That looks incredibly beautiful. If you have some thin plastic sheeting, I would recommend making an internal bezel to place between your case and screen to hide the screen's trim. I think a narrow black trim would look nice and not too out of place since the screen itself has the narrowest of a black border.
Thank you both! I want to do something to hide it and I'm considering my options. I removed the bezel and spray painted it black for the prototype, but I can't do that this time for reasons.You could also just color on it with some black sharpie or paint, just so it doesn't stick out when the display is off. This is gonna be cool when it's done!
Would you consider making a guide on Wiimote trimming? It would be really cool to have a list of what's important and what's not, as well as how to perform the necessary relocations.I tried to trim the Wii remote in my last portable, but it still ended up being pretty big. I wanted to figure out how to make it as small as possible this time, so I took sandpaper to one of my 4-layer boards and made scans of all the layers.

With those scans I found out how to bypass the voltage regulator that takes the battery input and converts it to 3.3V. I was able to cut it down to not much more than the main IC. This required that I relocate the I2C EEPROM and the accelerometer (but it doesn't need the accelerometer to function).

I'd love to contribute to some kind of guide, but I don't know how helpful it would be. Part of the trouble with making a Wii remote trimming guide is that there are countless revisions of the Wii remote and I only know how to trim this one specific board.Would you consider making a guide on Wiimote trimming?
