On top of this, Chris has furnished this VMU with a backlit screen so even on the darkest of nights you'll still be able to check on your Chao or play Flappy Bird/Street Racer. Reports that thugs have been doing this while laying in wait for Pokemon Go players to pass by are unconfirmed.
Hi Tom! I know that I've promised a wireless keyboard and wireless light gun - I have them scheduled for later this year. Until then, just a heads up for a mod I decided to create this week - the rechargeable VMU!
This is a regular VMU that is modded to be powered from an internal built-in rechargeable Li-Po battery and as you can see in the photos, the VMU has not been modified externally - except for a LED on the bottom. When the VMU is plugged in the controller, it will charge while you are playing and the LED will glow red. When the VMU is fully charged, the LED will glow blue.
Also, in this mod I have included the VMU screen backlight - all in one."

Obviously, this isn't the first time we've seen a VMU with a screen light, but it's certainly the first with a rechargeable battery and indicator LEDs. Chris hasn't made any plans to make this (made to order) mod available to purchase at present as the cost of creating the unit is quite high apparently, however if there is enough demand this could change. For now, this is just an intriguing look at the versatility of the VMU hardware. Next up: wireless light guns!
For those interested (and with deep pockets!), the DreamConn 4.0 is still available here.
