This Portable Retro Game Console is a One-Thumb Entertainment System #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
This project brings nothing but smiles – from the handheld video camera (camcorder) reminiscent design to the one click gaming, yes! From gocivici on Instructables:
OTES (One-Thumb Entertainment System) is a Raspberry Pi powered, retro-inspired portable CTR Game Console which has only one button. It’s running PICO-8, a fantasy console. And It’s based on a stand-alone cartridge firmware meaning that it will boot directly to the game on the SD card like a GameBoy. So SD cards can be used as cartridges.
