Nintendo Classic Mini Carrying Case

Carrying cases are trendy again, thanks to the surging popularity of the NES and SNES Classic Mini consoles. Thought I would design a case that features a built-in monitor, a handy feature for gamers who want a compact gaming rig, or a means to game on the go. This case is about the size of a large lunchbox, and was inspired by portable record players.

It transforms from a suitcase into a retro TV, complete with a wheeled cart (the wheels are also functional in suitcase mode). The TV is a USB-powered portable LCD monitor. The flaps on the sides of the case clamp everything down in both suitcase and TV mode.

The transformation adds a great deal of versatility; theoretically you could always use this case, either as an entertainment center or means of transporting the game system. You never really have to remove the console.

There is a drawer beneath the system to store controllers and accessories, perhaps a power supply as well for mobile gaming.

  1. Please direct me to where I can give you money to make this a real thing. I’m sure if you did a kickstarter and got the word out people would go as nuts as I have.

  2. Man this would be amazing for the Switch too. The only gripe I have with the design are the wheels and uncertain if the SNES is locked into place. Be expensive if it was an OLED monitor, but a phone battery that was replaceable would allow the drawer to retain space for controllers. Great idea!
