Someone is making an internal board to convert N64 to HD

Feb 28 // Chris Carter

You'll need a soldering iron though

The Nintendo 64 is one of my favorite consoles in history. Because of the unique nature of the console, the vast majority of its releases were exclusive, as opposed to the massive multiplatform parity we have today. As a result, the library still stands on its own with a ton of classics in tow. Sadly, it's becoming harder and harder to hook things up as more TVs ditch legacy inputs. 

So one person took it upon themselves to create a board that can be installed into your N64 to output HDMI, VGA, or DVI. Note that you'll have to actually solder this in yourself and it won't be easy, but still -- it's great that the gaming community is out there working on ways to preserve the legacy of gaming.
