All black Freeplay Zero
#1
Been slowly working on my Freeplay Zero for months now, finally got it to a point where I am pleased with the build and ready to share with the internet.

Part List:

Raspberry Pi Zero W:
This replaces the Pi Zero (Non 'W' Variant) which I originally bought to complete this project. 
The Raspberry Pi used currently did not have a functional micro USB port, but the port is not usually used for this project so it was acquired cheaply.
Hot Tip:
A Pi Zero W with a broken micro USB port is far more convenient than a Pi Zero. 100% worth the extra.

RetroSix Housing:
As an inherently lazy human, I wanted to use the least amount of effort possible building this, whilst maintaining a quality build.
The housing used came from a new mould, with some sections already cut out (for a GBA IPS screen), making the cutting exercise easier.

IPS Screen Lens:
I opted for an IPS screen lens as the screen lens is just a fraction bigger, helping account for imperfections in the alignment of the screen.


P.S. Has anyone found a working solution or alternative for KODI on the FreePlay Zero?

I'll grab the images and add them here.  I had to crop them so they'd end up under 2MB each (forum limitation).  

How was it working with the Retrosix shell?  Did you have any problems there?  Do you have any photos of the insides showing how that went together?

Thanks for that!

I'll be tearing it down a bit to add some files the micro sd card anyway, so I'll get some photos of the housing while I'm at it.

P.S. It didn't drop straight in, but little trimming of the bottom and one side - the rest was still to be cut. Still easier though!
