Nintimdo RP Project – Homemade Switch that Plays the Classics #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Diyswitch feat

Tired of waiting for the switch to support the Nintendo back catalog? Check out the Nintimdo shared on Hackaday. An amazing amount of care and craftsmanship went into this Raspberry Pi emulator.

[Tim] has posted a fascinating time-lapse video of building the NinTIMdo RP on YouTube that covers every step of the process. It starts with a look at the 3D model he created in Autodesk Inventor, and then goes right into the post-printing prep work where he cleans up the printed holes with a Dremel and installs brass threaded inserts for strength. The bulk of the video shows the insane amount of hardware he managed to pack inside the case, a true testament to how much thought was put into the design.

For the software side, the Raspberry Pi is running the ever popular RetroPie along with the very slick EmulationStation front-end. There’s also a Teensy microcontroller on board that handles the low-level functions such as controlling volume, updating the LED display, and mapping the physical buttons to a USB HID device the Raspberry Pi can understand.
