Streaming handheld gaming machine using a Raspberry Pi and Switch controllers

Drew Wallace wanted a handheld gaming device that could stream games from a gaming PC, but that was totally portable. For this, he’s used a Raspberry Pi loaded with streaming software Parsec and added a Pi touchscreen, LiPo battery and an Adafruit Powerboost 1000C. Onto the sides, he added the Switch’s split JoyCon controllers and then surrounded everything with two 3D printed case parts. You can read a complete breakdown of what to do to create your own on GitHub and see more photos of the finished console here. See a video of it in action below:
