Nintendo R.O.B. Robot – new interest in games #Nintendo #Vintage @AtariAge
We’ve been following the work by the maker community to enable modern control and programming of the Nintendo NES R.O.B. robot. Adafruit even helped program hardware to control the robot without the need for an old analog TV.
See the Adafruit Tutorial on controlling R.O.B. with an Adafruit Circuit Playground Express via IR.
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.
