N64 in an N64 controller

We’ve seen portable N64s before, but none were at the level of [Bungle]’s oversized N64 controller casemod.

Instead of the usual ‘sanding Bondo and gluing styrene’ method we’ve seen in other casemods, [Bungle] decided to make a silicone mold with a positive master. Not only did [Bungle] end up with a case indistinguishable from something produced in a factory, but the molding process left him with more internal room and the ability to make identical duplicates of his over sized controller.

The electronics are the standard fare – a slightly modified N64 with a PSone LCD screen. Because the rumble and memory packs are built in to the body of the gigantic controller, [Bungle] added a multifunction pak to provide ports for power, brightness controls, a/v, and a second controller.

This is an amazing build that really steps up the game for console modders. You can check out [Bungle]’s demo video after the break.

Thanks [Raizer04] for sending this one in.

    1. Yeah that bugged me too. If he thinks it’s the “greatest controller ever made”, why did he feel compelled to ruin it’s reason for being different? I wonder where he put the Z-button…

    2. If the joystick was in the middle as on the original tri-wing controller, I’d have to hold it by the center and right wing, making my view of the screen crooked! :p

  1. Seriously excellent. I will definitely read the build log with great interest. Oh, @anonymous: because in a normal n64 controller, the analog stick is typically used with the left thumb.

  2. If you jump to the blog then note that it’s only page 5, there are a total of 9 pages of build photos and comments containing an incredible wealth of information. This is an astonishingly good build (it’s got me thinking about all sorts of projects I want to try myself) but Bungle’s efforts to document the whole process from day 1 is what really makes this one stand out.
