[Hailrazer] found a Game Boy Advance carrying case in his closet and thought he could pull off an N64Boy Advance in a few weekends. Despite the fast build time, [Hailrazer] built something that wouldn’t look out of place sitting on a shelf at a toy store.
This isn’t the first time we have covered an N64 Advance portable gaming system that uses a GBA carrying case, but this hack keeps the original styling of the Game Boy Advance without all the epoxy, bondo and sanding. Inside is a 4.3″ screen, GameCube joystick, N64 expansion pack, and enough Li-ion to get 5-6 hours of play time. The build doesn’t include a D-pad because [Hailrazer] doesn’t use that while playing. It also doesn’t have controller or A/V ports, because he doesn’t, “want to sit around with friends playing N64 on a 4.3″ screen.” A very pragmatic build, indeed.
We love seeing people re-purpose odd bits of plastic they have lying around, so we’re wondering when someone with an Original Game Boy Carrying Case will build an NESBoy. Video after the jump.

I wish somebody would start manufacturing these things. (Any of the portable N64 systems) I’d buy one in a heartbeat. (My building skills are much too low to pull something like this off)
this looks cleaner than the previous featured one
Truly amazing – Love it, love everything about it – I wish my hacks would be this neat and professional. Big kudos to Hailraiser.
@nitori There is pretty decent emulation for N64 on the PSP if all you’re interested in is the games.
mario 64 without camera control? THIS IS MADNESS
This has been out for a few months… its old.
I guess he doesn’t play Ape Escape.
@frogs: Uh, the C and R buttons work fine. He adjusts the camera with them in the video, did you not see that part?
