Those of you fortunate to have – or have access to a 3D printer then the PiGRRL may be just what you’re looking for.

The PiGRRL is a kit that when built up with your own 3D printed case (Design supplied with the kit) turns your Raspberry Pi into a Game Boy looking potable games machine.

  • 1x – Raspberry Pi 2 – Model B – ARMv7 with 1G RAM
