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.

2020-11-07 09:11:27 I saw your pronect and I am trying to do something similar.

Did you manage to power and charge the joycons directly from your handeld or do they require another form of charging ?

2019-09-05 03:31:02 I think this is a neat idea. The case, and the handheld. ETA Prime did something similar, but withoneof these, a small touchscreen, and a telescoping controller. https://youtu.be/bGevtarLMKk

I got into this kind of stuff after learning about the GPD Win computers. I’ve been looking for s cheaper alternatives to gaming laptops. I think being able to switch from keyboard and mouse, console style gaming, and then handheld/tablet has potential. I’m definitely thinking of getting one.

Hi Ray

I used the 7” touch display that came with the LattePanda Alpha bundle.
