Playing arcade games on a system inside a tiny mint tin #RaspberryPiPico #Gaming
Adafruit loves projects in Altoids tins, having built several in the past including the popular USB MintyBoost USB charger. GitHub user kkehe has designed the mintyPico, a gaming machine built into an Altoids Smalls tin (very small). It’s based on a Raspberry Pi Pico processor and a SH1106 display.
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.
