Hey everyone,

i've been working on this for a few weeks but it is finally coming to a point where I would like to start sharing the progress. See the video below. Basically I would like to make something similar to the nintendo switch with the LattePanda Alpha. Let me know what you think so far.

Re-printed the screen part of the case. Have not secured the metal joycon brackets to the case yet.
