Anyone who enjoys building projects using the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC and also enjoys a little down time playing games, may like to try their hand at building the awesome gaming system device created by Thingyverse user Jooxoe3i.
The Raspberry Pi portable handheld uses a 5 inch touchscreen together with a few short cables to connect everything together and offers a very compact device that has been very well thought and constructed.
Components used in the build include :
• watterott 5″ touch display
• short hdmi and micro-usb cable to connect the display-driver with the raspberry (both trimmed to length)
• alps 4-way navigation switch
• colored switches for A B X and Y (reichelt.de : “DT 6 RT”, “DT 6 BL”, “DT 6 GE”, “DT 6 GN”)
• tiny tactile switches (reichelt.de : “Taster 9302”)
• pieces of ~1mm diameter wire for the shoulder-button and rear-flap axle
