The 80s and 90s seen some of the greatest video games systems ever made. And having grown up through that time and not being able to afford one of these systems, I missed out on some great games. Now these days there are amazing programs out there that let you emulate these old systems and play these incredible games. Also there are some hardware devices that let you convert the original controllers to usb for use with these emulators. Now its cool that you could have your computer setup and play these wonders. But that doesnt feel the same to me.
I found a broken retron game system at a goodwill. This seemed like a great case for use in building out a retro pi console.
I wanted a console with the original game controllers could be plugged in. This is achieved via using the usb adapters for the console controllers.
Inside the case I mounted a raspberry pi, a usb hub, and then the control boards for the usb adapters.
