R-Kade Zero

Post by TonyD » Tue Feb 23, 2016 11:54 pm

Hi All

R-Kade Zero + Raspberry Pi Zero = Tiny Video Gaming System

As well as building the Uzebox, I've also built a number of Raspberry Pi based arcade systems over the last few years starting in 2012 with R-Kade, last year with R-Kade Mini and now my latest endeavour is R-Kade Zero, a powerful video gaming system which fits into the palm of your hand.

After showing it off at Maker Space my local maker community, I got enough encouragement to start it as my very first kickstarter project.

You can check it out at:

It's actually a pretty nice idea there. When Doom is heavily used to promote the device in a video, I feel like I am the target market; something my insane world views and specialty interests rarely afford me. That right there makes becoming a 1st time backer of anything quite tempting.
