Toolbox Mod Makes the Wii Ultra Portable

Given the social nature of most Wii games, modifying a toolbox to serve as a Wii briefcase to make toting it to a friend’s house easy is only fitting.

Courtesy of tinker SpicaJames, we find this simple but effective toolbox modification. James originally started his search by investigating getting a Pelican case for his Wii and accessories. When he found the $125 price tag prohibitive (as many of us would for such a side project) he sought out alternatives. A cheap $12 toolbox, a little impact foam, and some handy work with a pair of tin snips to cut out shapes for the Wiimotes, and he had a super cheap and easy to pack and unpack Wii briefcase.

Hit up the link below to check out the pictures of his build.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    …any box makes anything portable. That’s what boxes do.

    @R exactly what I said on dragons den, but no-one invested in my portable elephant box

    @ Scott : that’s cuz you’re suppose to transport elephants into a bag (like with goldfish), not a box –everyone knows that.
