What kind of projects would you like to see next?

Post by wermy » Tue May 10, 2016 8:14 pm

Hey guys,
Glad everyone's enjoying the GBZ project! It should be wrapping up in the next few guides, so I'm figuring out what to do next. I planned on doing a few smaller ones with single-post guides (something to go along with the GBZ seemed appropriate: https://www.facebook.com/sudomod/photos/484437685100563 ).
What do you guys think, though? What sorts of projects/guides would you like to see? Mostly gaming-related? Just cool Arduino/Raspberry Pi projects in general? I've really been blown away by how quickly this community is growing, so I'd love to let you guys have some input on it.

Discuss!

Edit: Making this a global sticky temporarily for more visibility. :)

I love the Pi arcade build and would want to build that eventually, but my next project will probably be trying to convert an old Asus netbook into a retropie gaming system...I've been looking into, but haven't found a whole lot about it other than that the lcd screen connectivity could be an issue.

I'd like to see an original GBA style build (but with A,B,X,Y buttons) Image

I have a Pi Zero sitting here and a spare case for the GBA as I replaced the shell of my GBA a while back.

A handheld system that incorporates the N64 joystick and is able to play N64 games! :D

I'm definitely interested in accessories!

I don't know what system we would put it into but a handheld that had a joystick (OR TWO!!! :lol: ) and can handle the more robust games such as n64 and ps1 would be awesome.

Accessories would be pretty sweet and probably a lot easier though

I wish I could 'like' this post. :D

I've sketched out a few ideas for a PS Vita style enclosure for a Pi Zero or even a Pi 3 build. D-Pad, Joy stick, A/B (X/Y/1/2 or C buttons), L1, R1, L2, R2.

If the official Pi Display came in a 5" variant it just might work, but the 7" makes the thing bigger than a Wii U controller.

I think accessories would be cool.

i'd love to see the DMG USB hub and the MintyPi

i also think it'd be cool to have a way for user to submit their own tutorials/projects

I've been interested in this one but I don't see where I could put x and y buttons, the buttons are centered in an area that doesn't leave comfortable room for the other buttons.

There's a gba clone with the x and y buttons but getting one will set you back from 75 to 100 bucks just so you can use that housing
