It is finally done, the Raspberry Pi (with no HDMI) portable MAME emulator based on the Raspberry Pi A+! Ben and Felix have put the finishing touches to the portable gaming device with the use of laser cutting and 3D printing. With 8 GPIO left though, Felix decides that it’s best to do a low-level input for the buttons and directional pad to control the device. If you want to build one yourself, we’ve got the code and build files linked on the element14 Community! What would you do differently? Have you made a Raspberry Pi Portable? Let the team know on the element14 Community.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
