But there are projects which leverage on Raspberry Pi and Retropie operating system. One of the members from Sudomod forum shows a Wii U controller being modified and it is running RetroPie. It features a 6.5-inch HDMI display, a Teensy 2.0 for the input setup, 3400 mAh dual batteries and an external SD card slot. It cost $195 to build one.
