I'm currently working on the Retrode2, an updated and extended version of my multi USB adapter for retro game carts. The new edition will feature a SNES and a Genesis slot, as well as a pair of game controller ports for each. (See video
Now I was wondering if it could be possible to fit an entire emulation system into the case, making it a candidate for the best-performing, smallest, cart-based multi retro console ever. The TI OMAP3530, for instance, should have plenty of power for, say, hq2x/hq3x-upscaled emulation of SNES and Genesis, and many emulators have already been ported to the system (see e.g. the Pandora apps
). The free space inside the enclosure will easily accommodate a Gumstix board and some additional hardware (though I'll have to take exact measurements). A bigger challenge I see is in attaching an HDMI connector, but with a bit of case dremeling it might even be possible to fit an entire Summit daughterboard in.
What do you think?
Anyway, if someone wants to give it a try, PM me and I'll see how I can be of (moral and/or material) help. The Retrode2 will probably become available around June or July so it's going to have to be all theory until then
