Ben Heck has done it again! Ben as you may know is a master at taking videogame consoles and transforming them into portable devices. He’s taken Super Nintendos, N64s, PS1s, and a whole mess of others and turned them into portable and awesome looking machines. Some of his more recent mods have involved taking the Wii and the Xbox 360 and turning them into laptops.
Ben revealed his PlayStation 3 laptop this past week and has completed the current generation laptop mods. The PlayStation 3 laptop was commissioned by the crew at Engadget and will actually be going up for charity auction very soon. The project took about 14 months on and off making this Ben’s longest project to date. As for the specs:
- Original backwards compatible 60GB model
- 17-inch LCD HDTV screen: 720p
- HDMI-DVI connection (same as last Xbox 360 laptop)
- Built-in keyboard, USB ports, stereo speakers, headphone jack
- Size: 17 x 13.75 x 3-inches
- Weight: 16 pounds!
Video of the PS3p in action and more pictures can be seen over on Engadget. What do you think of it? I’m still waiting for the mod where I can inject videogames straight through my nose. LIKE COCAINE!
