FEATURED: The Dream Tablet, a Sega Dreamcast mod by WERD

Dreamcast

During a Holiday Break in 2009, WERD made use of his time and created The Dream Tablet, a Sega Dreamcast case mod that incorporates the console, screen, and battery into an all in one solution.


SPECIFICATIONS:

-13.5″ x 11″ x 2″ Acrylic Case
-Dell E153FP 15″ LCD monitor
-14.8v 6600mah li-ion battery
-Custom Relocated GD-Rom Drive
-It’s thinking



The case was made from Maxi-Cure Acrylic from the Hardware Store, cut down with a Band Saw into pieces and glued together for an overall size of 13.5″ x 11″ x 2″. All the overall ports for Controllers, Power, A/V out, GD-Rom Drive Door were cut with a Dremel tool, while the Speaker Grill was accomplished with the common method of using Perfboard and a Power Drill before painting the case black.



A Dell E153FP 15″ LCD monitor was implemented for the screen, with the Power Inverter motherboard replaced in favor of a Pico PSU for better power efficiency and to save space. 8 metal brackets were welded onto the screen frame to mount it in place inside the case for placement.


Here is where the Dream Tablet becomes really special.
