Using an Old Nintendo Entertainment system case, produce a highly functional home router using a RaspberryPI 3!
Old Nintendo Case from a broken NES (remove all the old contents inside the case, leaving only the outside frame, the power / reset buttons and the controller connections)
Install inside the NES
Using a 3D printer print the Digole Display frame “NESPanel” in the /construction/display-frame/ folder. [if you don’t have a 3D printer you could delicately cut a square hole for the Digole Display with a Dremel tool]
Cut the following holes open in the back and side of the case to allow for the small fan to be fastened on the side and the power/ethernet and USB ethernet cables to get in through the back.
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.
