Pitendo: Un mini-Nintendo con corazón de Raspberry Pi

In a new post of "The Raspberry Pi It is a party and is not to be missed ", our adventure through the Web has left us outside the gates of the project Pitendo, which includes all, from the Raspberry Pi to the housing, to assemble your own miniature Nintendo NES emulate more than twenty systems without major.

The high density based projects Raspberry Pi it's not by chance. If its leaders maintain the rules and prices, all we can hope for is an acceleration in sales of computer SBC. His future anticipates some very ambitious plans, as the special support Windows 10, although personally I have doubts about the commitment of Microsoft with hardware. In the meantime, another idea to play, o por qué no comprar (si te encuentras en los Estados Unidos): Pitendo. The idea is based on the BabyNES housing that anyone can get off the Thingiverse website and print 3D. BabyNES is compatible with the Raspberry Pi B + or the Raspberry Pi 2, but the package Pitendo brings the latest hardware.

Besides of Raspberry Pi, each Pitendo It includes an SD card 8 gigabytes platform loaded with the hindfoot, USB gamepad control similar to the Super Nintendo, compatible power supply cable and HDMI. The adoption of hindfoot is undoubtedly a step in the right direction, due to its interesting interface and extensive support emulators. Some of the systems are compatible Atari 2600, Apple II, Commodore 64, the three Gameboy, Sega Game Gear, MAME, NeoGeo, NES, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Sega Master System, Sega Mega Drive, PlayStation 1 and PC, among others. Performance may vary from case, but hindfoot optimizations should be sufficient to convert the Pitendo a solid choice in entertainment.

The official price of each Pitendo It is 139 Dollars, and which explains the official website shipments are made only to the United States, Nevertheless, with a Raspberry Pi BabyNES own housing and can build something very similar. In fact, I think a DIY variant would be cheaper. Custom 3D prints are becoming cheaper, and a memory card is not as expensive to say. The only thing the user must do is load in both cases their ROMs manually. The issue of ROMs is still as delicate as ever, and pre-load game images may cause serious problems to the seller.
