Portable RetroPie with acrylic panels

Post by rorosmotoro » Tue Jul 03, 2018 6:05 am

An early prototype of handheld RetroPie I'm working on. The only custom parts are the acrylic panels, everything else is off the shelf components. For now I've tested all components and they work. Battery lasts for 5 hours which is fine for a Raspberry Pi 3B+. Next step is to refine the design.

Parts used:
3.5" HDMI screen
Raspberry Pi 3B+
Buttons and PCB from cheap SNES controller
2.5W mono amplifier
0.5W 8ohm speaker
5000 mAh power bank
Two 5mm tactile switches for L and R buttons
