Read All The Retro Pie community is huge and a big part of that is the fact that you can use the hardware for nearly anything you can think up. Lots of new open and moddable systems have been popping up and many Retro Pie builds feature making your own handheld but nothing makes it easy. Intro the new GameShell Kickstarter that aims to ship a modular portable hackable Linux handheld. It's seriously focused on gaming but it's not limited to that and since it runs Linux you can hack it to do whatever you want.
Many Kickstarter projects don't do well and hardware projects doubly so. I hope this takes off but there is an inherent amount of risk here but I wish GameShell well because if it can ship this system I think it would be pretty special.
"GameShell is the world's first modular, portable game console with a GNU/LINUX embedded operating system. It allows you to play thousands of classic games from Atari, GB, GBA, NES, SNES and many of history’s greatest consoles.
GameShell uses the powerful LINUX operating system and every game published on it will be free, open-source and modifiable. We have included two classic games - Cave Story and DOOM1 in GameShell and there will be more free games included in future."
