For my latest RetroPie build, I wanted to go with a synthwave style, so I made this 80’s inspired theme for EmulationStation. Introducing Retrowave: plenty of laser grids, neon lights, and pixel test makes for a perfect match for RetroPie!
I was having some fun learning Adobe After Effects and put together this fun, 80’s style video splashscreen for RetroPie. Plenty of neon, laser grids, and glitchy VHS artifacts for a truly authentic synthwave experience!
I recently set up Pi-Hole, the awesome network-wide ad blocker that runs on a Raspberry Pi. But, I wanted an easy way to enable/disable it using physical buttons attached to the device itself. No problem- thanks to a Pimoroni Button Shim and some Python scripting, I can now control my Pi-Hole with the press of a button!
Read on for full instructions and the script I used.
