Leaving behind the convenience of the pocket sized Game Boy for something little bigger. via kotaku
Earlier this year, reader Ilhan Ünal got started building his own Game Boy, which he only recently completed. It’s…a little bigger than Nintendo’s original version.
Named the Game Boy XXL, Ünal’s handheld is more of a deskheld. It’s running off a Raspberry Pi, with an old 19” computer monitor acting as the screen, and was built with laser-cut MDF (Medium-density fibreboard).

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.
