Here’s ANOTHER handheld Raspberry Pi game console!
Update: I remixed this design to use nicer buttons here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1595698
It was designed to use the Pi Zero and fit smaller printers (80x104mm) whilst still being simple to put together. The front and back are completely separate until you close the case, so you can work on one half at a time and keep everything neat.
This build pretty much follows the Adafruit PiGRRL Pocket one, but the image doesn’t work on the Pi Zero (for me anyway) so you’ll have to manually set up the screen and buttons after installing a Retropie image for the Pi Zero. This build does not have any audio.
