The elegant, iconic design of the NES cartridge tickles a nostalgic part of our brains. For many, its shape and feel MEANS 8-bit gaming to us. For this reason, what better object to repurpose as an all-in-one console case/controller grip for your own old school game machine?
Using the incredibly tiny, yet powerful Raspberry Pi Zero Linux computer running RetroPie, plus the wonderful Joy Bonnet for all of your button and thumbstick need, this project is as easy as, well, pie!
- old, unwanted NES game cartridge
- 3.8mm NES security screw bit and driver (aka "Gamebit")
- double stick foam tape
