New Single Handed Xbox One Controllers On The Way!

I am currently re-designing the Xbox One single handed controllers. My goal is to have them available in September of 2018. Features will include:

  • New and improved lower analog stick that doubles as an additional handle grip.
  • New secondary analog trigger that is far more ergonomic than our previous version.
  • No visible mod wires.
  • No visible hot glue.
  • Uses the newest XB1S controller which is Bluetooth compatible for use with non-XB1 devices (PC, smart phones, etc)
  • Hand-built by Ben Heck himself (since I am now retired from YouTube and have more time : )

Thank you for your patience, and keep an eye on this website for product availability.

New Atari 800 Computer Handheld!

Atari 800 Handheld

For the final project of The Ben Heck Show I built an all-new original hardware Atari 800 handheld!

Unlike my past Atari computer laptops this uses the original IC’s with an all-new custom circuit board. It also fits in your hand and runs off Li-Po batteries.

Server Migration

Benheck.com will be undergoing a Server Migration over the next few days. Please excuse our mess!

The forums have been “snapshotted” as of 2-15-18 and their database already transferred to the new site. I want to keep them up as a lot of things still link there but I am going to consider them “classic” from this point forward, a new solution will be incoming.
