This is a case for a portable arcade based on the Raspberry Pi 3 named the MyPi. The MyPi was designed to use a 5 inch LCD to make viewing more comfortable and was designed with stereo sound to enjoy classic arcade music such as the music used in the Outrun arcade game.
Enjoy the ability to play retrogames on a large LCD anywhere, or use the composite output of the Raspberry Pi and play retrogames on an old CRT TV (LCD TVs work too) for that trip back in time to the 1980s or 1990s or even from the 1970’s.
Have you ever wondered what games were like on the Sinclair computers? Commodore computers? Maybe you’d prefer to experience those SNES games or Sega Genesis games again? There are more than 50 different emulators available for RetroPie – experience them all at your fingertips with the MyPi.
The 3d printable MyPi case and parts will need an electronics kit to complete the MyPi build.
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!
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
