ESP8266 VGA Pong

In this Instructables I will show how to build a reproduction of the the classic game Pong for a VGA monitor, using a ESP8266 and few other components. This game is made possible by the EspVGAx library recently published on GitHub by Sandro Maffiodo (aka Smaffer) and, as far as I know, this is the first game exploiting it. The library implements a resolution of 512 x 480 p ...

MAGNUM OPUS KEYBOARDUS, OR BUILD AD INFINITUM?

It happens to pretty much everyone who gets into keyboards. No commercial keyboard can meet all your needs, so you start building them. Use them a while, find problems, build a new keyboard to address them. Pretty soon you think you have enough user experience to design the perfect keeb — the be-all, end-all magnum opus clacker you can take to the grave. This time, it happened to [aydenvis]. We must say, th ...

BABY KEYBOARD IS REALLY THREE BOARDS

Just when we think we’ve peeped all the cool baby keebs out there, another think comes along. This bad boy built by [andyclymer] can be configured three different ways, depending on what kind of control you’re after. As designed, the PCB can be used as a six-switch macro keyboard, or a rotary encoder with two switches, or a pair of rotary encoders. It’s meant to be controlled with Trinket M0, which means it ...

OPEN-SOURCE ARM DEVELOPMENT SIMPLIFIED

The ARM series of processors are an industry standard of sorts for a vast array of applications. Virtually anything requiring good power or heat management, or any embedded system which needs more computing power than an 8-bit microcontroller is a place where an ARM is likely found. While they do appear in various personal computers and laptops, [Pieter] felt that their documentation for embedded processors ...
