Keep scrolling down as your mind is likely going to boggle while reading through the rest of this piece.
The genius behind the design
With the help of a Raspberry Pi mini-computer and an Altoids mint box, find out how this brilliant Youtuber named “Sudomod” managed to design a completely functional gaming console that fits perfectly in your pocket.
The maker of this pocket-sized gaming console states in one of his blog posts that the latest console has been polished to make it presentable for gamers. The purpose is to fit an entire gaming console inside a cute and tiny mint box of Altoids.
But the latest version guarantees improved durability and outlook as its components are 3D printed.
Quite similar to previous gaming consoles, the mintyPi 2.0 has a display and an ordinary controller with buttons embedded on its surface for gameplay. Its hinge has been printed as well so that you can look at the screen from a convenient angle. Moreover, users can also utilize its inbuilt USB sound card to enjoy improved sound quality.
Now for the most spectacular part of gaming Raspberry Pi
Now the most spectacular aspect of mintyPi 2.0 is that it comes with the newest Pi Zero W. As a result, the device can connect without a USB cable for downloading the latest updates through Wi-Fi and more!
Sudomod intends to soon release a detailed guideline to help you craft your very own mintyPi 2.0. If you are willing to learn more about Raspberry Pi related tech, follow his blog right now.
