That man, the myth, the legend, Ben Heck, is at it again. Now he managed to cram the Atari 2600 into a somewhat small, handheld, portable device. Heck went a little old-school with this mod. It may be a little bulky, buy how else can you enjoy some Pitfall anywhere in the world. He also made ran a little Thurderdome action between the portable Atari 2600 (named the VCSp Rev7) and the other clamshell, handheld console, the Nintendo DS. This guy can churn out new console mods quicker than Jason Chen can put them down his pants.

Yeah by todays standards the 2600 is in the dust, but to put that into a portable package is very impressive. I wouldn't go back to playing those games, but that had to take some serious skill to cram that system into a handheld. Outstanding from an engineering point of view, well done.
