Shank just posted a video showing how to integrate LED ambient lighting into a portable Wii with a transparent case. I’ve always felt that (when done right!), ambient light can really add to your overall experience, but I never considered how it would work in a portable. Spoiler: It came out awesome.

I’d love to see how the community is able to build on this idea. Would other handhelds benefit from a clear case and LED lights? What about emulation solutions like the Raspberry Pi (software emulation) and the MiSTer project (hardware emulation)? Could Hyperion be integrated directly into those? Is it even worth it?
Only time will tell, but I feel there’s a ton on untapped potential here!
