Hello everyone! I decided as a first real project to take an ATGames Genesis mini and portabilize it into what is essentially a giant game boy case. to put it in perspective, the screen i'm using is 6.5 x 4.25 inches. the reason i chose this console and size is that little if any trimming of the console board will be required. So far, I've drawn up some basic designs in Fusion 360, and did some quick tests on the electronics. I know that this is not nearly as advanced as some of the other projects we will inevitably see, but I hope it turns out well regardless. attached is my first concept for the front of the console.

If you're not aware of it already, check this out for inspiration:


It'll be cool to see a Genesis version of a giant handheld. Good luck!

Update, my brain is kinda slow sometimes and I forgot about the entry fee and missed the deadline by a day so I guess I will make a new thread somewhere else at some point. Mods feel free to delete this.
