STAR FORCE PI – Raspberry Pi Mini-Arcade Tabletop @Raspberry_Pi #raspberrypi #piday
May the force be with this
Take all the arcade power of the 80’s and 90’s, cram it into a tiny computer and build it into a classic 1984 ‘GrandStand Star Force’ tabletop for true retro excellence. This is the STAR FORCE PI.
I plan on making a ‘How-to’ video and be more elaborate, but for now you can see the finished product.

Shell: 1984 GrandStand Star Force Electronic Tabletop Game
PCB: Raspberry Pi Model B+ @8kHz | Arcade Kit hwhardsoft.de
Interface: Joystick & 2-button controller, Start/Coin/Esc buttons
OS: PiMame 0.7.9 | Screen: TFT 4.2″ QVGA (320×240)
Battery Life: ~4-5 hours continuous gameplay
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s
CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
