The PI-tendo has several intriguing features, the general idea is to recreate the system even add the capability of online gameplay. The actual device cost at around ($120) if you are a retro gamer and want to play the original: Donkey Kong, Burger Time, Zaxxon, Q-Bert, Legend of Zelda, and Pitfall. It's powered by a Raspberry PI module / node for easy download and construction should be very easy and affordable unless you want to go the extreme route.

    I'm beginning the first stage with the encasement which is half the actual size of the full console. In the specifications might use the original case given more internal space for parts and extras. The only concern is the outer paint, might be able to custom, but would like to give the sense of a full professional gaming console. Recently, found reusable stickers that have the "Pi-tendo" logo already in place and will be used for the encasement as well. The remaining part are labels for the various ports.
