Pi-Pocket: the Raspberry Gameboy Pocket
Retro games are big business right now, and with the help of a Raspberry Pi module you can make your own Game Boy-style device, capable of running titles from the Game Boy, NES, Sega Master System, and Game Gear (basically everything available on RetroPie).
You’re going to have to do quite a bit of component-soldering to get a case and screen that do the Pi justice, but of course it’s also an opportunity to be creative and give your new portable console whatever design flourishes you see fit. All the components should cost you less than $150.
“We start with the Gameboy Pocket, one of the greatest hand-helds that Nintnedo has ever produced has ever produced featuring a slim design and an exceptionally comfortable button layout. Having owned at one point each of the original Gameboy systems except for.. Damn you Gameboy Micro and Gameboy Light for being too elusive or otherwise too expensive.. Wait a moment.. I know! What if we take a Raspberry Pi, all the games you can shake a stick at, and the color backlit screen Nintendo teased us with for years? Without further ado, lets begin!”
All you need to know is available at the inventor’s website or in the demonstrative video below.
