Make your own miniature 3D printed, Raspberry Pi-powered Game Boy emulator

An interesting 3D printed, raspberry Pi-powered Game Boy emulator has popped up on Thingiverse recently. The DIY project combines the versatility of the small Raspberry Pi computers with some intelligent 3D printing to create what is essentially a mini portable Game Boy/SNES handheld console.

At just 75% the size, it has a much smaller footprint than the original Game Boy, and is just a fraction of the size of the giant Raspberry Pi-powered Game Boy emulator we detailed previously.

Packed with a Raspberry Pi A+, a slightly modded controller set-up (inspired by the SNES), and a 5V smartphone battery pack, the 3D printer files for the case and D-pad are provided on Thingiverse.

While you’ll need a 3D printer, a basic knowledge of the Raspberry Pi universe and a bit of ingenuity, it is possible to put one of these suckers together yourself. The instructions aren’t exactly detailed, but they do provide the necessary 3D printer files and a basic rundown of how to put it together.
