RetroPie: Build a retro gaming arcade console with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Via Joël Kempf on wikimal.

This is not a piece of art, even not an invention, but a pretext to play a lot with electronics, programming, and laser cutting of course!

This work is based on the work of petRockBlock exposed on his blog.

The idea is to use a Raspberry Pi for emulating old arcade cabinet games – do you remember “Insert coins”? – but with some constraints:

  • all components assembled in a single and portable box (ok, only a power cord)
  • easy to use (a child can do it – and he will!), just a push-button for turning on and off
  • the minimum required to play: 3 action buttons and a joystick
  • only antiques from the 80s, no more

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
