I love it. If I knew anything about 3D printing, I'd suggest a 3D printed case.
How much does it weigh?
How long do you get out of the battery?

I could have gone with a 3d printed case, but the reason I went with acrylic is the quality. Acrylic may be hard to work with, and take a lot longer, but it's very rigid and has a beautiful finish. 3d printed items have always seemed lumpy and soft to me.
I haven't done much testing yet on battery life with this specific battery, but my guess based on tests I've done with similar batteries would be approx. 2.5 hrs.
It weighs about 647g or 22.8 ounces

Half a kilo.
I can handle that. Going to build one for my boy, I'll need to shave off some weight wherever I can. Plus, anything mechanical is way beyond me. The electronics and software is nothing at all.
I'll go for the 3D, unless I can find a case ready made online.
Still, nice one. I'll start getting all my parts together and post it all up here.

There is a case, a few of them, on Thingiverse. I printed a couple of them out and started to round up all the guts. I haven't quite had time to put it all together.
I absolutely love the acrylic case though! So well done. @mud2005 What do you use to assemble the pieces, what kind of cement?

needs ventilation, the fumes are strong, sets very fast, cures very strong, but takes a while to fully cure

That looks amazing you did excellent work. I like the job you did on the hand wiring too, kinda reminds me of the diy Arduboy i built.

Excellent work on the build. Very polished and a lovely finish. The fact you used acrylic just adds to the quality.
I keep looking at handhelds, I want one but don't really have the time to attempt making my own. I thought about the Retroflag Gpi case for simplicity but I want something punchier than the Pi Zero. I will see how well received the new Odroid Go Advance is and maybe consider that. Ideally I want something which can run RetroPie though!

I know, I know, this thing is awesome. I have seen it. I think my brother is going to get one. I kind of want something which can emulate multiple systems though and i'm pretty familiar with Retropie, so would love to see that running on a handheld.
edit: when I mean multiple systems, I mean 16-bit as well :)

@mitu The display is nice, but we can build better here for the price.
