Anton MacArthur from Retro Game Punk built a handheld console with a Raspberry Pi and called it the “Pi-Boy”.

This is not so much a build log as it is a retrospective of building the Pi-Boy. I shall describe the challenges I faced, the solutions I used and what I will do to improve in later revisions.

Challenge – Build a handheld console based on the Raspberry Pi.

  • 3″ LCD screen [12v]
  • Broken Gameboy
