An Atari 7800 on the go

handheld Atari 7800 portableinside Atari 7800 portable ben heckNot exactly pocket-sized, but definitely portable and quite a bit impressive. Also, and as is usual with these things, this portable Atari 7800 is a Ben Heck creation, sporting a shiny 7" LCD screen, an A/V output jack, rechargeable batteries and a combination driving / paddle controller.

  1. It's a thing of exquisite beauty. Mr. Heckendorn is a genius and his work needs greater appreciation.

    I'd like to buy one of his creations. Or even better be given one!
