News $150 Handheld MiSTer With AMOLED Screen Starts To Take Shape

Taki Udon has shared some more information about the upcoming handheld MiSTer.

"I made two designs for the AMOLED MiSTer handheld," he said on Twitter recently.

"Plan A was the original version I created at the same time as the consoles. After I handed off the 2D design, the 3D model did not meet my expectations. It went through some revisions before I decided to bring Plan A back to 2D. Even though the 2D looked good, I wasn't sure if it could ever work in 3D, so I made a completely different 2D design, and then I used that to make a physical clay model to verify the ergonomics and controls. I then handed off Plans A & B for 3D modeling a few weeks ago. Today, I got the 3D model of Plan B, and even though it needs some minor changes, it looks awesome. If the redesigned Plan A doesn't come back swinging in 3D, this is a good alternative."

A day later, he shared teasers for both of the 3D models. Version B "can be easily adapted to mirror retro esthetics from older systems that it can run," says Taki Udon, sharing some PS1, SNES, NES and Mega Drive examples:
