Created by Thingverse user Ampersands, the 'Pirakeet' handheld game console is a Gameboy-inspired device that allows users to play games in a retro fashion.

The 'Pirakeet' was designed by the user to be printed on 3D printers that are small in size rather than just for commercial-grade and large systems. The 'Pirakeet' makes use of the Retropie emulation system that allows it to use a Raspberry Pi into different game consoles. This lets users play classic games that would've been found on the NES and original Gameboy to their heart's content.

The 'Pirakeet' handheld game console can be 3D-printed from home and created for around $100, which could translate to better cost savings and customization for advanced gamers.
