Interesting, but why ape the turbob but not mention it at all?  Did he think nobody would notice?

Also, he should look into body filler.

I haven't watched the entire vid yet, but I'd assume the laptop mobo base decided a lot of the design. I'm sure YT comments section will chime in with the TG-16 likeness :)

Yeah, it seems heavily modeled off the laptop mobo. There are some comments in the video now that reference the TG16/PCE, but he I haven't seen any messages from the video creator explaining why he chose that form over other, more popular, vintage consoles.

This reminds me of the fake "Coleco Chameleon" in a transparent Jaguar shell with a video card inside.
