As many of you are probably aware, by owning a few stockpiled Dreamcast units, us as owners are always looking to keep playing our beloved Dreamcast units but this can become an increasingly hard task with various components getting tired and worn as the years progress, well fear not! There’s a guy that’s got your back if your power supply unit (PSU) has decided it no longer has the power to make your 128 bit dreams come true – the DreamPSU is a device which is currently seeking funding through Indiegogo, this compact device reworks the way the power is handled through the console whilst retaining the original 4-pin configuration meaning you can simply plug it in where the old unit once lay.
The benefits to this new revised design is mainly that the amount of heat that would usually be generated by the original unit is now drastically reduced making for a cooler, and probably more efficiant running of the system in general, naturally this can also free up room inside the plastic casing of the console for more activities. The console however would then run on a 12V power supply unit, so in theory any potential buyer could use a power plug from their own country without the need to physically step down the voltage (or change the original power supply, which most do).

Seems like a brilliant idea to us!
