This Instructables show how to build a Breadboard RetroPie, no soldering, no 3D printer, no Laser cutter required.
Building a game machine is a very good project to initial child studying electronics. However, most RetroPie projects built by adult, the main reason is building it require too many advance skills at the same time, soldering, 3D printing, or Laser cutting, metal case patching…
This project aims to make it simple, all things built on the breadboard, the first tools you should know while studying electronics.
The most beauty thing using breadboard is most things can be reused. When you want to build the next project you can unplug and reuse the components and also reuse the breadboard itself!
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!
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.
