The official 2015 record for smallest portable Nintendo 64 has just been broken by GmanModz.
Unlike the imitators, this particular construction utilizes real parts from the original Nintendo 64 with a printed circuit board that hasn’t seen any redesigns. The shrunken design is due to modern tech such as 3D printers as well as Joy-Con thumbsticks, but ultimately it was the genius of GmanModz.
The techniques utilized were primarily traditional in nature such as component relocation & board trimming. The compact Nintendo 64 features a headphone jack & speakers, a 3.5-inch LCD display (roughly the size of a Nintendo 64 game cartridge), and a 2.5 hour lithium-ion 18650 battery cell. The console can also be played while charging.
