Raspberry Pi Zero Mod Turns Tiny NES Christmas Ornament Into Functional Game Console #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
The NES Christmas ornament was cute enough on its own. A reddit user took it a step further by adding functionality to the figurine! From Hot Hardware:
Either way, you work with what you got, and what RETROCUTION had was a tiny ornament, a Raspberry Pi Zero, and a neat idea. The modded ornament is connected to a CRT “prison TV” manufactured in February 2008 by a company called KTF (model number 13CLR-AT). As for the controls, the user says they are using a DualShock 4 controller via Bluetooth.
