    Nice build, not nearly as complicated as so many others. Did you think about installing a video switch and a 360 in there as well? Would need more cooling or it would melt the case I think :P

    Anyways, thanks for the build and kudos to element 14 for springing for the costs.

    I was the band Incubus’s personal chef for a time. They did a lot of the music for Halo. Microsoft built them a portable X-Box in a pelican hard case, 25″ lcd screen,it was wi-fi capable and had 4 wireless controllers. We played Halo anywhere we wanted. It was presented to the band at their Seattle H.Q. while we were on tour.

  40. Danny Says:

    Good job though, and you should sell it to some units that are deployed overseas.

    I didn’t not realize how simple it is for the PS3 to be taken apart and pretty much modified as well. Nice work and to the couple overseas…don’t play too much and get into trouble now!

    [...] Ben Heck really wanted to change all that. He went on a mission to create the first, almost bullet proof, robust PS3 console briefcase. It’s everything a soldier would want to keep his or her mind off all those horrible things they have to go through each and every day when they are out there fighting. It’s with creativity incentives like this that the world will become a much nicer place to live. Sure, I’d vote for all the wars to have ended long ago, but the reality says another thing unfortunately. [...]

  54. TMD42000 Says:

    Ben,

    I would love to have something like this on the US Navy ship I am currently assigned to. For shipboard electrical safety reasons, the problem with this mod is just that, it is a mod. To use this on the ship, all components would have to remain in their original cases and maintain UL standards. For the lower half, keeping the PS3 in its case would not be a problem. The big problem would be the screen. Can you redesign the build to comply with electrical safety regulations?

    I was think of a few other tweaks including a screen that could unhinged and turned around, retractable power cord, and after market sound/speakers. The Holy Grail would to make it battery operated, that would be too much.

    I have seen another company roll out an LCD and case product, but it looks cheap. Please help.

    I’ve seen a military grade iPhone case. Looks like a toy, which is not a bad thing. Toys are designed to withstand the terrible onslaught of child’s play and survive.
