    I switched to the newer version of 3DS joysticks so I could solder to the through holes without removing it from the case. You can see I also had to tilt the accelerometer (next to the Wii remote) at an awkward angle because it was calibrated wrong for some reason...

    It's done :).

    Final dimensions are 178mm x 96mm x 30mm.

    I plan to make a gameplay video sometime soon to try to show off everything it can do. I'm excited!

    Dang. This is great.

    What's the difference between the new and old 3DS sliders?

    The new ones have through holes that you can solder to from the back. See here:

    The casework finish looks flawless, I can't believe how clean it looks and the internals are inspiring. Really great job, Jackson.

    Valid question :D. Here's a list of what the new one contains that the old one did not:
    • An internal screen that utilizes progressive HDMI video, not interlaced composite video
    • Fully digital video (no component to HDMI converters involved)
    • A touch panel
    • Seamless play and charge with one DC power supply, no smart charger needed
    • The internal flash drive is accessible through a mini USB port
    • A full-size USB port for any extra peripherals
    • Charge and power indicator LEDs with nice LED diffusers
    • A button for selecting the internal controller, not a switch
    • The left joystick can act as the D-pad when you're using the sideways Wii remote controller
    • A power button instead of a power switch
    • IR LEDs on the front
    • The capability to turn off the system by pressing the power button on an external Wii remote
    • A cooling system that actually works
    And of course the inside is a lot cleaner and filled with fewer wires this time.

    Thanks :D. I'm sure I'll be saying the same thing about your GS2 when it's done.

    also, is the HDMI one of those touchscreen HDMI? or is it just a digitizer the size of your screen?

    It's a normal screen with a touch panel glued on. I am interfacing with the touch panel directly, so it has nothing to do with HDMI.

    The only thing that is powered when the system is off is the microcontroller that controls power cycling. There is a separate idle 3.3V line for that, much like the original Wii has.

    Yes, that works. Plug it into a TV and it basically becomes a regular Wii console with batteries.

    Incredible. Can you elaborate on the digital HDMI? Is there a link or guide on that? Great job man, love your work.
