Gamers and Raspberry Pi enthusiasts looking for a new project to keep them busy this weekend may be interested in a new project which has been published to the Adafruit website with instructions on how to build your very own Raspberry Pi powered NES Cart RetroPie Game Console.
Check out the video below to view the full build process which uses a Raspberry Pi zero together with a Joy Bonnet and a few other components to transform an old NES cartridge into a games console.
The elegant, iconic design of the NES cartridge tickles a nostalgic part of our brains. For many, its shape and feel MEANS 8-bit gaming to us. For this reason, what better object to repurpose as an all-in-one console case/controller grip for your own old school game machine?
Using the incredibly tiny, yet powerful Raspberry Pi Zero Linux computer running RetroPie, plus the wonderful Joy Bonnet for all of your button and thumbstick need, this project is as easy as, well, pie!
