DIY Switch for Filthy Pirates

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

If you want to play retro games on the go, the Creoqode Lyra looks like a good option. But does it hold up to the Kickstarters claims?

 

Check out the Lyra: https://www.creoqode.com/lyra

 

Buy a cheap emulator

Switch in TI 83 calculator stealth build, when?

 

Just kidding. Thanks for the video, I love it when Alex shows up, and watching Linus struggle with tiny builds is strangely amusing. 😁

$250 is absolutely ludicrous. If you have a 3D printer and some patience, you can build your own for under $50.

 

 

At this price point I'd expect good build quality, either a higher-res or OLED display, dual speakers, and maybe more powerful hardware. $250 for what is basically a glorified Raspberry Pi and a screen is a big "fuck you" to everyone who buys that.

This shouldn't cost as much as an actual switch imo

I just made a account on LTT forum for this. You had to see this. There are these two model that are android based. One is the NOGA Pocky 5000 ( the more PSP like one ) and the other one is the NOGA Pocky 6000. I dont know if you guys over there know about the NOGA branding since its a low cost thing over here in Argentina.

There was a DIY project posted 4 years ago where somebody converted an old Game Boy into a retro console. This one was pretty janky but the community improved this a ton over the years by designing custom circuit boards and so on. The project is called Game Boy zero. You can find the original post here.

$270 USD for that, yikes.

 

You could do something similar with a RetroFlag GPi Case, RetroGameRestore's GPiMate adapter (which lets you replace the original Pi Zero cartridge with a Compute Module 3+) and a CM3+ Lite. Granted, the battery situation wouldn't be perfect since you would either have to use the three AA batteries or go for a custom solution, but it looks much cooler.

 

$70 for the case, $37 for a CM3+ Lite, $10 for a 64GB microSD card and $45 for the cartridge adapter shipped to the US. Pi stuff is fun, but it's usually expensive. ~$170 is still better than $270 for the Lyra, but that's still Switch Lite territory.
