How To Turn A Lynx Into a GameCube: The GC-Lynx

There are so many talented folks out there making cool custom modifications on consoles I should be used to it by now, however I can't but feel astonished from time to time when something like this comes along:

Specifics from Akira:

  • Case made out of an Atari Lynx 2 console, shape preserved as much as possible
  • Retro GameCube blue/purple look paint job with glossy finish
  • GameCube pal motherboard inside

  • Full analog trigger (L and R buttons)
  • 4.3 Inch widescreen VGA Screen 480 x 272 Resolution
  • Original Nintendo Component video chip wired to produce VGA out

  • Battery Indicator with 5 leds to see how much power is left
  • 128 MB Memorycard soldered directly onto the motherboard (GameCube slot-A)
