This project was to create a portable gaming system that could also double as a portable computer. Above shows the 3D model (Rev 3) I made on Autodesk Inventor. Waiting on final prints, More coming August 2017. This project was to create a portable gaming system that could also double as a portable computer. The goal was to create a console that was functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. I use what I learned with 3D modeling to make professional looking cases to house my circuits. Buttons were constructed using tactile components behind a stripped façade.
Inside a Raspberry Pi 3 is running Retropie. This interfaces with the 7-inch touch screen on the front to display the GUI. Buttons are wired to a teensy 2.0+ . Thermals are controlled by bringing air in through an intake located on the back. The air is directed past heat sinks on the processor into the duct and out the top.
