The MintyPi 2.0 is a very interesting project that we can easily define as a homemade console mounted in a candy box, although the model that has shown in the video is much better finished than its first prototype, since as we can see it is completely closed and has a very good finish. See wermy channel in order to see more about this project.
At the hardware level the MintyPi 2.0 mounts a Raspberry Pi Zero W, a very affordable computer module that has a price of ten dollars and has an ARM11 processor at 1 GHz accompanied by 512 MB of RAM.

To order your boards, use PCBWAY.com and select your color.




The parts added to the final version have been made with a 3D printer and the result is almost professional, so much so that I am clear that I could try to sell the MintyPi 2.0 and I'm sure there would be no shortage of buyers. It is important to keep in mind that this definitive version brings improvements at the hardware level compared to the original version, among which WiFi connectivity and USB sound card stand out to offer a superior experience.

The author has confirmed that he plans to share a detailed guide with all the necessary steps to carry out this interesting project. The components are cheap, but the fact of needing a 3D printer to finish it correctly makes it not available to everyone.


The second model also uses USB speakers and can connect to Wi-Fi which makes it nearly a complete package. At the moment it seems the device is able to play some very traditional Nintendo classics such as Donkey Kong or Zelda. This is really quite an interesting endeavor, as essentially the Raspberry Pi system, the 3D printer, and the design software has made it possible for one person to manufacture a gaming console in their house.
