Making a Raspberry Pi based video game emulation system
Class will go over how to build a Raspberry Pi based computer system that can play retro video games for things such as the NES, gameboy, sega genesis, and the like as authentically as possible in a slick modern system using the RetroPi Linux distribution. Setting up the initial system, choosing controllers, physical case for the system, how to get games, and software setup will be covered.
