When the impending zombie apocalypse descends upon our sorry butts, we’ll still need to get our retro gaming fix in between pillaging for food, fighting biker gangs, and fighting off the undead. Luckily, Redditor robotairz banged out this shock-proof portable SNES that can keep up to two players gaming long after the world ends.

Check out this O.G. PlayStation customized by Oskunk. Remember back in the day when Sony tried super hard to push Crash Bandicoot as their unofficial mascot? And they had those awesome commercials where he was screaming into a bullhorn outside of Nintendo Headquarters?
Those were days. If Crash isn’t in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Imma be PISSED!

Modder Slipstream (a.k.a. Smakedsam) built a shrink ray then used it on an old Nintendo 64 he had lying around. Just kidding. He’s actually just really smart and good with tools and stuff. And look at that sexy metallic orange gloss! It’s like an oiled-up booty in a rap video!
Here’s a video if you want to get up close and personal.
We’ve featured the work of OSKUNK on the site countless times now, and you know what? We think it’s about time Nintendo or one of the other big console makers hire this dude to design some mass-produced freshness so we can all stop lusting after his amazing one-of-a-kind custom pieces like the border-line erotic Zelda-themed DS Lite pictured above.

Flickr user optimus-convoy tells a story of how he gave his broken DS Lite a new lease on life.
“Once upon a time, a young man bought a limited edition golden triforce Nintendo DS. He loved the way it looked, the way it played, the way it felt in his hands. He took that thing everywhere in his pocket and played tons of great games on it. It suffered a few drops, some selectively unresponsive shoulder buttons, a busted green power LED, but it was still in fine working order.
However, the years eventually took their toll. One day the hinge that held its top screen to its bottom cracked, and that young man was left with a DS with a floppy top screen. Such a terrible fate indeed. He did manage to move on, bought a 3DS for some reason, and kept playing. But when he returned to his DS games, something wasn’t quite right. It just wasn’t as comfortable as his DS of old. So he took it upon himself to return his shining DS to its former glory. A few tutorials and orders from China later, and his DS was back and better than ever.
The moral of this story, kids, is that even if an electronic device seems broken, it could still be a very easy fix if you’re willing to investigate the problem.”
Remember those clear Game Boys from the 90’s? Tech companies need to stop trying to make everything look like Apple products and bring back clear florescent jumpoffs. Them jawns were my jam.
A part of me dies every time I see Sonic on a Nintendo console. As Hank Hill might say, “That’s just not right. That’s like a pretty girl with short hair.” But I can’t deny the awesomeness of these customized Nintendo handhelds.
Oskunk kills it yet again with another custom console. This time he’s whipped up an NES with his own adorable little versions of Mario, Link, and Mega Man.
A Little Bit On The Custom Console Side: Over the years, we’ve posted a LOT of sweet art and custom video game hardware by OSKUNK. Today, we’re happy to share this video of the artist in action as he customizes a Sega Dreamcast. It’s nice to finally see the process after all this time of only seeing the final results.
