When it comes to making geeky gadgets and game consoles, even geekier Ben Heck is right up there at the top of the list of modders to watch. Heck made portable systems out of PS3s and more for a long time before he got his own show with element 14. Heck's latest episode had a cool portable conversion for a Sega CDX machine.




Apparently Heck routed the parts used for the case and everything else needed for the project on the episode. The final product looks pretty darn cool, even if it is big by portable console standards today. Heck said, "It was a blast taking something as awesome as the Sega CDX and making it even easier to use with a smaller footprint so I can bring it with me everywhere. Not only that, but I reminisced about Full Motion Video games from the early '90's and a few diamonds in the rough like 'Snatcher' and 'Lunar: The Silver Star.'"


The episode covers everything for the portable though the design to the final construction. If you really like the finished product, you can even register to win the thing at element14. "This latest episode is a must-see, not only for Sega Genesis fans, but also techies at heart," said Alisha Mowbray, senior vice president of marketing, element14. "While the show is aired in English, it caters to enthusiasts around the globe."
