Games Pit - Make your own games console!

This is a really nice little project for the Pi.  Imagine your local nursery who have a television, but nothing interactive really could really do with something cheap and fun for their children to play on.

1. Source all the parts needed for children friendly play.
2. Build a suitable case
3. Install the Pi with Games Pit (Make sure it auto boots)
4. Make some of your own games

As a term's project this would be really useful and a wonderful way to encourage people to take Raspberry Pis into the community.


  1. Hi James,

    I came by Raspberry Pi Slice and the quality of content really grabbed my attention, so I thought I’d drop you an e-mail. It's great seeing so much Raspberry Pi stuff, and that's what we're into!

    I’m currently collaborating with Premier Farnell, a top electronics tech company and distributor of the Raspberry Pi, and we’d love to know if you’d be interested in mentioning PF and/or some of its products on your website.

    At the moment, we are able to provide bespoke content written by Premier Farnell’s very own tech copywriters at your request. Also, in the coming weeks we will also be expanding the scope of our collaborations to include things such as product testing, reviews, organising tech/electronics networking and events, and providing you with access to experts for Q&A. We could also potentially send products for giveaways on your site or offer exclusive discounts for your readership, which could stir up some interest.

    As I say, good content is available right now, but we can do the other stuff in the near future.

    Let me know what you think, and if you have any questions, fire away!
