RetroPie GameCube

The plan was easy – enclose Raspberry PI in the GameCube’s housing. I figured out the layout of internals beforehand on my own – so there was nothing on paper nor from the Internet. The entire project came to life as it was being built, but everything planned had to be organized anew. I need to add that I have no clue about electrics, electronics nor about soldering. I learned most of it during those few nights of assembling everything. Moreover, I didn’t intend to write this how-to so parts of construction, pictured on photographs, are likely updated, soldered or had some finishing touches. I do hope I can somehow show the building process.
