Console modding is always fun, fine-tuned, and fascinating, and we have a really bite-sized (but extremely dense) example here: a tiny GameCube, dubbed the GameCube Nano, built with actual Nintendo hardware and laborious care.



Made by Macho Nacho Productions, the console utilizes the GameCube tech found in a Wii and whittles it down to tiny size while adding the proper converters to enable the console to run properly. It’s not a perfect 1:1 replica of every aspect of GameCube hardware (it doesn’t utilize a disc tray, for example). Even so, it’s an impressive effort for such a novel idea, and worth seeing the process for.
