In this project we’re building a handheld gaming console! This DIY gadget has 12 buttons, an analog joystick, stereo speakers and a 5” HDMI display. We’re using the Raspberry Pi A+ and RetroPie image. We call it…. Super Game Pi!
Bigger than our DIY GameBoy, this project has support for way more games, a bigger screen, sound and all ze buttons!
To make your own Super Game Pi, you’ll have to 3D print the enclosure, hack an SNES controller and solder electronics.
You can pick the Raspberry Pi A+ and all the parts to build this project from Adafruit. We’ll need some hand tools and access to a 3D Printer.
- Raspberry Pi A+
- True 5” HDMI Display w/ TFP401 Display Driver
- Analog joystick w/ Cupcade Adapter + 6 Buttons
- 66000mAh Lithium Ion Battery
- Powerboost500 Charger
- Stereo Audio
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
