I finished my own PiiWii pocket designed and laser cut by @Shank. It's so damn tiny and feels good in the hands while playing, I love it. Now I can say I have built the world's smallest Wii portable (as of today ;)) Even though it is only a hair smaller than the Wiiboy, this one was surely the more difficult build.

I tried to make it a faithful build besides screwing up the slider caps so kept them stock 3DS caps.
Pretty standard Wii portable specs:
6800mah lithium ion batteries
3DS sliders
GC+ (duh)
Double-tact modded PS2 R1 shoulder buttons
Two IR leds underneath screen. The leds are flat and are flush with the case.
Low battery indicator
HQ audio/headphone jack from the amazing audio amp designed and built by @JacksonS
3.5" screen
3-way on/off switch for charge or play

It's not smaller than shank's, right? Same case? Awesome, regardless. Wish I had the skill to make one of these.

This is freaking amazing. YOU ARE A GOD.
Thank you but @Shank is the real mastermind of the portable here. The placement for everything is literally perfect.

Same case :) I just had to build my own.

Headphone jack mayhaps? Great job regardless :P
I believe it was meant for a wall power jack for a wiitard proof play and charge solution. I have a bunch of those 3-way switches so I used that instead. The headphone jack is on the front side, didn't take a good picture of it.
