PiGRRL Zero Review by Andrew Stott @DisruptItYrslf

Andrew Stott, Disrupt It Yourself, recently shared his build of the PiGRRL Zero project.

I’ve been following Andrew’s progress on Instagram and enjoying his build progress. He’s doing some interesting multi-color techniques that take advantage of 0-bottom layer via slice settings to embed infill patterns into the case. This gives the enclosure a sweet looking triangular texture. Then, by pausing the print job and swapping out the filament for a different color, you can achieve a multi-colored case. He’s also made his own modifications like stripping the USB adapter and embedding it into the case, affectively replacing the USB port for a headphone jack. This is exactly what I like seeing from the maker community!

This is my build video and review of the PiGRRL Zero project from Adafruit. I highly recommend this project to everyone! Especially if you love retro games like me!

PiGRRL Zero on Adafruit Learning System


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
