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
