Ports at back will offer flexible power switching, and integrated voltmeter.</p> <p>The case is partly 3d printed, and partly made from acrylic sheet, it will be sanded and<br /> sprayed a suitable colour and adorned with a pico8 logo.</p> <p>I may also have a hardware cartridge slot, for pico8 cartridges(with SD cards in them)</p> <p>Progress so far:<br /> Pi image complete, with working screen and auto boot into Pico8<br /> Base acrylic sheet is all cut read to assemble,<br /> all parts are ready to go.<br /> I also intend to have a concave screen and have built a mould to form the plastic.</p> <p>If anyone is interested I can provide more details as the project progresses.</p> Sun, 01 May 2016 13:58:32 UTC
