Hobbyist makes SNES mini with RaspberryPi Zero

Recommended Posts

A youtube guy lybery5 made a video of him building and putting together this SNES mini. I thought it was going to be something more interesting when I first saw the article. Then I realized it was a case design, he doesn't mention the emulator or OS it's running but I doubt that matters. It's neat if you haven't seen something like this before though.

Its not like theres a lot of different OS's to chose from for the pi0. I dont think it even supports win10 like pi3.

 

And tbh, these kinds of things are so boring these days. All you need is some spare cash for a 3D printer and basic sketch skills, then just hit print and pour 673296067 tons of hot glue into it to hold everything in place...

 

This was much more of an accomplishment back when 3D printers were a mad mans dream, and you actually had to mold the cases etc yourself.

I agree, I don't know what I expected. I thought mini SNES meant someone took some core parts of the console and did something to miniaturize it. Like those project that make handheld N64s and the such. But then I read past the title and realized otherwise. For what it's worth this wasn't 3D printed, casted.  Not that it really makes a difference, the whole thing was filled with hot glue though. 

 

But ya, overall this thing is not original.
