saw this video on facebork, they stuck a new screen and a raspberry pi zero in an old Nintendo gameboy... and loaded it with arcade emulator... to top it off, they modified an old gameboy cartridge to be the SD/microSD converter and wired the pi's sd card to the cartridge slot... really nicely done and well inspired project!
I think most of the work is sourcing the correct parts, then it really is some basic wiring imho, and a little software fiddling.While it is a pretty neat idea, I'm pretty sure you could just repurpose an old android phone for the job, it wouldn't look as nostalgic, but fits in your pocket better!still wouldn't mind a pi Zero, every time I look they're sold out.
You can't just drop a bomb like that and not share some details. What do you think of it, what have you done with it, what are you going to do with it etc!Def
Apparently it was the sd card formatting, since it's now alive and installing raspbian
and if this makes you feel more fulfilled...
because the power is supplied by a micro USB jack I don't want to cause it too much wear from plugging/unplugging cables. Honestly it should come with a switch... but nothing some leftover PC parts won't fix
