Pi-Boy Combines A Raspberry Pi With A Gameboy Console @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Anton MacArthur from
Retro Game Punk built a handheld console with a Raspberry Pi and called it the “Pi-Boy”.
This is not so much a build log as it is a retrospective of building the Pi-Boy. I shall describe the challenges I faced, the solutions I used and what I will do to improve in later revisions.
Challenge – Build a handheld console based on the Raspberry Pi.
Parts available; 3″ LCD screen [12v]
Pile of random cables/wire
USB SNES controller
32GB SD Memory Card
Intended outcomes; Handheld
No keyboard required to standard use
Portable [only 1 mains power cable]
