Raspcade: NES Cartridge Edition

This is my first post, but I hope you all enjoy. First, I wanted to provide a little background to me. I'm Wes and I'm behind Raspberry Coulis. I've been a regular contributor to The MagPi Magazine over the last year, including my documented Raspcade build where I designed my own arcade cabinet that is free to download and build for anybody looking to try their own.
Anyway, I recently saw this build where a Pi Zero was housed inside an old NES cartridge, and I wanted to give it a go myself. It's nothing ground-breaking, but I thought I would share anyway.
For my build, I used an epoxy glue to bond the leads to the cartridge and I attached an external activity LED using the Adafruit LED sequin, because it has the resistor built-in for convenience.
I then created my own label using a template I found online, and I created my own splash screen to complete the look:
To finish this, I've bought the 8bitdo NES30 controller which I will pair via Bluetooth. This gives me a completely portable RetroPie gaming system and I thought I'd share!
