The world’s first PlayStation 5 ‘Slim' was created by a brilliant YouTuber

Now instead of four inches, it's less than one inch thick.

Have you ever wanted a PS5 console but thought it was too big and bulky for your home? After all, it is one of the biggest consoles in modern times.

Well, you are in luck as a DIY YouTuber has now created a PS5 “Slim” model that’s a mere fraction of the original but functions just as well, going from four inches to under an inch. In fact, it measures just a little more than the thickness of the plastic cases that house PS5 games.

The YouTuber is Matt Perks, known as DIY Perks on YouTube, and he is well known for his ambitious DIY projects. In this clip, he manages to produce a slim copper console containing all the key PS5 components.

The console comes complete with a giant external power supply and cooling solution that the PS5 needs to function, but that can be stored in secret, so they don't overwhelm house guests.

How did Perks build this small console? How did he manage to keep all the components of the PS5 but make it so much thinner? Is this projected replicable, and can we create our own slim PS5s? This video answers all these questions and more.
