How about a battery powered, Bluetooth gamepad that could fit on your keyring? Well, that's the awesomeness that is the 8Bitdo Zero controller.

Play anywhere, and be ready for anything with the 8Bitdo Zero.

It remembers the connection and, depending on the host device, will automatically connect when it's powered up, so say goodbye to messy wires and get Gaming!

  • We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once!

Any Pi can run RetroPie, but I recommend using the Raspberry Pi Ze...
