Switch shaped handheld

Post by Lamuse » Mon Jun 22, 2020 6:39 am

So I've been looking at doing a GBZero, and love the project and still may do one based on the Pi 3 (or Pi 4 when the software fully supports it) and ran into a guy who built one based around a Pi 3 and 7" touchscreen in a case he designed based on the Switch. The case is fully 3D printed with a thicker design so the Pi 3 and 10000mA battery can fit. I've gotten the case printed and just waiting for the parts to come in for it. I cannot wait to see how this turns out and will keep things updated as I go.

software support on the pi4 is here already. i've been doing a couple handhelds based on it, and performance is insane! heat / cooling is the big problem you'll need to solve for.

Yeah, the heat is the one reason I decided to stick with the Pi3. It’s slow going but here is some progress made.
