Electronic enthusiasts and gamers looking for a quick build project to keep them for a few hours, with plenty of fun afterwards. May be interested in this awesome µGame DIY games console kit, designed by Deshipu and is now available to purchase directly from the Tindie website priced at $24.99.
µGame takes the form of a miniature handheld game console, for which you can write your own games, making it a great way to learn more about the Python programming language. The kit is supplied requiring users to only attach the display, and a battery and you are ready to play. However you could make your own custom case for the handheld console to keep the electronic components safe during transit and in your pocket, but this is entirely up to you.
The DIY games console kit shows up as a USB drive, so there is no need to install any software drivers or other programs, simply copy your source code directly onto its storage drive. The system also provides an easy way to edit code if desired from the µGame, and the console will automatically restart if changes in the code are detected, or you run your new program.
Specifications of the µGame DIY games console include an Atmel SAMD21 ARM Cortex M0 microcontroller running at 48MHz with 32kB RAM, with 2MB flash storage space for the files, a 1.44″ 128×128 TFT 16-bit colour display, 4mm mono speaker and six quiet buttons. All powered 400mA battery charging circuit and a 890mAh Nokia BL-5B battery which you will need to supply.
