Those of you that have access to a 3D printer, and a spare Raspberry Pi mini PC might be interested in the Raspberry Pi powered Mini Nintendo Entertainment System created by Thingiverse user T J Owens aka ‘ferreusveritas’.
The 3D printer files have been published to the Thingiverse and offer a great way to create your very own mini gaming or multimedia system based on the Nintendo NES system.
A miniature Nintendo Entertainment System(NES) case for raspberry pi B+ complete with working front power/reset buttons and power indicator LED.
I use PLA because of its dimensional stability and waffle smell. I finished the print by wet sanding and priming with a plastic compatible primer.. light wet sand again and spray paint. I normally use Krylon fusion for my projects but this time there were no colors close to NES grey available
Honest efforts were made to remain true to the original NES aspect ratios and appearance (only much smaller). This project is not for the faint of heart. Expect frustration. Some basic electronics knowledge and additional parts are necessary for complete design.
For best results the raspberry pi board will need to be physically altered.
