Below is a series of build photos and videos! I hope you enjoy!

I used Fusion 360 to model all of the electronics components. Then using the components geometries, I created the television parts.

Here you can see the rough electronic models. I also started forming the base of the tv.

Eventually, I finished modeling the front, upper body, base, knob, handle, antenna holder, and antennas.

I then used an Ultimaker 2 to print out all of my tv model parts.

To prep the parts, I sanded them smooth.

I then coated each part with filler and primer, with sanding in between coats.

After the prep work I painted each part, for two tone televisions.

Morgan Strickland decided the color palette for each television.

Now after all of the tvs are painted, it was time for the electronics.

I chose most of my components early on, which did end up limiting what I could do code wise.

Components are a 3.5" tft screen, ESP32, 2600mAh battery, on/off switch, lip charging circuit, and encoder. I grabbed most of the electronics from adafruit.

Time to get it all soldered up. I was connecting the encoder and power to the esp here.

Attached the screen!
