You can seemingly build just about anything with a Raspberry Pi, including your own miniature NES, and here’s a great deal on the newest Raspberry Pi 3. The kit comes with everything you need to get started, and will only set you back $57 with promo code D9UXNAIL.
If you’ve been intrigued by the idea of messing about with a $9 PC but had no idea what you’d do with it, Next Thing Co.’s PocketCHIP turns its tiny computer into a portable gaming machine, music editor and learning tool. It’s just full of ideas.
Back in 2000 Burger King made these cute little plastic Game Boy Color toys with analog games built-in. Now someone’s taken one of those toys, crammed a Raspberry Pi Zero into it and turned it into a working Game Boy Color (and more) emulator.
One of the best uses for the Raspberry Pi is to teach kids (and adults) basic programming skills. AppGameKit’s a bit of free software that does just that.
Meet the Gameboy Zero. It’s a classic Gameboy shell with a Raspberry Pi’s heart. But the mod isn’t purely cosmetic.
We’ve already seen a Raspberry Pi Zero get stuffed inside an Xbox controller, but if you’re looking for a project that’s a bit more retro, then a NES controller might be more up your alley.
The Raspberry Pi is easily one of our favorite DIY devices, and today a brand new model is available. The Raspberry Pi 2 features a quad core ARMv7 running at 900mHZ (that's about a 6x speed increase) and 1GB RAM (double the Model B+'s). It's still just $35. It can also now run Windows.
I realise that one reason for Minecraft's success is that it can run on older/weaker computers, but this is crazy.
