Guess maybe I'll just focus on making it portable. Or maybe a shelf queen coltectable since the game play is barely any good and most of the 2600 games I already have for the original system (don't have a 7800 yet).
I asked about six years ago. It is based on a Nintendo-on-a-Chip--the Novatek 6578, to be exact--and Curt Vendel says that there was a FB1 test unit with a cartridge port on it, but it sounds like the modification instructions (assuming it can even be done with production units) are not forthcoming.
It's unfortunate, too: there is at least one NES multi-cart available now with a board that looks small enough to squeeze inside the FB1 case, so it could make a great little all-in-one NES clone ... if only it was possible to add a cartridge port.

I had an idea for a small thing like that: Put the whole thing inside a cd-rom empty shell, and run it into the video input on most video cards. Have it run on the PC or out to a TV set and have the controllers plug into the front. Kind of a technical thing, but might be workable. I was thinking of this for my Yobo, it's already the size of a CD drive.
