Wolf3D-style raycasting with an FPGA and Arduino #Graphics #FPGA #Arduino @dormando @TinyFPGA @Adafruit

Dormando writes about a classical raycasting engine using embedded microcontrollers and FPGAs.

The project uses a Adafruit Metro Mini (ATmega 328P) and a small Field Programmable Gate Array (a TinyFPGA BX ICE40LP8K) on two small boards, outputting to a 320x240x16bit SPI LCD from Adafruit. It is programmed a mix of C and Verilog which is on dormando’s GitHub repo under MIT license.

You can play/download it for free at https://mutantleg.itch.io/lab – all of the GFX are public domain (CC0), (credit is not required but much appreciated indeed) The game and graphics are by Mutantleg.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
