Hey all, Project Scout creator here. I just saw this thread and wanted to say hello! Please let me know if you have any Scout related questions. :)

Edit : I also wanted to mention that Scout has Thunderbolt 3, and can enable external graphics. Here is a little testing I've been doing for a potential charging dock.

Wrote an article about it on Gizchina.com, looking forward to seeing more from your project!

Keep up the great work, itís very impressive.
One suggestion is maybe try to pick a bigger screen to reduce the borders , it would look much sleeker and who doesn't like a bigger screen!

It looks like a great little device.  You should be proud.  It looks like you are 3D printing some of the parts.  What do you use as a designer?  I was trying to design a controller extension for my Switch but I hate the stuff that came with my 3D printer.  I have an XYZPrinting Pro.  Big sucker that holds my PS4 TV mostly.

Thanks! I designed the enclosure in Fusion 360 and printed it on my Ultimaker 3 Extended. Fusion 360 is pretty good once you get used to it. The source control makes it easy to jump around on different computers and share files. I definitely recommend it!

I read it and it was a very humbling experience! It is a strange feeling seeing all of the positive responses to the project. The internet is not always a positive place, but when it is it sure feels great. :)

Thank you! There are a couple other options for screen that I'm still researching, but there aren't a ton of low-cost options in this display size. I'll keep it in mind though, for sure.

Nothing big, at the moment because in a couple weeks I'm going to move across the country.  :P

I'm currently working on redesigning Scout to add some features and make it easier/cheaper to make. I'm also trying to slim the design out a little more and reduce the weight.

With any luck there will be more to share soon after the new year.
