Have you ever wanted to play somme classic games when eating? Maybe not, but if you did, this is the project for you! The GameBoy emulator uses RetroPie on a Raspberry Pi Zero W. There is a battery pack with 2500mAh, which could squeeze out around 20 hours of battery life! There is a 4.3-inch screen for displaying the games, not the biggest, but screens can get expensive! Not only that, there are 2 SNES controllers for multiplayer gameplay! And, most importantly, you can run any retro game your heart desires(not included in tutorial, the retropie documentation tells you how to do it just fine… https://retropie.org.uk/docs/ )!!! Most of the parts are from Adafruit, including the lunchbox. The project is designed around that lunchbox, but I will provide the Tinkercad link if you would like to edit my design to accommodate for your design. I spent a good amount of time on this project, so I hope you enjoy it!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
