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.
