Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

Good luck with this, it is the first one I have seen that claims to handle audio for less than $100. One that uses an actual hdmi connection and has a speaker or 2 in it and runs off 5v would be amazing, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that.

Re: Custom Handheld Arcade console with Raspberry Pi3

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

I bought this display that comes with lots of parts in it ready for use, even sound.. I'll test it the next days to see if I can get it fit inside the gameboy case. http://m.ebay.com/itm/3-5-quot-TFT-LED-Portable-Test-Monitor-CCTV-Camera-Security-Audio-Video-Tester-J5J8-/291709734092?txnId=13134418...

Re: Custom Handheld Arcade console with Raspberry Pi3

Yes, it's the Smakn board from amazon. These boards are amazing. I got two but I'll buy more for my other battery powered projects perhaps I'll use it on my gameboy zero project as well if I can make it fit.

Thanks

Re: Custom Handheld Arcade console with Raspberry Pi3

Wow, nice project! Wait... is this LCD Screen showing the battery level? Yes, it's the battery charger/booster/level/On-Off all in one device, I was surprised as well how it worked. The cool blue LCD shows battery percentage, 5 volt charges 1/2.1 amp, and micro USB charging as (input). When chargin...
