Who are we?

We are a few freelancers with background in computer technology and 3D design who work together to bring cool projects alive. This is a local business, you can learn more about it on www.lindobox.com.

How does it work?

Retro Lindo is powered by the Raspberry Pi small single-board computer. Within a 3D printed case and equipped with 2 controllers it plays game ROMs through emulators. It runs a custom Raspbian Operating System tweaked for retrogaming and media entertainment. It uses many open source projects to achieve that, most notably:

  • Emulation Station, by Alec Lofquist, is the interface that lets you navigate in your game library and switch between consoles.
  • Libretro handles several console emulators, manages the controllers, and offers features such as game save and rewinding.
  • Kodi is an Media entertainment hub with a powerful add-ons system.

The graphical theme ‘simple’ used by Emulation Station has been licensed to Retro Lindo by Nils Bonenberger.

All these softwares are free. You can download them and build a system yourself. The price of Retro Lindo includes the hardware, the 3D printed case, and the service of providing a plug-n-play solution.
