Atar-E WALL-E Atari 2600 Portable / Case Mod

So, I wanted to do another Atari 2600 mod. This would be my second. My first one was the Atari Hero, an Atari 2600 that you play like a guitar. But, I needed something awesome to house my Atari.

Something portable, but it didn’t have to be tiny. But what? I would know it when I saw it. So I waited. And watched. Then one day I saw this Wall-E Learning laptop at a thrift store. It was fate. Wall-E…Atari. Kismet.

This was mostly all done with a dremel, some screwdrivers and a soldering iron. A dab of glue here and there too. I’m pretty proud of the end result. Everyone is making portables(and this one is pretty portable at 10 inches tall), but I think it’s more fun to mod existing toys and make them cooler. So what if it isn’t the smallest system out there.
