Re: Show off your other gaming rigs!

https://youtu.be/PEZCZzghGFE Lol nice! Is that proprietary software running the servos? I wonder how much the XL version costs so my fat ass wouldn't break it. ^_^ There are free and paid versions of the motion software (that reads the real-time motion data from games). Obviously, the paid one is b...

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

I cracked it open the portable LCD ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/291709734092 ). It has regulated 3.3v, 5.2v and 12v output on certain points on the board. Its a little bulky but it seems that its going to fit fine in the Gameboy case with no trimming with the connectors, switch and buttons of the LCD ...

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

This thread has all the info on it. On the 2nd page I asked for proof since a mod/veteran flatly told me running it off 3.3-3.7v was not possible. He recanted that statement after seeing this thread. https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=127210 I cracked it open the portable LCD (...

Re: Cheaper than Teensy

That's for programming the microcontroller (ATMEGA32U4) AKA a teensy right? How does that work? Is it pre-programmed? ISP headers or similar Jtag headers are used in just about every microcontroller out there for ease of programming. The whole reason for the testers too is to see if we can program ...

I'm not saying that it's a mess, but I have just found a Pi Zero that I had thought I had lost :D
I have a large carton box with raspberry pi related parts, and keep discovering parts I forgot I ordered... :lol:

Re: Cheaper than Teensy

I'll contact you once I have the boards, and this version is already obsolete anyways so no biggie as I've started on a newer version with the extra feature that will make the build much easier but testing is still needed on this board before moving into an order on the next version. Great. Let me ...

I'm in USA, San Diego California.

Re: Cheaper than Teensy

Boards are heading out to the board house but figured I'd show a mockup of this board before I receive it. http://gerblook.org/image/WWVnADCMJeZQBdXouMHas8/top.png I would like to try this! Looks perfect! If you could spare a pcb only or even just the Gerber files, I can build it in a day or two ( ...
