There two aspects of this project that made it really cool, first would be that its programmable you can make your own games and load the code into it – I was thinking of making one that is similar to the brick game, some of you might not remember it but it’s a very famous game back at the 90’s and two it freakin comes with multicolor LEDs!
This project is neatly placed on a small board where the RGB LEDs, the microcontroller, the small coin-like speaker (piezo transducer) and the switches are attached. The brain of this tiny light of wonders is a PIC16F628A which drives the RGB LEDs through bipolar junction transistors. The BJTs are used as buffers so that the LEDs would not draw too much current from the PIC16F628A.
As of now there are only 3 available games but who knows brunoip might add more! Another neat thing about this project is that two of the four push button switches are placed in the sides – giving us the feel of a playstation gamepad but in 8 bits!
