PiPlay Portable Build-It-Yourself Games Console
PiPlay portable is a Build-it-Yourself games console based around a Raspberry Pi Zero.
The PiPlay comes as a kit with a PCB, coloured buttons, 2.4" colour screen, headphone jack and other components and needs to be soldering together. You then add a Pi Zero or newer Pi Zero W.
Because the PiPlay uses a Raspberry Pi you can develop games using Scratch and Python - popular choices for beginner and intermediate coders.
The PiPlay runs on 2 AA batteries giving 3 hours of play time.
We can think of lots of other uses for this portable setup in addition to playing games.
Check out the PiPlay Kickstarter Campaign.
