Engadget puts a Wii in your lap



Or should that be on your lap? Either way, one thing's true -- our cooler, better looking Engadget office mates never let us play with their toys, and they get all the best stuff. Sigh. Well, in this case, they make all the best stuff, and soon, they're gonna show you how to create your very own Wii laptop. This bad boy isn't made to just sit around and look pretty, either; it's the real deal tucked into a portable package. Scope the features:

  • 16:9 widescreen LCD, 7-inch diagonal
  • Stereo sound
  • Gamecube controller port
  • Built-in short range sensor bar
  • Ports for original sensor bar and A/V output jacks (for use on external display)
  • Built-in power supply and compartment for power cord
  • Dimensions: 8.5 x 7.7 x 2-inches
Next week, they're going to start putting up a step-by-step tutorial for those of you who suddenly find themselves with a nice, new burning desire for portable Wii action. And if you want to see this one in action, you can head over and check out the video and a huge image gallery showing off the Wii laptop from every angle.
