    Assembling a Nintendo Entertainment System-style model from Retro Power! It's a kit built with a Raspberry Pi in mind, so you can have the fun of making a Lego model while also getting a functional case.
    ● Here's the kit on Amazon (not sponsored or affiliated)

My son (now age 12) made a bunch of micro game systems out of legos that look really good, including the NES. He even used stud.io to create a model and build instructions. Neat stuff.

Hey Clint! Can you please do a tech tales episode on the rise and fall of Commodore because Companies like IBM and Apple were considered the innovators in the computer world but Commodore is very under rated when it comes to their computers especially the PET, Vic20, C64 (All Models) C128 (C128 and C128D/Cost Reduced Versions) C16, CPlus4, 264, and the Amiga line and what made them closed their doors in 1994. I would really appreciate it.

worst fault OC is out of the question for using the Pi in that case........for 8 and 16 bit console emulation is fine but when you get in to PS1, Saturn, and N64 territory the Pi needs to be OC'd to 1.4 ghz via a txt file from 800mhz comes standard with and will need a heatsink

I'd love it if someone could alter his version like this: 1: Reposition the raspberry a lot lower (so much unused space!) and bring back some real proportions too! 2: Wire the cables from the inside, make a couple detachable "Chunks" which, if placed on the bottom! would also mimic the ports of the OG NES as well!3: Route the wires of he controllers to the correct location on he right! you'll lose a bit cable length depending on config choice, but it would look awesome. And again, more similar to the real NES. 4: do the same with HDMI and USB, To the back! A Slight disadvantage would be plugging in/out and cable stress. but nothing a bit of hot glue can't solve! :P

With something like this, I figured you could always just switch things around inside to fit your needs and have better placement for ports. Why follow the directions to the letter? :D That's what I would do anyway...

Not sure if it was the 8-Bit guy or someone else I saw do a breakdown of the original NES controller, but I believe there was a little lead weight in the original controllers to make them feel more premium.

I'm curious if you've done a video on the Raspberry Pi itself...considering it was designed primarily for schools as a nice simple way to teach kids programming but has now blown up because they were smart enough (and had the foresight enough) to make it do stuff like this. I mean I heard about the Pi back when it was still a WiP and didn't think it would be as big as it is.

They probably positioned the Pi that way due to thermal issues. Pi3's tend to get pretty hot.
