Old gaming console converted into a Raspberry Pi retro machine

Matt Brailsford (aka Circuitbeard) has taken an old Grandstand Scramble gaming console and adapted it for use with the Raspberry Pi. He’s got a 5″ HDMI TFT screen (which gives a resolution of 800×480) for the display and used the Picade controller board from Pimoroni. He cut and adapted various parts to allow for the buttons and the joystick and then made a new bezel for more customisation. The end result is a beautiful, compact retro gaming system. Read more about the build here and see it in action below.
