This mini gaming system will run on the SAMD21G Atmel microcontroller. I'm planning on cramming a giant 320-400mAh LiPo battery behind its monstrous 64x48 pixel OLED screen. Tired of your old "not very clicky" boring typical buttons? How about Cherry MX buttons. That is right. This system will have actual cherry MX buttons so you can fit any of your favourite key caps. With an on board accelerometer(+ gyro and compass - MPU 9250), your games don't just involve clicking, they also require some movement, you'll be accelerating all over the place with this thing. Watch out!
Possible upgrades/addon modules:
- Extra Buttons
- GPIO Board
- RGB LEDs
- Camera Module
Want early access to start designing games and apps? Contact me. I'm looking for creative developers to get an early version of the board and start creating some apps/games - maybe even a custom bootloader or game loader.
I'm in the works of possibly Kickstarting this. Unless I win the HackADay prize, then I wouldn't need to! :)
There has been a great deal of value to me in my involvement with the project. Would like to share it with the Get insights here team so they can also read it and implement something new.
