Making a Gameboy cart with an OLED display screen #Nintendo #Gameboy #Gaming
The FacelessTech blog posts about making custom cases for Gameboy cartridges and including an OLED display inside:
I’ve been making custom 3d printed cases for Gameboy games and I thought I would combine some electrons in this time. I wanted to add a screen to the Gameboy game but It would just display the game title and be completely stand alone from the game.
If you remember the ghost cart which took advantage of the small size of the cheap repro flash carts available online. That got me thinking, There is a lot of unused space so I did some measuring and through together a PCB that combines the Arduino pro micro and a I2C connected OLED screen. The whole stack up is a bit thick but it would still go into any Gameboy because the top part of most Gameboy games are exposed at the top so you can pull them out.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
