Smallest this week anyway, you just watch. Standing just 67.2 millimeters tall, this tiny arcade machine is built around a Raspberry Pi Zero, a color OLED display from Adafruit and even an audio amplifier. It’s loaded up with RetroPie and a little bit of custom code to make these classic games playable…or at least recognizable…on the tiny 1″ screen.
This was done on a lark and as such the guide lacks the polish of other projects like the PiGRRL Zero. There might be some insights and good tidbits for your own Raspberry Pi projects though.
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 code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
