RetroPie Console

By Andrew Gregory. Posted

This portable retro gaming console is giving a new lease of life to a 1963 Sky Tourer car radio. Martin Mander drilled out the top to make room for a joystick and six buttons, and cleared out the old electronics to make room for a Raspberry Pi 3 and a Pimoroni Picade board.


To make the radio’s fascia glow, he’s built in a Pimoroni Blinkt! LED strip, used Sugru to neaten the build, and spray-painted the whole thing from the original drab grey to a nice bright red.

More information is available on their blog.
