Coming Soon – Pocket PiGRRL Pack Build your own Pi Game Emulator! – CASE NOT INCLUDED


For all those who feared their Game Boy days would be but a memory, worry no more! The Game Boy may be dead, but with this pack you’ll have a chance to revive it in style. We’ve collected all the right parts so you can assemble the guts of your very own DIY GameGRRL – a portable Raspberry Pi running MAME, NES, Atari2600 and other fine emulators (via RetroPie/EmulationStation)

It’s called the Pocket PiGRRL and it’s powered by a Raspberry Pi Model A+ and a PiTFT display.  You’ll have to do all the assembly and installation yourself to get gaming, but our learn guide will help you get through the process.

The Pocket PiGRRL Pack has just about everything you need to make this project EXCEPT the case. You will need to 3D print your own case – but check out our 3D printing guide for the pack so you or your friend can 3D print an enclosure. You will also need to solder together the parts so many hand tools and other small parts such as screws or blue tack are required. Please read through the tutorial so you can see what else is needed to complete this project.

Please note: this is a medium-difficulty project that uses many Maker skills such as soldering, 3D printing, Dremeling, and installing Linux!
