Here's a way to create your own Tiny Video Game console using the TinyDuino. This uses the main TinyDuino processor board (basically a mini version of the Arduino Uno), a Joystick board (which has two analog joysticks and two shoulder buttons), and the TinyScreen, a very small OLED display. Several games examples are currently given, like a Flappy Bird clone, simple Mario clone, Asteroids, Space Invaders, and many more are being developed.

Components Used:

  • TinyShield Joystick: link
  • OLED TinyScreen: link
  • TinyDuino Processor: link
  • TinyShield USB: link
  • TinyScreen Video Game Kit: link

Step 1: Charging

To charge your battery, attach your USB TinyShield to your processor board and plug in your micro USB cable. An amber light will turn on to indicate the battery is charging. When charging is complete, the light will turn off.

<p>that looks cool do you have to program it?</p><p>:)</p>
<p>do you have to buy the kit and the other parts or can you just get the kit?</p>
Hi Timothy,<br><br>The kit has all the parts needed, thanks!
<p>Do you download games to it?</p>
<p>It worked like a charm! Thanks!<br><br><br>Do you know where I can get more games for this little beast??</p>
<p>so cool</p><p>:)</p>
<p>a bit too expensive, otherwise I would put it together immediately ! Great job.</p>
This is really cool!! Nice work =)
Thisbis really cool!
<p>The only problem is that it is $87.8 but looks so fun</p>
<p>Nice demonstration of the TinyDuino's accessories and capabilities!</p><p>For people curious about the cost, as of 5/21/2015:</p><p>OLED Screen - $25</p><p>Joystick board - $25</p><p>TinyDuino - $20</p><p>TinyShield USB - $18</p>
<p>It is useful to know about the parts, but at $87 this is a rather expensive, snap together toy.</p>
<p>Thats Crazy Small!</p>
<p>so lovely, Super Mario Bros best game ever!</p>
saw your booth at Maker Faire San Mateo! the size of the components is pretty revolutionary for makers, and look pretty easy to use as well.
<p>such a good design, but what the specification of the components? </p>
lol that is just to cool !
the Tinyduino is awesome! I first saw it on kickstarter and almost got one but it was just a little to expensive.
<p>Amazing device there! Thanks for sharing with the community!</p><p>- Sam</p>
