Every Maker has experienced anger/frustration/mind-numness or any other nasty feeling due to burning circuits, crooked dremeling, melitng materials or what ever misshap every project holds. What better way to sooth out the stress than with some nice SMB Music? Never has up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, B, A, Start in Contra so satisfiying than with the DIY Workbench playable NES.
Wow! I'm Featured. I feel really flattered.
Echenle un ojo a la version en Espaniol muy pronto!

HACK-A-DAY Post. Thank you Caleb!
Step 1: Get ur Materials!
Go to any kiosk, fleemarket, e-store or biddingsite and get your hand on a MegaJoy 1780983 games in 1 type of thing. If size is not an issue, get a whole NES console.
1x Nes on a Chip.
Do the same for a PSOne LCD.
1x PSOne 5" TTF Screen.
For a true 1980 NES experience, you NEED a NES Controller.
Get some Plexyglass.
3x 18 cm-13 cm-3 mm
1x 20 cm-15 cm-3 mm
The Power Supply, LEDs and other Electronics
The screen runs off 7.5 V and the NES runs off 5 V. I don't want to be messing about with more than one power supply so I'm going to destribute power from a single adjustable supply. To do so I need to build a tiny Voltage regulator circuits using some ICs.
-For the 7.5 V Power Supply' (Screen)
1x LM350 IC
1x 220 Ohm resistor 5% 1/4 W
1x Stay Set 0-400 Ohm potenciometer
1x 1.2 kilo-Ohm resistor 5% 1/4 W
1x 0.1 uF ceramic capacitor
1x 1.0 uF electrolytic capacitor
1x heat dissipator.
"-For the 5.0 V Power Supply (NoaC and LEDs)"
1x 7805 IC
1x 1 mF electronytic capacitor.
You will need some cable, some 40/60 solder (if you can find leadless better) some screws and a 12 V Power Supply. Off course, you also Need a workbench or workspace to put your stress releasing NES.
