The SNES PC Case Mod

snes-pc-mod-1

The weekends are usually pretty quiet but here is a cool case mod by quangDX and DuPPs. Using the Super Nintendo and the Acer Aspire One A150, they have created a SNES PC Case Mod. The controller ports have been converted to USB adapters (via a faux controller cable), the cartridge is a CD drive and the cables are plugged in through the back.

There is a webcam and mic as well, a small hole was driving in front of the Super Mario World cartridge for the webcam lens and the microphone is mounted right at the front of the SNES in the center of the front vent. Check out some of the images below.

    Instead of using a USB mouse, see if you can use the mouse from Mario Paint :P

    Where did the fan go?

    • quangdx says:

      there's two fans,

      the one that was built on the motherboard for extracting heat from the CPU.

      and we put a 2.5cm fan in the back right of the machine to expel heat from the top of the aaSNES1 out the back vent.

    That's great but…will it still play games?

    • quangdx says:

      of course it will,

      now that it is a PC,

      you can run any game system that has been emulated on it.

      The atom 1.6ghz cpu is capable of running most emulators.

      I've tested it with ZSNES and MAME, both run great.

        Hi Quangdx, welcome to GG and thanks for clearing up the questions for our readers. We greatly appreciate your time and efforts you've put on the mod and best of luck to your future projects.

    Nice to see someone also put a pc into an SNES.

    I am (afaik) the first person who ever fitted both a cdrom drive and an HDD into an SNES. Though I decided not to put the cd drive into the cartridge as it would stick out more than it would originally (like in your snes version).

    Though congrats to you for this piece of work. I know how hard it is to do such a mod. I especially like the lights beneath the four snes dots logo.

    BTW: I also created a USB-Mouse out of an ordinary mariopaint mouse. I just didn't upload the picture to my website yet.

    Anyhow, here's a link to my website. You can find my SNESPC there. http://flobo2000.fl.funpic.de

    Again congrats on a nice project done :)

    Hi,

    we are an eventagency from Germany, Bochum. Since 2002 we organize the DCMM (German Casemod Championsship). After seven years of amazing creations, we want to internationalize the event. For this reason we are searching new modder out of your country. The SNES PC Case Mod is a great idea. It would be, if you could take part on this event.Further information about the facts of this event, you'll find at http://www.dcmm.de.

    Nice post. I be taught something more difficult on different blogs everyday. It's going to all the time be stimulating to read content from other writers and follow just a little one thing from their store. I’d desire to make use of some with the content on my blog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
