About This Class


In this class we will be building a Retro Gaming System using a Raspberry Pi. I will be showing the basics of getting the system up and running. It is up to you to take the system to the next level and design a cool looking retro enclosing case.

You will be able to play all your old Nintendo, PlayStation, Atari, Gameboy, Sega games from older consoles on your Gaming System.
