I've been working on an updated design of Karri's programmer board and discussed making more of these with him, he's given me the go-ahead. This version is a "Pi Hat" design. It slots in on top of a Raspberry Pi 2 GPIO connector and has standoffs to secure it in place. The board uses a proper Lynx cartridge connector, not pogo pins. In addition there are a couple of indicator LEDs to show activity/error status. The board is compatible with Karri's cart PCBs (read/write) and it can read other carts, including carts that make use of SWVCC for power. You can purchase a set of 10x blank cart boards from Karri here - http://www.whitelynx.fi/shop/#!/Atari-Lynx-boards/c/15290050/offset=0&sort=normal. Note that you will need cart shells to make use of these, one white shell will be supplied with each board but you can purchase more if you like.

You can use a Raspberry Pi Zero with this board, but be warned that it runs significantly slower vs a Raspberry Pi 2 or 3.
These are the curved lip 3D printed cartridges that are available for purchase.
This is the 3D printed case for a Raspberry Pi, you can download its STL from Thingiverse, if you want to get one with your programmer board, tell me and I can print it for you.
