To match the style of the device shown in the movie/games modern components were avoided where possible, which made things a bit more difficult. The only components where this project cheats is the LCD module instead of a CRT, and accelerometer and magenetometer modules.
To power the device, 8x AA batteries are required. The device supports NiCd rechargeable batteries, NiMH will not charge properly with the included charging circuit.
In this project its stated that it uses the HB100 module which actually is not true, the modules being used are Chinese clones which work just fine.
It is actually not possible to purchase the HB100 modules from websites like Mouser, there seems to be a restriction which prevents them from being exported ??? (at least to Croatia)
