About the project
Nostalgic for my old gaming systems, i decided to build up on top some open source code and create my own multi-system console. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi B+ and allows emulation of various systems in their original code glory including: Commodore64, Atari2600, Apple II, MAME, NES, SNES, Gameboy, GameboyAdvance, Nintendo DS, Gamecube, IBM and many others. It also allows streaming games from a NVidia powered powerful gaming PC to your console, while still using the consoles inputs! (at FullHD/30fps has around 150ms delay).
The system is encased in a lit 3D printed prototype case and features a HDMI video output, an analog video output, a P2 audio output, two speakers with amplifier (allows connecting external audio), wireless Mouse and Keyboard and up to 4 wireless XBOX Joypads.
Addomg new games is done either by copying the files to the appropriate network folder, or by simply inserting a usb stick with recognizable media, and the system will pull them in automatically. Automatic dowload of images, descriptions and other metadatais also featured in the interface.
