Nintendo Game Boy as Retro Gaming Handheld DIY Tutorial

After the Arcade Machine DIY Guide today we have a very special tutorial for the readers on! We show step by step how to build a Retro Gaming Handheld from a 30 year old Game Boy using Raspberry Pi Zero. You can play your favorite games from the beginning of the console age to the last millennium on a single Retro Gaming Handheld in color.
