The shoulder buttons use the original actions from the Wii classic controller, so the L/R have a spring and conductive pad, and the center two use tactile switches.
The joystick is a 3DS slider and I'm using one of Kite's boards with a CM3
Still working on the fix for that gap you can see in the middle but I need to wait until school starts back up to use their printers :D

Oh and a thanks/shout out to
Kite for the Circuit Sword/kit
YaYa for the custom Gorilla Glass screen cover
and Dextech for the lipo battery

Yeah I used Shapeways. It is the SLS Nylon. There are some brackets inside that I printed at my school's fab lab in PLA

I never been a fan of the Wii.. but i must say that i LOVE IT :D
Always great to se someone design something new from ground up.. i looks more comfortable/ergonomically than a regular dmg

Awesome! Now if we could get these injection molded and produced you might really be on to something here! Nice work!

I like it much. Great work. A little bit like the RS-90, but way better :)

I love the design.
Personally, I would give the outside of the case a sanding to smooth it off, it looks a bit rough in the photos.

But the way you have done the shoulder buttons. I love it.
