Raspberry Pi enthusiasts that have already got their hands on the new Raspberry Pi Zero mini PC may be interested in a new project that has been published over on the Thingyverse website that provides instructions and resources to create your very own Raspberry Pi Zero powered fully working NES controller.
So if you fancy creating your very own retro gaming console using software such as Retropie or similar jump over to the tomvdb Thingyverse web page for full details.
Its creator tomvdb explains :
I very much enjoy retro gaming and retropie has made retro gaming so much easier. This is my attempt at building a Raspberry PI Zero into a real NES Controller. The nes controller is wired onto the gpio and I’m using the gamecon_gpio_rpi software for interface to the NES emulator. I decided not to dremel the back part of the controller, but rather design and print a new one with proper pizero ports.
