This tutorial is perfect for anyone who loves video games, but something like the Raspberry Pi retro game emulator is a little too old school for you. With this, you will be able to play most modern games, but you will also need to have a computer that is powerful enough to run them. This setup is the closest thing you will get to an actual Raspberry Pi Steam box unless Valve ever releases an ARM version of Steam.
One of the most significant downsides to this tutorial is that you will need a Nvidia graphics card in your computer. Unfortunately, there isn’t an AMD equivalent of doing the same thing at the time of when I wrote this tutorial.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
