A post appeared on the r/singapore subreddit early this morning. About half a day later, it is buzzing with awards, likes and admiring comments. The subject? A custom console made out of a watermelon that you can play Pokemon Emerald on.

Describing himself as a student from Singapore Management University studying Information Systems with a major in Business Analytics and Marketing, Cedrick Tan started this project as a joke but eventually got seriously into it.

He describes the contraption as “a watermelon with a rpi3b+ and some wires thrown in”.

For those that also had to google, rpi3b+ refers to a Raspberry Pi Model 3 B+. It is part of a series of Raspberry Pi computers which are tiny single-board computers developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi foundation.

Naturally, the next step after completing his special project was to bring it onto the train and nonchalantly game on it while people stared.
