Handheld game console, now make your own?

PyGamer is a DIY kit that allows you to easily build a handheld game machine yourself. Of course, products using the Raspberry Pi, which have played a key role in creating various electronic works with a small single board computer, have been steadily released. However, doing this requires coding, welding with a soldering iron, and knowledge and experience in electrical engineering.

However, Adafruit’s Py Gamer can be a good alternative to those who want to make a handheld game console with their own hands. Of course, just because you have made it, you can’t play hundreds of games, but if you save your Game Boy Advance or 3DS ROM to an SD card, you can play as much as you want. There is also an optional mobile emulator called GPD XD.

Phi Gamer is based on 512KB of flash and 192KB of RAM, and has 8MB of storage space and comes with an ATSAMD51 microcontroller. It has a 1.8-inch display that supports 160×128 resolution, speakers, batteries, and a case, as well as all necessary buttons. It’s a bit difficult to play 16-bit or more games, but you can enjoy it without any problems if it’s like Game Boy. The price is $59.95. Related information can be found here .



Through the monthly AHC PC and HowPC magazine era, he has watched 'technology age' in online IT media such as ZDNet, electronic newspaper Internet manager, editor of Consumer Journal Ivers, TechHolic publisher, and editor of Venture Square. I am curious about this market that is still full of vitality.
