A guy by the name of Ed has created a beautiful custom gaming laptop that contains an Xbox 360 and an XBox One, thus solving the backwards compatability issue of the original system.
Gamers can now play both new and old games with a simple flip of a switch while they are on the go!
The inside fits all the circuitry, wires, HDMI outputs, and a built in 22″ Vizio 1080p LED LCD monitor allowing for a splitter to alternate between the two consoles. Surprisingly only one power supply and power cord is needed, and so far Ed hasn’t encountered any overheating problems despite all the that is found within.
Ed even slapped on some custom “XBOOK DUO” graphics to the outside making this device something that any gamer would enjoy.
Ed developed this amazing beast of a machine at his own high-tech garage which is practically a makerspace in itself. He also uploaded a nice video to Youtube to show how it was made.
Other projects of his include a similar device that stuffs a Playstation 4 into a box just like this that can also be transported easily on the road, and a DIY Keypad Entry for a Jeep Wrangler as well.

Ben Heck has been doing this kind of thing for a couple of years. He hasn’t done one portable with two though.
