Hallmark Donkey Kong Ornament Teardown

In my quest to make the World’s Smallest Donkey Kong Arcade Cabinet, I needed to tear down the 2018 Hallmark Keepsake Donkey Kong arcade cabinet Christmas tree ornament and see how I could use the shell to house my electronics. In this video, you’ll see the complete process (including a lot of trial and error) as well as what makes this “magic” ornament tick!

They’re sold out from Hallmark, but you can try the usual suspects:

Amazon

eBay

PlayStation Classic Controller Teardown

Continuing on our quest to hack the PlayStation Classic and coming off the heels of the console teardown last week, I thought it might be fun to also take a peek inside the PlayStation Classic’s USB controllers and see how they’re put together.

The PlayStation Classic is still a lot of fun. Grab one on Amazon (and hack it): https://amzn.to/2BOteef

PlayStation Classic Teardown

In my quest to hack the PlayStation Classic, I have to first open up the system to see what’s inside and what makes it tick. In this video, we’ll teardown the PlayStation Classic console and explore its insides, determine the state of its build quality, and see what kinds of electronics are hiding inside!

It’s a good console, you should get one on Amazon (and hack it): https://amzn.to/2BOteef
