Nintendo Switch fans rejoice! Gamer Tim Lindquist wanted to create a portable gaming system that could also double as a portable computer, and "NinTIMdo RP" is the result. It's powered by a Raspberry Pi 3 that holds a Broadcom BCM287 processor (ARM architecture) running a light version of Linux (pixel) with emulators on top through retroarch and retropie, which interfaces with the 7" touchscreen to display the GUI. "On the top there are two USB ports for external serial communication (mouse, keyboard, extra controllers). There is also a 5 LED indicator (blinks randomly on boot, battery level indicator, volume indicator) as well as the ON/OFF button. On the bottom there is a micro USB used to charge the internal 10,000mAh battery which runs the whole show," according to Tim. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Remote-Controlled GTR


Sony's PS4 Pro is great for racing games, but for something more realistic, you may need to check out this remote-controlled Nissan GT-R. You read that right, the automaker heavily modified a GT-R that could be driven entirely with a DualShock 4 controller, and called it the "GT-R /C". It was driven by Mardenborough around Silverstone's National Circuit, where the car hit a top speed of 131 mph and averaged 76 mph. To make things easy (and safer), it was controlled from a helicopter that followed the race car around the track. "This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff. The GT-R /C has brought my two worlds together - the virtual of gaming and the reality of motorsport - in a way I never thought possible. The response from the car when using the controller was far more engaging than I thought it would be. JLB Design has done an incredible job at making everything respond really well. Steering, acceleration and braking were all intelligently configured, allowing for controlled application so I could really get a feel through the corners and hold it steady down the fast straights," said Mardenborough.
