Hi, just wondering if it's possible to make your own handheld console? I don't mean anything that uses a Raspberry Pi, but something that I can install actually Ram Cards on. Like at least 8Gb. I have some rough knowledge of sodering. I don't know programing and I don't plan to make an emulator, but I may know a few people who may be able to help me. I doubt they will do more than 10% of the work for without a deposit or something like that. To be short I'm a college student, I wish to do thi primarily as a personal project to see if it can be done.
I don't personally care for making it as thin as a 3DS. Im just looking looking for something portable enough to be considered handheld with the ability for primarily external storage of save files and internal storage of of game files if that makes sense? Like a psp or ps vita. Probably closer to the vita.
