however not as comprehensive as i would have hoped. but that kind of backward engineering is beyond aone man…even the great alien x

    After I lost my psp2000 and realizing it’s somewhat hard to find a new one since it’s been replaced by the 3000, I gave up on the handheld scene.

    There’s no point in having a handheld if I can’t have my homebrew.

  8. Isnt this f**kin sweet!!! Cool to know some of my PSP parts contributed to this project!!! But that is all I had to do with it. Really cool and clean Alien_X!!!!

    Sounds like a great test system for new ideas for mods. I was looking into adding the 30gb drive from an i pod to mine, but fitting it in the case will be the real trick.

    I’m wondering what’s the point of making something that is portable to not be portable. :)

  13. PSP Hacks says:

    I fail to see the point unless your moding a PSP every day.

    I was looking up PSP hacks today and came across this page. The link to the information linked in the post is no longer up. Does anyone happen to know where I could find the info on this mod or similar? Please reply here. Thanks.
