RetroPi Handheld Raspberry Pi Gaming Console

Please see here for a photo and directions: http://www.oracle.com...

Event Description

In this session Stephen will walk you through how to build your own retro handheld console that is powered by Java, runs on a Raspberry Pi, and is printed on a 3D printer.  Some of the topics that we will cover along the journey include:

•  Hacking Java on the Raspberry Pi

•  Rigging input devices with Pi4J

•  Insane performance tuning on the JVM

•  Why your boss [or SO] needs to buy you a 3D printer!

And of course your retro gaming mettle will be put to the test, so make sure to dust off your old 8 and 16 bit consoles to prepare.


This presentation is about the most fun you can have while still legitimately calling this conference “work.”  In fact, you will hopefully be inspired to do your own creative “work” leveraging Java and Raspberry Pi to hack the real world.
