Ben Heck’s Xbox One Tablet Is Actually Real.
It’s a very common thing to pass the time with a little bit of building and creating. But it’s not so common to break apart an expensive home video game console in order to get your hands on the parts. Though it’s times like this where it is completely justifiable. Impractical, but justifiable.
The super creative modder and build enthusiast Ben Heck is the man behind the Xbox 360 Laptop and the PlayStation 3 laptop, but rather than simply building an Xbox One laptop, he’s stepping things up. In his recent build he turns the Xbox One, which is one of the clunkiest consoles to date, into a working Xbox One Tablet.
Heck encountered numerous road bumps whilst creating the Xbox One Tablet such as getting the Blu-ray disk drive to spin when at an angle, finding a quality screen of the right size and capabilities and the fact that the guts of the Xbox One aren’t exactly slim in the first place.
No matter how you slice it, this was an impractical and costly build. But I would be lying if I said it’s not cool. I want one.
