Hacker Drew Wallace enjoyed handheld gaming growing up, eventually graduating to consoles, then PC gaming, but never really got over the cool factor of portable systems. After trying a few streaming options, he settled on Parsec, which can stream games from a PC to other devices, including the Raspberry Pi.
This, of course, opens up a whole world of mobile gaming possibilities, and after seeing the Nintendo Switch’s split Joy-Con controllers for sale, he built a system to take advantage of their split design. The resulting “SwitchBerry” resembles a Nintendo Switch, but instead contains a Raspberry Pi and uses a 7” Pi touchscreen for a display. It’s completely wireless, running off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and powered by a 3.7V 4400mAh LiPo battery and an Adafruit Powerbost 1000C so you can take it anywhere.
