Hey Vogons forum,
As you guys can see from the title above me and my son want to start a project together where we are going to build an Emulator console from scratch using some old broken consoles for cases, which in all honesty I didn't know it was a possibility until he shown me a video on YouTube, awesome stuff. As of the outside casing, I'm going to use an old Nintendo 64 that hasn't worked for years, I knew it would come in handy. I pretty much have the casing covered on how it's going to look when it's finished as I have been watching quite a few videos since my son opened my eyes! My real problem is going to be the insides. I'm not much of an electrician but it doesn't look too technical from what I have seen online. The unfortunate side is when watching the videos they speak about "Raspberry PI" which I can find online like here http://www.used.forsale/canada/montreal/raspberry-pi and other components that I have no clue what they are or how they come into use.
What would be awesome is if some of you guys could help me out on how to get the insides working, starting with what components I will need to complete the task and a video on how to put it all together if there is one you know of on YouTube, please. I am really looking forward to getting started with my boy on this project and I think he's more excited than me.
This is the kind of idea we have in mind below
