Worlds smallest portable pi? Complete! #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Johnny Parks aka “FrostedFires” has completed what he believes may be the
world’s smallest portable pi-based game emulator:

It’s a long video but here are some highlights if you don’t have time for the whole video:
Quake 3 – 9:42
Mario Kart – 12:43
1080P Movie Playing 16:33

Here’s a link to the worklog.

Specifications:

  • Odroid W (Raspberry pi clone)
  • 1300mah battery (cell phone battery [tiny])
  • Wifi Module (I said Bluetooth in the video but meant Wifi)
  • Usb hub (4 usb ports – 1 will be used for wifi internally, 1 is wired to the Teensy 3.1, so 2 external)
  • HDMI port (great for movie player on the big screen at home)
  • Mono speaker hooked to an amp with digital volume (tact switches to change volume)
  • 3.5in screen! (Larger than the original GBA SP screen)
  • Directional Pad, A, B, X, Y, L, R, Start, Select + Joystick and a misc button.

L x W x H = (8.1cm X 8.9cm X 2.6cm)

I put a lot of blood sweat and tears into this device but it’s worth it in the end.
