It’s time to reveal my project for the build-off. For this competition I’ll be building a Raspberry Pi “portable” into a working electric guitar.
In order to fit the Game Boy theme, I’ll be tossing out the stock guitar body and building a new body from scratch that will resemble a DMG. Additionally, the Pi will be running RetroPie with GB, GBC, and GBA games. I will probably include NES games as well (maybe Turbografx too?) but not SNES games as adding X and Y buttons will throw off the DMG look. I’ll include L and R because they’ll be hidden on the back of the guitar body.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
