Custom Gorilla Glass screen glass?

Post by multigamesystem » Mon Sep 18, 2017 9:48 am

I heard through the grapevine that someone here makes custom GBZ Gorilla Glass acreen glass. Is this true and who can I speak to about it?

Here is the portable I designed and built. Im making more and would love to use something more scratch resistant than acrylic.

Here is my project

Very nice build! I saw that you posted this build on the RetroPie handhelds facebook group. As for the glass screen, the user Day had a buy and sell thread for gorilla glass screens at one point. Not sure what they are doing now...

IIRC the last batch was the *last* batch - they were getting small runs done as 'samples' because the factory's minimum order was way too large, but the factory basically cut them off because they didn't want to keep producing 'sample' orders forever.

So what they are selling here is limited? https://retropiehandhelds.com/product/c ... escription

Or is this another batch from another company?

Ah I was just speaking about forum members selling here. You can buy GBZ screens from handheld legend, kitsch bent, gooeys, and probably a few other online stores, like the one you posted. Turns out the link you posted is from the user jermzz, I didn't realize he had a purchase thread or website listed here.

Looks nice! Totally eating my heart out right now. ;)

The people rodocop mentioned would be good to reach out to, especially Day.

Indiegogo & Kickstarter that thing!

Let's get this thing mass produced by the thousands to the tens-of-thousands!
1st MintyPi Project (Completed)

Don't support thieves like ckliang who copied Helder's AIO to resell and is now cloning the mintyPi, support the original creators and not the thieves!

Oh, sweet.
I've got 5k lying around, I do not need. Should I just straight up burn it, or should we act like you would actually use it to build stuff you promised?
