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!

  3. Man, if this was created for raspberry pi, switches, phones, and other devices, it would probably sell like hot cakes.
