Hello! Present yourself here!

Post by Admin » Sun 11 Dec 2016 14:47

Hello guys,

I'm Pierre here, 8BCraft maker. I live in Paris in France and I love to make new things.
My main job is a startup called LOMA Innovation that I created with 2 friends, we are working on shape-changing plastic polymers.
I have been working on arcade stations on my spare time for some time, I first did the coffee table, then a few cases for friends, then I started working on the handheld RaspiBoy.

Personnaly I think the coffee table is a lot of fun, when I make an evening at home we always end up playing some crazy games. But as the kit would have been around 400€ I am not sure that it would have been a success on kickstarter. Therefor I found out a much more affordable option which is the handheld!

I first did a prototype that is quite a mess under the cartridge, then when I saw that people liked it I started to work on the final kit!

Hi.
Names Richaed, currently in the UK. Been playing with raspberry pi for past 4 years.
Also Pi certified.
This is a great project. Already built a pi powered Arcade maxhine, was looking at doing a hand held version then came across your kickstarter.

Very impressed.

my most recent portable ARM/linux devices are the PocketCHIP and Zipit Z2 , both quite fun projects, but a bit too versatile for their own good, i think :)

Can't wait to play with it.

Hi, Stephane from Canada.
I've been using emulation for ever (Nesticle in the 90's!) ... and have been using Retropie on my Raspberry Pi 3 for many months now (6+)
