I also remember a bigger vintage altoids tin for a plus version, and a hd screen mod for the regular mintypi

Im going to use all that extra space in the altoid's tin to add a RTX 2080 for VR on the go.

I mean, if you cut the tin up and tape it around the card it technically counts, right? :lol:

I suggest not doing the mods...
The banana pi zero can throw out a ton of heat and in a metal tin this is not good, dont see how you can upgrade the shoulder buttons as they are already improved and pretty optimal but id love to hear your idea, and the camera mod.... :|

They would be wider shoulder buttons so you can hit them easier. The camera would probably just be in the bigger tin.

With the laser cut tins this is likely a possibility in the future releases, something akin to the SNES/DMG Start Select Buttons. It will require new silicone buttons to be made of course but it's an interesting idea to contemplate.
