Nostalgic about those video games you grew up playing with? Want to recreate those childhood memories of playing Mario or Sonic the Hedgehog from your favorite Nintendo or Sega console? Retro Lindo is bringing those classic video games back to your TV.
Retro Lindo is an all-in-one media hub that combines all classic consoles in one tiny box. Powered by a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, the device can run several programmed graphical console emulators to include Atari 2600, Super Nintendo, Gameboy Classic and Advance, Neo-Geo, Sega Megadrive and Genesis, Gamegear, and PlayStation, among others.
The all-in-one console connects to your TV via an HDMI port. With a Micro SD storage slot that supports 16 to 32 GB of memory and four USB ports, you can easily add ROMs or game files. The USB ports also serve as connectors for game controllers. The console is also compatible with wireless game controllers by using a separate USB Bluetooth dongle for PS3 or the Microsoft 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Xbox 360.
According to the developers, they used the single-board computer module Raspberry Pi 2 Model B to design a portable device that requires low-power consumption without compromising processing performance.
Nonetheless, apart from running programmed graphical console emulators, Retro Lindo is also a complete media and entertainment hub. The developers integrated the open-source Kodi/XBMC software in the device to allow playback of several audio and video file formats, and Internet streaming.
With an IR receiver, the device also works out of the box with remote controls of CEC-enabled TV sets, Xbox One Media Remote, and Apple Receiver.
Retro Lindo is developed and manufactured by Lindobox, a startup technology company based in The Netherlands. The device is currently on its preproduction and commercial production phase. Further details about the product and the company can be found in their website.
