First thing here I’ll be putting links to the components I got for my build as reference I didn’t buy any of mine from those sellers cause I bought all from local sellers in my country.
1. Raspberry Pi: As I said in the Intro this is system works with RetroPie so you would need a Raspberry Pi, I used the latest Pi 3 B+ but I think you can use version 2 also. The only thing here is if you go with a Pi Zero games you can play are a lot less and the build may change in some parts (since I have extended the Pi IO like Audio, USBs, HDMI and Power button) so check the schematics picture to see if it make sense for you.
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.
