Using a Raspberry Pi Pico as a GameBoy Cartridge @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
When classic gaming gearheads say “What have you got for me?” the Raspberry Pi Pico says “What do you want?” And if that gearhead wants to use a Raspberry Pi Pico as a cartridge for a GameBoy, that’s something the Pico can do. Here’s more from Raspberry Pi Pod:
LyneByLyne on Reddit has posted an intriguing video in which he uses a Raspberry Pi Pico as a cartridge for a GameBoy. It took a lot of trial-and-error to get it working, and the Pico is overclocked to 200mHz in order to get to the rate required by the GameBoy.
