What's a Freeplay CM3 ?

The Freeplay CM3 is a handheld console that integrates the power of the Raspberry Pi CM3 inside the convenient form factor of the Game Boy Advance. The Freeplay CM3 uses the Raspberry Pi Computing Module 3 which has the same exact processor as a Raspberry Pi 3, but with a convenient size specifically designed to be built into other devices as a main control unit.

The project was initially known as Gamepie Advance and used a Raspberry Pi Zero as processing unit until a (successful) Kickstarter campaign was launched to fund the Raspberry Pi CM3 version. 

The Freeplaytech's Freeplay CM3 is inspired by (and runs) RetroPieRetroPie is built on top of RaspbianEmulationStationRetroArch & Libretro, etc. If you haven’t checked out those projects, please do.

Who is this made for ?
