We recently discovered an amazing new portable Nintendo Wii called the GloWii, created by modder ShankMods.
While playing this device in bed with a partner trying to sleep might be annoying, it would certainly attract a lot of attention if used in public. In fact, most people probably wouldn’t even know what they were looking at.
To better understand this innovative product, let’s take an in-depth look at the GloWii and see what’s inside this portable light show.

GloWii by ShankMods
The GloWii contains a real minimized Nintendo Wii motherboard, which is a source of pride for modders like ShankMods. This level of modding involves not just adding an emulator to a shell, but actually reworking the original hardware.
We’ve seen other impressive home consoles transformed into portable versions in the past, such as the beautiful handheld Wii by GingerOfMods and the unique PS2 portable handheld. However, what sets the GloWii apart is the addition of reactive ambient LED lighting integrated into the console’s shell.
