Awesome!

I would not buy this as a unit (as I'd feel much more accomplished in making this on my own), however, I would DEFINITELY pay a reasonable price for a guide or even a small book on how to do it.
I don't care if I'd fail several times in doing it; I just love hands-on things. I have modded several systems but this would really be awesome.

Here here. I have all the tools and hardware I need to make this thing (minus the case..) All I need is some direction from the guru's out there.

We should have a summer school program where they have you make a portable dreamcast.

hm...wouldn't it be funny if someone had their's hooked up to a cellphone so they could go online? Maybe then people would actualy use dreamcall besides myself...*sniff


later,

Yeah, it wasn't up last night, which was disappointing. I'm just taking others' words as far as proof goes ... and, er, uh, others' words = good enough for me.

This is another forum in which dkap01 posted his creation. They also have no further news but one guy was able to salvage some pics. May take a while in dial-up, though.

Yes, I know. I cant wait for dkap01 to stop playing it and post a guide on it. I just want to know how he fit it in and the parts/tools. A case would be nice. I think the case could be sold to us for about 10-20 USD. Just my two cents. We might as well pay for his plastic table case former.

Very cool. Where are his medals?

although i agree that it is a very cool mod (and one that has been tried many times) but im not sure he deserves a "medal". 95% of the people the post in the hardware forums have done there own unique mods, but we never get a special medal (assumin' your talking about ranks, and someone else mentioned he get one), but again, it is a very cool and unique mod, if they give him one then they would have to give a special rank/medal to everyone who does a unique mod like this.

but that is a very cool mod and i would probably pay ~200$ ( 150 more reasonable) for it assuming it is "sturdy" and the battery life isnt like an hour or 2. (wich it probably is i have a feeling, havent seen a note or anything about battery life)

I agree that most everyone here has done a mod, but he has done something more. This is what everyone here has wished for once or twice, and he has achieved it. I mean, anyone can paint it, or add leds, cause all you need is a little knowledge in painting, soldering, and a screwdriver of the right size. But he has taken the cake. They haven't even done this in Asia. But anyways, whatever. I really dont care, just making a comment on how cool it is.

Like I said before, I cant wait for a how to. How much are the cases?

on ur site i saw ur next portable is gamecube. i was thinking about doin that before but it would be really thick i think taking one of the new ps2's and making it portable would be a better idea because it would be smaller
