This Mini NES Raspberry Pi Case Also Supports Small Size Cartridges

When the Mini NES was announced, we started looking for the best 3D printed case we could find. The DIYer daftmike blows it out of the water with a case that actually holds the cartridges into.

As you probably expected at this point, the entire system is powered by a Raspberry Pi with RetroPie installed , but this one goes far beyond that. It also has an NFC reader that scans the 3D printed game cartridges (you need to make one too) and downloads the game. Don’t worry, there is no real software on the cartridges, this is all for a show. Even the controller is 3D printed and made from scratch using Arduino. This is the epitome of over-engineering, but amazing at the same time. The best part is that daftmike documents the entire process, from building the body to making the controller, so you can do it yourself or just take inspiration from some of the simpler parts.
