A Maker from Denmark decided to build a mini Gameboy. The instructions and CAD models for 3D printing is open source for anyone to rebuild it.
The Danish 3D printing prodigy Rasmus Hauschild has a mini Gameboy made with a 3D printer. In the self-built Gameboy a Rasperry Pi Zero is used. The operating system runs Emulation Station which the mini Gameboy can play all sorts of Gameboy classic games, such as Super Mario Kart or Tetris.
The “Pi Zero - Gameboy NANO” as Hauschild called the unit, received the legendary Nintendo design, but can also be implemented as an emulator for a number of other devices, such as Atari and Dreamcast. Hauschild ¬†published the design for the “Pi Zero- Gameboy Nano” at Thingiverse free download.
Technically the “Pi Zero - Gameboy NANO” uses a 1.5 inch OLED display, HDMI port, control crosses and various ports. The operating system supports emulator such as the Sony Playstation 1, Gameboy, Atari, Nintendo 64 and Sega Dreamcast. The games are loaded with a 32GB microSD card on the Pi Zero Nano.
The Mini Gameboy consists of eight 3D files that can be downloaded for free. Rasmus Hauschild used the 3D printer Ultimaker 2 to print it in which he reconfigured in order to print with a print resolution of 50 microns.
Anyone who do not have the will or time can buy this mini gameboy for $ 250 plus shipping from Hauschild (at Rasmushauschild @ hotmail.com). No bargain. But certainly unique.
