Wire up a retro joystick to Raspberry Pi 400
We love the classic DB9 joysticks, made popular in the 1980s (like the Kempston one we use in this tutorial). Nothing beats playing retro games with an original joystick. In this tutorial you’ll learn how to use a DB9 adaptor and wire it up to the GPIO pins on a Raspberry Pi 400 computer. Then plug in your original joystick and play games in the original way.
Upcycling an old speaker system with ultra-modern innards
We love this BOSEBerry Pi project by David Hunt. He has taken an old BOSE SoundDock from the iPod days and upcycled it with Raspberry Pi. Now it can stream music, internet radio, and keep him updated with the latest news and events.
