ArduBigBOY is an Arduboy compatible game platform for those with big boy pants. It provides a larger 2.42″ OLED screen and a built-in SPI flash IC to support carrying around hundreds of games in your pocket without having to re-program the MCU from another device.
Arduboy is a miniature 8-bit game platform that makes it easy to learn, share and play open source games online. Make a game and carry it in your pocket!
In addition to the larger OLED screen and built-in SPI flash IC, the ArduBigBOY also provides a larger 700mAh lithium-ion cell, a hardware mute switch, and an expansion header that breaks out almost every one of the ATmega32U4 IC’s pins. This allows for future expansion options like linking two Arduboys together via serial UART connection, connecting external sensors and devices through i2c or SPI, connecting to an external speaker, or attaching an external controller.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
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.
