Yet Another RetroPie Gameboy with Pi Zero by @bricotienda #3DPrinting #RaspberryPi

Oscar Gonzalez shared his RetroPie Gameboy project on Thingiverse and make a video about it on his YouTube Channel.

The video is in español, so you may or may not be able to fully follow along 😉 (You can optionally enable Closed-Captions and select english in the translator under the settings cog wheel icon – I didn’t now about it either!) Still, very entertaining to watch Oscar build it!

The main components Oscar used are a Raspberry Pi Zero, a whopping 7″ LCD IPS (1280×800), an Adafruit Powerboost 500C, a 2000mAh lipo battery, DC 4-25V converter, an Adafruit stereo amplifier (TPA2016), two tiny speakers and a perfboard for the gamepad. Oscar hacked apart an SNES controller and repurposed the button caps and used 6mm tactile switches (the awful “clicky” ones 🙂

To get I2S audio from the Pi Zero, he put together SMD resistors, some capacitors and followed the Adafruit learning guide for wiring diagram and reference.

The IPS display seems to be composite, but looks pretty good!

The build looks very thin, compared so some of the other builds I’ve seen. Very good wire management helps keep that possible 🙂

Awesome job, Oscar!

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
