Version 10

    PlayStation Classic Portable Prototype

    element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos


    The PlayStation Classic is the latest in a line of retro-inspired "plug-and-play" consoles capitalizing on the nostalgia train led by the Nintendo NES and SNES Classics, but there's something about it that's just a little amiss. Matt attempts to fix the alleged shortcomings of the PlayStation Classic by converting it into a portable, handheld system so he can enjoy his nostalgia on the go! The task may be easier said than done, though, as he has to battle against southern California's Santa Ana Winds (and their requisite high-static environment), an ailing 3D printer, and the eccentricities of Sony's budget circuit board to assemble a proof-of-concept prototype that will either work flawlessly or just explode in his hands!
