Dreamcast controller mod takes the Wii U pad to the next level

dreamcast-controller
Imagine if SEGA released a color screen on the Dreamcast controller, but not only that it would act like the Wii U and allow you to play games in your controller. Crazy right? I guess if you want it badly enough everything is possible as this hack shows. The modified controller features a 3.5 inch color screen that will display on both a connected TV and on the controller. So what if you wanted to just play on the controller? What about sound? Yes, it has built in speakers. But where does the VMU go? It actually has a VMU built in as well!

      @ Kolma – the VMU was mounted in the back. Looks like he used the first slot for the new electronics. The rear slot had a VMU in it.
