In this video I discuss my plans on how to make a handheld game console with detachable and swappable controls. Also included is a video of me making the 3D models.

You know that you can use those OLED displays directly, no need to use the large and expensive module? You just need a couple of capacitors and a resistor. Possibly also a transistor to handle the reset pin, since you probably don't want to waste a GPIO pin from the attiny for that.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Hey there. I bought the OLED display as is. Do you mean to say I could desolder the actual screen and connect to it directly? If so, that is interesting. Do you have a link I can read up on this? Thanks!

It gets better. You can buy just the screen, for much less than the whole module. You can find the schematics of that module or example at Adafruit's website: — all you have to do is to re-create that schematic on your board (if you power your attiny with 3.3V, you can skip the voltage shifting circuitry).

  Are you sure? yes | no

Thank you for giving me more details. I'll look into it soon. Thanks!
