Via mitxela.com, a game console which uses individual eeproms with games on them. It uses an ATmega 128 for code and an electronic oscilloscope for the CRT output.
A fun and popular coming-of-age project for microcontrollers is to make a game that plays on an oscilloscope. Partly because I couldn’t decide which game to make, and partly because I wanted to make something special, I decided to build a games console, with a handful of different games on little cartridges. I built the prototype and wrote all of the games in 2014 over a period of about two months.

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.
