Pimoroni Teases RP2040-Powered PicoSystem Gaming Device


Pimoroni has said its PicoSystem handheld gaming device is “coming soon” since the Raspberry Pi Pico was released on January 21. Now it seems like the miniature console’s debut might actually be approaching, because today Pimoroni software lead Phil Howard published two videos showing the device in action to Twitter.

PicoSystem is based on the RP2040 system on a chip (SoC) introduced via the Raspberry Pi Pico that features a dual-core Arm Cortex M0+ processor, 264KB of SRAM, and 2MB of flash memory as standard, but it is highly likely that PicoSystem will come with much more storage. Pimoroni stashed RP2040 SoC in a case, roughly the size of a Game Boy Micro, that features a directional pad, four buttons, a square display, and a lithium polymer battery with USB-C charging. The company hasn’t revealed too much about the PicoSystem. The display size is unknown, but we do know that the IPS screen has a resolution of 240 x 240 px.
