Haha yep. I got a TNT2 32MB graphics accelerator for Christmas 2000 and played Quake 3 to death.. It must have been the coolest damn thing in the world to me at the time.. I was 13 8-)

It compiled on the RPI0 in 46 minutes

I'm also very enthusiastic about making one of these GBZs. I already bought a Pi0 and a defect GameBoy. Now i'm looking for a Dremel. I don't want to spend too much money on this, I sort of only need it for this project.
This in mind, does someone have a cheap offer from a german shop or Banggood (since I want to order most of my parts there) for me?
I would really appreciate it!
The cheap one would be this.
If you are into quality, then go with this.
But you can go lower on original dremels. My local "Hagebaumarkt" had Dremel Packages for 30€. Try this.

I used to have a Dremel but lost it in my mom's garage mess :/
I replaced it for this project with a black & decker rotary tool. It's compatible with all the Dremel pieces and has been working fine. It cost about $30-35 on Amazon and can be shipped with prime.
