Homemade Portable Playstation Won't Win Any Beauty Contests

Normally, the portable consoles that spring forth from the handy folks at the Ben Heck forums are sleek, professional-looking affairs. This wooden PS1? Not so much.

Dubbed the PSOneP and created by a gentleman by the name of gamefreak11, this handheld Playstation is constructed mainly of balsa wood. It has a lid that houses the screen that flips up, and the most ghetto looking controller ever built into the bottom. But hey, it works, and that's certainly more than I can say about any portable console I've tried to cobble together. So kudos to you, gamefreak11, for knowing that the beauty of a portable console is not skin deep. [Ben Heck Forums]
