R-Kade zGO + Raspberry Pi Zero + LCD = Portable Gaming System

Similar projects worth following
R-Kade zGO is a portable video gaming system using a Raspberry Pi Zero.

It's a companion or rather bigger brother to my other RPi Zero project: R-Kade Zero

The pictures are of the prototype made from a R-Kade Zero controller board, RPi Zero, 2.4" LCD module and a laser cut case.

Enjoy this project?

This is basically a copy of your other project: why not continue it there?

Thanks for the comment and support.

I wouldn't call it a copy, more like a derived work. As I say in the introduction, its a bigger brother to R-Kade Zero. The prototype uses the same PCB from R-Kade Zero but the plan is to design a brand new bigger PCB with controls, RPi Zero, LCD module and battery circuit.

No problem!

I look forward to seeing how this develops; once it has the battery circuit this thing is going to be so versatile.

Is the screen connected via i2c mate? And are you planning on making the battery circuit modular too? It would be great - it can be swapped for bigger, better battery parts when necessary or even removed completely when not being used with the screen and being used with a TV.
