Power-up your TV with a Pimoroni Picade Console Controller! It’s a compact, Raspberry Pi-powered retro games machine with authentic arcade controls that plugs right into your TV, monitor, or other HDMI display. It’s a stylish, retro, and fun arcade controller for your Raspberry Pi!
Picade Console is fight stick-style arcade console that riffs off the Pimoroni Picade with the same retro feel, same joystick and buttons, dedicated power button, and driven by the same powerful combo of the Raspberry Pi and Picade X HAT. It’s beautifully packaged, comes with stickers and a neon-infused A3 Picade Console poster, and full assembly instructions.
The Picade Console Controller comes in kit form for you to build at home. All parts, panels, and components are included – you just need to supply the Raspberry Pi, power supply, SD card and HDMI cable! You’ll need latest Raspberry Pi 4 as the extra processing power gives great performance in many emulators – any memory amount will work, even the 1G version.
Please note:Raspberry Pi 4, Power supply, SD card, and HDMI cable are not included. So be sure to also pick up:
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
