Enjoy the ability to play retrogames on a large LCD anywhere, or use the composite output of the Raspberry Pi and play retrogames on a classic CRT TV (LCD TVs work too) for that trip back in time to the 1980s or 1990s or even from the 1970's.

Have you ever wondered what games were like on the Sinclair computers? Commodore computers? Maybe you'd prefer to experience those SNES games or Sega Genesis games again? There are more than 50 different emulators available for RetroPie - experience them all at your fingertips with the MyPi.

The 3d printable MyPi case and parts will need an electronics kit to complete the MyPi build.

There are 3 kit variations for the MyPi available. The Premium Kit includes everything needed including all electronics and a 3d printed case and a comprehensive manual for building the MyPi.

The Basic kit contains a 3d printed case and many parts that are contained in the Premium kit; however, unlike the Premium kit , it does not include a Raspberry Pi. The user is expected to have their own Raspberry Pi and other components as detailed in the kit description listings

The bare bones kit contains only a printed manual, a D-pad board, a fire buttons board, an LCD adapter board, and two trigger boards.
