Build your own recreation of classic computers (like the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 & Amiga), your own arcade cabinet or handheld, a headstart in coding your own projects, etc.
Easy read and a ton of inspiration for weekend projects for the geet in you! :-)
What you learn from this book is transferable to other computers and operating systems, other than the Raspberry Pi used on the examples.
The Raspberry Pi and this book is probably the best gift combo I can think off for people that like technology and classic arcade games.
I even made my own version of the classic Arcade Frogger, inspired by the first edition of this book, because "pixel perfect" collisions and the old graphics could use a revamp. Go download it for free (Linux, Mac & Windows)
