This is a case for a portable arcade based on the Raspberry Pi 3 named the MyPi. The MyPi was designed to use a 5 inch LCD to make viewing more comfortable and was designed with stereo sound to enjoy classic arcade music such as the music used in the Outrun arcade game.
Enjoy the ability to play retrogames on a large LCD anywhere, or use the composite output of the Raspberry Pi and play retrogames on an old CRT TV (LCD TVs work too) for that trip back in time to the 1980s or 1990s or even from the 1970's.
Have you ever wondered what games were like on the Sinclair computers? Commodore computers? Maybe you'd prefer to experience those SNES games or Sega Genesis games again? There are more than 50 different emulators available for RetroPie - experience them all at your fingertips with the MyPi.
The 3d printable MyPi case and parts will need an electronics kit to complete the MyPi build.
There are 3 kit variations for the MyPi available. The Premium Kit includes everything needed including all electronics and a 3d printed case and a comprehensive manual for building the MyPi.
The Basic kit contains a 3d printed case and many parts that are contained in the Premium kit; however, unlike the Premium kit , it does not include a Raspberry Pi. The user is expected to have their own Raspberry Pi and other components as detailed in the kit description listings
The Budget kit, contains only basic support electronics to build the MyPi as detailed in the kit description and does not include a case because the user is expected to print their own case. The Budget kit exists to make it easier for those that prefer to 3d print their own handheld gaming unit to finish building a MyPi Portable Arcade.

The custom boards included in any MyPi kit.
The electronics are designed to be modular and slide together after the connectors are soldered in place.
From first attempt to last. It is amazing how tedious aligning and sizing can be.
