Wiitendo – Hack a Wii into a NES Case

Categories: Video, Wii Console Hack.

What makes a Nintendo Wii even better? A Wii that looks like the classic NES console!

Video after the jump.

“This project was a labor of love and took some hours to gut our original Nintendo so that the Wii fit nicely inside. This required lots of dremel tool action. Wired in some fun LEDs, used some Gamecube extention cables to access the ports, threw in a large Gamecube memory card, and waalah, the Wiitendo is born!”

That is the Perfect Nintendo Entertainment System or PNES. I am buying a NES now to do the same thing you rock.

this is awful, you didn’t mod the wii at all. just stuck it in a nes… actually open the wii and take the internals out.

yeah, its a good idea, with some nice touches, but surely it could have been completly fitted inside by removing the wii mainboard and drive, theres even room for the wii psu internally too… at least the wii would not be sticking it’s butt out of the backend lol!!!
Nice work tho…

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
topic to be really something which I think I would
never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

I’ve been reading it for about 6 mthnos. It’s different than digg. Less tech stuff. I like it alot. I first found out about it when one of my blog posts made it on their front page and I saw it in my referral url logs.
