UPDATE [5/18/15] - Four button version is now available!
This is PiGRRL, a DIY gameboy. Look at it next to the new Pocket Pi GRRL - It’s like half the size, but just as powerful, with all sorts of retro games.
This is a really fun project. You can learn about electronics and the raspberry pi by building one!
We have a full tutorial on how to build this project on the adafruit learning site, it’s super fun!
The Raspberry Pi A+ is small and adorable linux computer. The adafruit PiTFT is a 320x240 2.4’ display. This pi hat makes a great circuit sandwich!
For the controls we’re using tactile switches and a Perma-Proto wired to a Pi Cable - Much better than hacking apart your Super Nintendo controller, save it for another project!
To power this project, we're using the PowerBoost 1000c. It lets you charge while you’re playing - we’re calling it smart charging. 2000mAh of lithium gives you plenty of time to save that princess.
How about that audio? 8-Bit never sounded so good with this tiny class-D amplifier and a mini metal speaker.
Speaking of small, our 3D printed enclosure is even smaller than the original pocket gameboy. How do you like that BMO?
Check out the Adafruit tutorial. You can get all the parts to build this project on the shop at adafruit dot com.
