In this video my son Luke and I build a Retropie Nintendo Emulator with a raspberry pi 4. This is a great project to do with kids over the Holiday Season! I’m not huge into retro gaming, but this certainly takes me back to my childhood.
This NESPi 4 case looks like the original Nintendo Entertainment System that I grew up with in my childhood. Unfortunately my NES console died in my childhood when the electrical contacts no longer made a good connection with the game cartridges. So this project is my way of enjoying the games of my childhood again with my son.
