GigaCat’s Stupid Cardboard Box (3A+)

Post by GigaCat » Tue Jul 30, 2019 9:16 am

It was 1 in the morning. I could not sleep, so naturally I challenged myself to build a RetroPie system inside a tiny cardboard box from the closet, and do it in 4 hours.
- A lil box.
- Raspberry Pi 3 A+.
- 3.2” SPI display from Pocket Adventures (w/ adapter from the same site), soldered onto the underbelly of the Pi because I’m a weird man. Driven by fbcp-ili9341.
- Volume Assist from Pocket Adventures. Volume pot works, albeit with weird stepping. I absolutely forgot to solder on the USB port.
- 2 uxcell speakers
- PAM8403, soldered to PP25 and PP26.
Due to poor positioning on my part, it doesn’t close completely. With better positioning, I could probably even angle a fan in there.
