Build an inexpensive handheld Arduino color console

Arduino Pro Mini 3.3V 8 MHz As most inexpensive LCDs work at 3.3v the Arduino for this project works at 3.3v too. At only 8MHz the Arduino Pro Mini 3.3v is slow by today's standards but fast enough for most classic games. Other Arduinos or compatibles can be used in its place. If an 5v Arduino like the Uno is used you must use a Level shifter from 5v to 3.3v or you'll risk frying the TFT. 2.2" TFT 240x320 S ...

Arduino punk console

This is my first build using an arduino microcontroller. I wanted to create a simple tone output device along the lines of the 555-basedatari punk console, but using solely the mcu as the tone generator. Unfortunately, that was just too simple a task with a microcontroller to play with--it was done in about five minutes and my mind was already forging ahead with a bunch of stupid ideas. Since coding the ard ...
