You know when you get that bolt of lighting of an idea, that’s what happened when FacelessTech came up with the idea of making a Gameboy cart that looked like a NES cart.
I started by modeling a standard Gameboy cart, I just wanted to know what the minimum model that would fit the Gameboy cart PCB and fit into a Gameboy. After I got that working I moved on to modeling the NES parts. I needed to get some dimensions and to get things into perspective I took a l NES cart label into GIMP and scaled it so It would fit the Gameboy cart.
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.
