Portable Retro Video Game Emulator

The aim of this project is to allow the user to play video games form their childhood in the palm of their hand

Project Description

While designing this project I wanted it to be something that the user could take on a bus or train and play on long journeys. The Project is a portable device, which allows the user to play games from a plethora of consoles from the ZX Spectrum to the Playstation 1. The device uses a Raspberry Pi 3 to power the Emulator software.

Project Findings

The aim of the project was to make a portable handheld device that could be used to play retro video games on public transport. A more favourable alternative to the sub par experience of playing on an emulator.
