Be Your Inner Mogwai, Build a ‘Pi Score MAME Cabinet’ | #3Dprinting #RaspberryPi #gremlins
With a nod to the shape and design of the retro Donkey Kong arcade toy from the early 80s that was featured in Gremlins (1984; from a scene which in turn became its own Kotobukiya toy!), Jeremy Williams and Sean Charlesworth recreated the cabinet, only now you can use a Raspberry Pi 3, MAME software, and a slew of other tech including some Adafruit hardware (thanks for making the wishlist – that’s really convenient!).
Here’s a ‘grab from the Gremlins scene:
And the original Donkey Kong cabinet and replicated Pi Score 3D-printed case:
PowerBoost 1000 Charger – Rechargeable 5V Lipo USB Boost @ 1A – 1000C: PowerBoost 1000C is the perfect power supply for your portable project! With a built-in load-sharing battery charger circuit, you’ll be able to keep your power-hungry project running even while recharging the battery! This little DC/DC boost converter module can be powered by any 3.7V LiIon/LiPoly battery, and convert the battery output to 5.2V DC for running your 5V projects. Read more.
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.
