ATTENTION: THERE IS A NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION OF THIS DESIGN CALLED THE PORTABERRY PI ULTRA. IT CAN BE FOUND HERE. IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING BUILDING A PORTABERRY PI PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEW DESIGN BECAUSE IT IS MORE UP TO DATE WITH CURRENT PRODUCTS AND WILL RECEIVE MORE OF MY SUPPORT GOING FORWARD. THANK YOU.
(Note: User BigLazyB has put together an excellent set of instructions/schematic for this project which can be found under the files page of his remix found HERE)
Presenting the PortaBerry Pi! A Raspberry Pi powered portable emulation machine. Now you can take your retro gaming anywhere you go (so long as you have a pouch to carry this little Beast :P).
The specs are as follows:
Processor: 512 Mb Raspberry Pi Model B
Display: 4.5" TFT Monitor
Battery: 9.6v NiMh Pack
Controls: Custom, running on Teensy 2.0 (Joystick, four action buttons, start/select, and two shoulder buttons)
Sound: 2 Mini 8 Ohm speakers running mono, or a stereo 3.5mm headphone jack
Operating system: RetroPie
Bill of material can be found HERE
Here is a nice album full of detail shots. THIS album offers nice detail shots of the interior. A much larger construction album as well as a work in progress bill of materials can be found under 'instructions'. My submission here is currently a work in progress and I hope to finish the bill of material as well as offer a schematic very soon. As I stated in the instructions there was a lot of frustration involved in this project that pictures and spread sheets can't communicate. My advice would be to use what I have uploaded as inspiration for a project of your own. I hope you enjoy :)
EDIT: A video of the unit in action can be found HERE
P.S. I would like to give a nice shout out to Ben Heck. If you have a chance look him up on Youtube. His portable raspberry pi project (featured on this very SITE) was the inspiration for my project.
