BIV: a one-color handheld video game #Gaming #ShowAndTell #Adafruit @Adafruit

Chris was on the Adafruit Show and Tell to demonstrate his project – BIV is a one color handheld video game. It is built using an Adafruit Powerboost 500, Pro Trinket 5V 8×8 Dotstar matrix, 400mAh lipo battery, and a tactile switch from E-Switch.

8 pieces of the game were 3D printed on my Prusa I3 MK3S in silky white, galaxy blue, gold, clear and stainless steel PLA. You can check out the whole model here: https://a360.co/2RRtY9R

Downloadable eagle files for the board and 3D models from McMaster-Carr were a big help. I also laminated together some laser cut acrylic pieces and polished them for the interesting pixel focus point.

Here are some pictures:
