Hi everyone,

Signed up after discovered Helder's retroPSU on Youtube and purchased 2. Alway wanted to build a multipurpose portable hand held that can do everything but keep delaying it as lack of good battery charge/play board (75% done). This forum got so much informations make my head spin reading and now see so many features wanted to add don't think can finish anytime soon.

I'm a tinkerer by nature, so when this new-fangled (at the time) "Raspberry Pi 3" caught my glance, I couldn't help but indulge. I then went on to learn about the Game Boy Zero approximately a year ago, but never quite pulled the trigger until last month. Now that I have, the itch is far too real, and now I want to put a Raspberry Pi in eeeeeeverything.

I'm definitely going to be around awhile, and you guys will see all my neat creations and failures. I genuinely enjoy reading up on others' projects, so I'm looking forward to you guys' works, too.

Hello everyone!
Name is Rick. I was formally a signal support specialist (radio's, networking, and computers) in the US Army. I was discharged due to medical issues in 2014 and now I am a stay at home father. I just found out about Raspberry Pi's and having a blast tinkering with them. So far I am awaiting parts for my first GameBoy Zero build but I will be either putting a 3B+ or 3A+ in it. Unfortunately, I didn't do a lot of research before purchasing my kit and wasn't really sure of the setup I wanted. So now I am left to figure out I am also working on creating a PiHole for network traffic in my house.

Looking forward to talking to y'all and learning all I can through both successes and failures.

Hi, I feel I should introduce myself, since I already asked a question or two on this forum.

My name is Sebastien, I'm 36, and I live in the suburbs, south from Paris. I work in web development, and I've been kind of a geek most of my life.
I had the original Gameboy back when I was a kid, and still have it. It still turns on, but the screen quickly fades away, even with fully charged batteries. I'm not good with repairing things, so I figured I should do a Google search. I quickly found the word "Gameboy Zero", looked about it, found in love, and thought I should give it a try. One day I'll be able to repair my old Gameboy.
So here I am. Currently waiting for the final piece to come in the mail, and I will be able to finish my project. Can't wait !
French builder !

I'm Muddy. I am a 26 year old vet tech from New England. Some of my hobbies include cycling, animals (of all kinds), video games (mostly PC, some Switch, some retro), and crafting (cross stitching right now).
I'm currently working on a Minty Pi, which is my first project of this nature. It's been a lot of fun! Looking forward to learning more about this hobby.

I am a 37 year old from Scotland. Been into PC/Tech since i was a child building my first PC at 10yo. Got a fair few Pi projects around the flat and managed to stubble across this forum after seeing the RetroFlag GB.
Hopefully going to pick up Kite's Circuit Sword in the next buying round, but while i await that i was thinking of starting work on a GBA SP AIO board with the CM3. Not done any SMD PCBs yet so this might be a steep learning curve, but we will see how it goes.

Hey- I'm new and looking at tinkering around with electronics. I have some electrical background, but mostly I'm an artist so a lot of this will be a learning experience for me. I'm new to raspberry pi, but when I saw some of the sudomod videos I was very excited to try at least something! :)

I'm based in New Zealand, so I'm interested in finding builds available in my country that aren't expensive, but I can have fun with customizing. Here's to hoping I don't run out of steam with all the research I've been doing over the last few months into this ;) I have access to all the tools to make something, and I enjoy repairing welding guns at work, so I'm hoping this will be a fun hobby for me to get into :)

Hi. First thing I really soldered was a PSP big battery mod a few years ago. I've done a couple GBA IPS mods since, including a BoxyPixel battery add on. Tried to put a usb-c connection in a 3ds and bricked the 3ds. Did a battery and dpad mod on a RS-97. Made a gameboy macro. I've got all the stuff to make a cmoy headphone amp in an Altoids tin.

Came here to ask for help with a PSP USB-C mod and just tried to double post because I didn't read the message about a mod needing to approve posts. Sorry :)

Browsed the marketplace here. There is some inspiring work on these boards!

Hi, I'm Caleb and I am a musician from Utah. I want to get started with raspberry pi. I don't have any experience with it, but I want to learn and make things like the mintyPi and eventually make my own ideas. I would love any suggestions on what I should do.
