EVOtainment System - Only serious gamers need apply

If you're an HTC Evo 4G owner who is looking to take your gaming to next level status then you'll want to be looking at picking up an EVOtainment System. Sure, it looks rather silly considering it's a bunch of Nintendo Wii accessories and a generic Evo GPS dashboard mount all stuck together with some nuts and bolts but judging from the video it'll turn you into a mobile Goomba stomping machine when you couple it with an awesome Nintendo 64 emulator.

Do-It-Yourself kits are currently available for purchase at the source link for only $9.99 while quantities last. Keep in mind however, neither accessories nor device are included. They're just sparing you the time of having to piece it all together with a screwdriver. Check out the video after the break folks. [WFB Gadgets]

  • How do you get the Wii remote to connect to the EVO if you are using a Sense ROM? I thought that wasn't possible yet.
  • You have to have a none sense root rom like cyanogen. Just installed wiimote today haven't had time to hook it Up yet.
  • All that's left is hooking up a coffee machine to the bundle. :D
  • N64 emulator is still way too choppy on my evo? Is there a reason why? Does RAM space have something to do with that? I have 50mb left. I have a stock EVO btw.
  • Stock evo needs about 120 free to run smooth.
  • No such thing. Android, like Linux, will cache programs and unload them when more "free" memory is needed. It is very difficult to really know how much memory *can* be available.
  • quite a bit over the top. if your that hard up for gaming you might want to look into getting a life.
  • I'm not necessarily the "hardcore gamer" that I used to be, but this would be great on my commute. And i definitely have a life, fulltime job, and fiancee. I could make my 90 minute commute go by much quicker playing emulators on something like this. tl;dr your "getting a life" comment = invalid
  • Geek factor 11. What's not to love
  • DIY-kit or WTF-kit? Seriously - while an ingenious mod, and nothing I surely could come up with in my wildest dreams, it's not exactly svelte - is it? Save yourself some some time and heft and get these: http://www.wired.com/2011/02/tiny-stick-on-joysticks-for-touch-screen-ga...
  • I'll wait for the BlueTooth game gripper to be released.
  • The kickstart never reached even half the $30,000 requested :(
  • DAMN!
  • could u imagine seeing someone with that out in public?
  • Yes and it would be epic
  • I think it would be fun to whip one of those out during a boring class :)
  • Oooooooh! Ok,I'm gonna make one now. Except mine will be called the Thundertainment! (guess why)
  • I'm not familiar w/ the Wii because I don't have one, but does the bottom controller have to go through Wiimote to work? Does Nintendo not make a Bluetooth variant of the bottom controller? And don't PS3 controllers work over Bluetooth? Has no one made an app that will allow any other Bluetooth controller to work with these emulators? This setup using a Wiimote, steering wheel, & another controller seems like a giant fustercluck instead of using a different controller that is more functional than Nintendo's controllers.
  • 1) Yes it does. Although I don't know why they can't just use the WiiRemote to control the thing instead of the classic controller. 2) No 3) I believe so, yes. 4) Don't know
  • Wow... Ridiculous... If I saw a grown man, in public, playing this, I would litteraly laugh at him... now I can understand a child, but I don't think a child can root and do this to his phone. Hopefully, his mom or dad can do it for him.
  • Ah yes... the video games are only for children argument...
  • never said that... if you read it, it says "grown man... in public" = overkill... i have nothing against video games. and to be honest, I wouldn't let a child play some of the video games on the market. IMO, and I reiterate, IMO!!!
  • Does this come with a helmet clip so I can free up my hands to eat a cheeseburger and drive?
  • WTF?! Serious gamers don't even own a wii.
  • pretty sweet idea... i posted something similar back in july http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=737082
  • wow.. when does serious gamer and wii ever have anything to do with each other? "yo guyz check out meh leet phone" ROFLMAO
