Play classic games on a Raspberry Pi in a Game Boy case


After completing the assembly process and some initial tests, we are very enthusiastic about the results. It is a lot of fun to play with the ultimate retro game console. Even the rebuild was fun, and it was a good learning experience. The learning curve could be steep for readers who are dealing with soldering irons and a multimeter for the first time, but it is manageable. We had to develop new skills as part of this project, which made us even more satisfied with the success we achieved.

In conclusion, we extend a hearty thank you to Microbyter, who thought of the idea and provided us with incentive and valuable tips on the rebuild in his blog. Now it's your turn. We would be glad to hear about experiences our readers have in making a Rasp Pi Game Boy.
