  2. Does this eliminate the need for an Arduino Teensy or something related to that? It gets connected directly to the Pi?

    1. You can use a teensy or you can directly connect the input buttons to the Pi. You just need the Adafruit Retrogame utility which is already pre-installed with my custom RetroPie image at http://www.tinkerboy.xyz/retropie-sdcard-image-with-built-in-gpio-controller-support/.
