About (daddelkischde 2)

The daddelkischde 2 is the evolution of the daddelkischde. It's a board kit to put a Raspberry Pi Zero or Raspberry Pi 3 A+ into a classic Game Boy case to play old (handheld) console games on it. The most important electronic components are already included on the boards. In combination with other parts and free software you can build a portable retro console yourself.
