After a lot of working for about three days, at about three hours a day, I have a working fridge that looks like a Game Boy. This idea came to me when I saw something sort of similar online, just a decal for a fridge that looked like a Game Boy, and I looked over at my mini fridge and decided I could build one my self, that is also functional. I found all of the parts, and then decided to do it. The reasoning for the timing of this build; the middle of the 2015 BitFix GamBoy Classic Competition, when I already had the Game Boy Color Advance as an entry,is that I wouldn’t be able to be finished in time, so I still wanted an entry, and have all the time I need to finish the other project.
The Fridge is a functional mini fridge, with a custom door that looks like a Game Boy, and functions. Powered by a Raspberry Pi, this Mini Fridge will be a conversation piece for my dorm room, and one day my man cave.

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.
