This is a portable Wii I built that uses original Wii hardware, so that everything runs at full speed and there's no emulation.

The Wii was homebrewed with a program called Portablizemii, which is designed for making handhelds like this.

I named this portable The Louii after Louie from the Pikmin series.

The system gets 5 hours and 15 minutes of battery life when playing GameCube games. Let me know if you have any questions for me!

Thanks guys!
No D-Pad though. Otherwise, excellent job :)
Can u make one for meh?

I do take commissions but they're super expensive. I'm also tweaking the design to encorporate a more standard dpad, but I'm a fan of the Switch dpad for everything that isn't a 2D Mario game

This is awesome, really great design. Pikmin 2 is one of my all time favs.

I always wanted to ask, how does one design a case for something like this? How do you get it to fit everything precisely, i.e. screen, battery, buttons, etc.
What battery do you use?

How much would a commission cost with a standard shell?

I design and 3D print my own cases. I just start by measuring everything I've got, model those parts, and then model a case around those parts. Most people in this hobby use Fusion 360, as it's pretty easy to pick up. For the batteries, I use 18650s because they are hard to blow up, and thanks to the vape nation are cheap and last a long time.

If by standard shell you mean just the raw 3D print, $900. Parts are expensive and there are a lot of hours of work that go into it, even if I don't have to troubleshoot anything.
