Raspberry Pi enthusiasts or gamers looking to learn a little more about the awesome mini PC, may be interested in the POCO Pocket Raspberry Pi gaming kit which is now available to preorder with delivery expected to take place in 4 to 6 weeks.
“Two part body construction, snap fit kit is easy to assemble in around 30 minutes (no soldering required) and includes everything needed to build a pocket computer straight out of the box. E.g a pre-soldered Raspberry Pi zero W, TFT display with touch, Daughterboard PCB, action cam, speaker, rechargeable battery, silicone keypads, micro SD card, stylus, body casing, screws & allen key. POCO is crammed to the max with high technology that can be shoe horned inside its compact body. Learn how a micro computer works on the inside and outside (simple instruction manual included).”
“Download a free emulator such as RetroPie to turn the POCO into a retro gaming machine which can emulate 50+ classic game consoles with thousands of games available. Alternatively use PICO-8, a fantasy console for making, sharing and playing tiny native games and other computer programs. “
