Calling all makers! Do you like to play with electronics? Do you have access to a 3D printer? If so, you can make your very own DIY handheld gaming device, thanks to the mad geniuses at Adafruit.
The Game Girl (also known as the PiGRRL) is, in essence, a Raspberry Pi Linux computer in Game Boy-style housing, made with some scavenged components from a SNES controller. Though an 8-bit NES emulator is the obvious software choice here, you can run whatever you fancy on it. Have a look at the video below for an overview of the project, or head to Adafruit for detailed instructions. Ps 7000 Game Console
I should also mention that this project was created in celebration of the Game Boy’s 25th anniversary. I feel old.
