Brian Gardiner, of Rocklin, California, has pieced together his own PlayStation portable for the mere challenge of it all. The device was built from pieces of PSOnes—the smaller, redesigned original PlayStation game console. He reconfigured it all to fit inside a chassis that he designed using Solidworks CAD software and then had fabricated at a rapid prototyping firm. The finished product looks very impressive and of commercial quality, and Brian claims to have had “almost no experience with electronics.” To top it all off, he purchased the palmpsone.com domain and put up an impressive site detailing all of his work. Remarkable. Click.
That has got to be almost as clever as the DDR touch pad Brian and Dave put together last week. Mad props to anyone who takes the initiative and follows through on good old ingenuity. Nice job.
