Retro Console Emulator in a Game Boy Advance SP Case: Pi SP

by Lambert Varias

We’ve seen retro console emulators based on the Raspberry Pi crammed inside a Game Boy and a Game Boy Pocket’s body. Bacman forum member Frostedfires wanted to use the Game Boy Advance SP’s case, but the Pi wouldn’t fit inside it. So he used a small Raspberry Pi clone called the Odroid W instead.

Aside from the Odroid W, Frostedfires also used a Teensy 3.1 to control the analog stick and the barrage of buttons that he put all over the Pi SP. He also used a 3.5″ LCD, slightly larger than the SP’s original 2.5″ display. Aside from the video game emulators, Frostedfires also loaded the Pi SP with Linux distro called Ultimate Raspbian.

It’s not a polished casemod, but it does what it was made to do. Head to Frostedfires’ threads’ on the Bacman forums to check out his build log and images of the Pi SP.
