Looks like an ordinary NES...





But it's not...


The carts are inserted like into a normal unit. It has volume control and the display attributes can be adjusted. I've found the screen on ebay and it fits really well. 
I'm still working on it but it's been running perfectly so far. I want to cover the circuit board with a painted aluminium plate and maybe I manage to make some bezel for the screen as well.

Check out the video of it in action:

WTT: Star Keeper for a working TG-16 and a couple of games. Prefer refurbished with new caps and region mod, but doesn't have to be as long as it works. :)

Thanks for your comments, guys.

BTW, you can switch off the screen and still connect the NES to a tv.

Does anyone know a cheap laser cutting or machining site where I can order a customized cover plate for my project?
I tried emachineshop.com but I don't want to spend $300 for one piece of alu...

Benihana works with metal. Not sure the extent, but I imagine he could make a bezel.

I'm curious how many hours/dollars were put into this beast.

Yes, that's me in my avatar.

That's incredible! I was expecting maybe a screen mounted on top of the NES, but that's an awesome little surprize to pop up. My jaw almost dropped...
