OK, you think you like the Legend of Zelda? You don’t. Not compared to this guy. His entire goddamn house is ocarina-operated now, and if he forgets to bring a plastic toy instrument with him he’s probably locked out. So suck on that, I guess.
Today is Pi Day and what better way to celebrate everyone’s favorite mathematical constant than by taking a look back at everyone’s favorite $35 hobbyist computer, the Raspberry Pi. Since the launch of the Raspberry Pi, I’ve written an absurd number of guides, blogs, and an already outdated book on the variety of…
With some 30 years of video gaming history now behind us, there’s never been a greater choice of retro games to dig back into, whether it’s on your smartphone or a classic console rebooted for modern times. For the more serious seekers of gaming nostalgia, there are plenty of hands-on projects you can attempt…
It’s no secret that turning a Raspberry Pi into a retro game console is hands-down the most popular, easy, and fun project you can do with a Pi. That initial guide is just the beginning though, and if you really want to get more out your little DIY console, you’ll want to dig in with some advanced tips.
The NES Classic Edition is almost perfect—short controller cords not withstanding—and if you can buy one, it’s one of our favorite gifts, especially if you don’t want to leave the house. But it only plays NES games, and 30 games at that. Plenty of people—us included—would love a tiny system to play our favorite Super…
Sure, YouTuber Hugo Doris could have 3D-printed some slick shell for his super-mini Super Nintendo, but when you’re making a one of a kind object, why not craft it by hand?
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.
Six years ago, Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton set out to reignite programming in schools with a cheap, compact computing platform. Despite targeting students, his foundation's $35 computer captured the imaginations of tinkers worldwide, resulting in overwhelming demand. Interest was so high, that distributors Premier…
