Cheap as chips: the Raspberry Pi Zero in a botched-together games console

Just saw this over at The MagPi, so thought I’d share.

Joe Foulkes wanted to create an as cheap-as-possible gaming console. So, he took an old Samsung Galaxy box, a Pi Zero, some prototyping board and some other components and created BotchBoy. The build cost is about £15/$20 and is easily achievable by most beginner hackers with rudimentary soldering skills. Take a look here or view a video of it in action below.

    This is great. Does he also made the code public? I’d like to create it as well

      Best thing to do is to go the YouTube video and put a comment on there to see if you can make contact with the maker.
