    Raspberry pi kit that requires soldering

    The title says most of it, looking online a lot of the major appeal of raspberry Pi kits is that no soldering is needed, but I got my first iron recently and was looking for a kit that needs soldering, or maybe some guides online on what I could do with a Pi that needs soldering, thanks!

    Worklog Hot Apple Pi

    Three years ago I came up with a design for a meme portable as part of a mini contest that Aurelio put on. It was enough to win me a GC+ (thanks and by the way, I swear I will put it to good use someday) and I told myself I would someday actually make the portable from my design. The design...

    Worklog A Switch Lite Sized Raspberry Pi Portable

    Hi guys, thought I'd share my first project with you all. I've already finished the first iteration of this project but I will try and do this in a build log style so you can see some of my process before I start on some of the upgrades I've got planned. Late last year I was without a project...

    The Super Pi

    So over the last 2 weeks, I've been working on a project using the Raspberry Pi 3 as a portable gaming device. (Very original huh?) I made an attempt with it before using some really silly stuff inside of it: A USB SNES Controller, 18560s, RPI default audio... and so on. The final case thickness...

    Discussion Gameboy Advance SP with Raspberry Pi 0

    I don't know where else to post this so I guess i'll put it here. This is my first electronics project and i'm super proud of how it came out. Big thank you to gameboypi for putting all the info up on GitHub and helping me when I got stuck!
  7. Question GamePi Advance Attachment

    Hello; I've had a project on my desk for some months now, where the idea was to modify the Gameboy cartridge player for the Gamecube, remove the board and replace it with a Raspberry Pi with RetroPie. This way, not only can the bottom attachment display Gameboy cartridges, it can also emulate...
  8. Question Looking to start making a Vita dock, need electronics advice.

    Note before starting, I have very little knowledge of electronics, good knowledge of 3D modeling, and limited programming experience. I'm looking to design and 3D print a dock for the PS Vita that has a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ to output video. This has been done before, but I want to also add a...

    Question Help wiring switching audio

    I think I know how to do this, but I just wanna make sure before I go ahead and start. I'm planning on wiring in a headphone/amp switching circuit to my handheld (a unit running RetroPie), which is on a Raspberry Pi B+. Using this TRS jack as an example, I'm pretty sure I need to wire Terminal...
  12. QUESTION - LED Light Strip Controlled by Raspberry Pi Camera

    I have a christmas party to go to tonight, and I was interested in making a cool light up sweater using LED light strips, and controlling the colors of it using the raspberry pi camera so it reflects whatever the camera sees, but after researching a little I found no information on how to do...

    Seek Thermal Compact or Flir One

    Gidday all, Does anyone have a Seek Thermal Compact or Flir One that they'd be willing to sell for less than an arm and leg? See I've got it in my head that it'd be helpful to develop something to go on my drone that would allow me to do some thermal imaging for spotting livestock during...
  14. Question Raspberry Pi Console Power/Battery help

    Okay so I am building a portable Raspberry Pi console, and my goal is to make it as close to the Nintendo Switch in form factor and function as possible.

    Nobble's Pikaboy SP: Pokemon-themed RetroPie console in a GBA SP shell.

    I have been putting off my WiiP for a few days and felt bad about my laziness. After I had been laying in bed night after night, restless, knowing that my project was watching me from the corner of the room, I hid it away and thought about my life decisions. So I decided to go on a diet of...

    Worklog PIS2, a long overdue ps2 portable

    So after a short break of… around 4 years I finally got the time/ motivation to finish my PS2 portable. I couldn’t stand seeing this half finish case staring back at me, like a ghost of the modding past (see what I did there), begging to be completed. For reference this is the link to old post...
