The FunKey S Is the Smallest Handheld Gaming System We’ve Ever Seen

This SNES Is Now a Nintendo Switch Dock
The Nintendo Switch and its docking station are pretty good looking the way they come from the factory. But that hasn’t stopped people from wanting to customize their game systems to their own liking.

Raspberry Pi Game Boy Case Mod Has microSD Card Slot in Cartridge: Game Boy Zero
Another day, another Raspberry Pi retro emulator in a Game Boy case. But Redditor wermy426’s Game Boy Zero deserves its own post because it has a couple of neat features. The main one is that he loads software on the Pi by inserting a cartridge, just as you would load a game on a normal Game Boy.

Raspberry Pi Zero Game Boy Case Mod: Maker Man Zero
We’ve seen the Raspberry Pi 2 stuffed inside the case of the original Game Boy to make a retro handheld gaming sytem. Redditor bentika did the same but with the $5 Raspberry Pi Zero. The tiny board made the project cheaper, but no less complex.

Provenance Retro Video Game Emulator for Apple TV: The Past of Television is Here
Here’s the funny thing about video games. It gets harder to get a hold of games from 5 to 10 years ago, but it becomes easier to play games from 30 years ago. Aside from their original consoles, you can play 8-bit and 16-bit games on your computer, mobile device or on your own DIY console.

In 1988, Nintendo hired Sony to make a CD-ROM add-on for the Super Famicom to compete with the Sega Mega CD. But Sony also made a standalone version of this “Super Disc” add-on – a console that could play CD games and media as well as Super Famicom cartridges – and presented it at CES in 1991.

Fridge Full of Jurassic Park Games Hits eBay
Geeks can be a strange lot. Take this eBay auction. It’s for a plethora of old SNES game cartridges. The vast majority of them are all for one game. I’m not sure why you would want multiple copies of a single game, but whatevs.
