Since its release, the $35 Raspberry Pi mini-computer has been hailed as the perfect all-in-one retro game console. Now, it’s easier to do than ever, and it doesn’t take any Linux knowledge whatsoever. Here’s how to make your own retro game console in under 10 minutes.
So, you finally picked up a Raspberry Pi and it’s sitting on your desk, waiting for you to do something awesome with it. Good news, setting it up is stupid-easy these days, and in less than 30 minutes, you’ll be hacking away on your tiny little $35 computer.
