I wanted an N64 Portable Console for myself because I love the Nintendo 64. When I researched it online there were only a few out there and no one was willing to build me one for less than $1000. Most people can't afford that for a vintage system and I'm one of most. I then began to research building my own. I found many tutorials online showing me how to build my own, and shortly after was in business. I seen, and talked to so many people online who wanted one as well so I decided I would attempt building them for the public. I quickly realized why people were charging an arm and a leg to build one of these. I ran into two issues that lengthened the time it took to build greatly. My two biggest obstacles were gathering the supplies needed for each console separately as orders came in, and creating the case used to house the internal components of the N64 Console. The idea came to me then. If I could take care of these two problems for everyone and offer a kit to put your own console together we could all have N64 Portables, and fast! With these kits I will include every last thing you will need to build your console including a soldering iron, and the exterior case made from a pencil box carrying case. I know everyone will love this idea and I figured it would be a perfect KS campaign. Pledge with me and I will ensure you get one of the first Build your own N64 Portable Kits available. If this campaign is successful I will launch an online market place where people can come to order the kits ask questions and communicate with each other via forums and email.

When the site launches these kits will be priced at $250-$300, but if you pledge now you can receive yours for only $200 including shipping as a thank you for helping get this product out there.

Listed below is everything that will be included in your kit.

1) Step by Step Instruction Guide

2) Nintendo 64 Controller

    3) 3.8mm and 4.5mm Gamebit screwdrivers (for taking apart your N64)

4) Batteries (Lithium Polymer)

    5) 3.5 inch screen. (7.4 volts and accepts composite input.)

6) Audio Amplifier

    7) Copper Ram Heatsinks

8) Soldering Iron

9) Voltage Regulator

10)16v 100UF Capacitor

11) 2K Resistor

12) Charger

13) Protection Circuit  

    14) Thermal Adhesive Glue ( for gluing components into case and for gluing on heatsinks)

15) Case: pencil box carrying case ready to fit components inside.

Pledges will use their existing N64 console for the components needed. Everything else is supplied. I originally was including the consoles in the kit however each reward level was $50 higher to account for the cost of the consoles. If anyone wants the console included just pledge $50 more than the cost of the reward and let me know in a message so I can include the console for you.

Your end result will be a fully portable N64 console similar to a gameboy that accepts N64 cartridges!

Risks and challenges

The only risk to this project is that I encounter shipping delays with the supplies needed to build the consoles. The risk backing this project is almost non existent. Everyone will get what they pledged for in a timely fashion.
